CNN and the Washington Post both called the Hunter Biden laptop story Russian disinformation before the 2020 election.
Now, both outlets have magically discovered that the story is legitimate.
They are even repeating some of the things they called lies when conservative news outlets said them a year and a half ago.

Here’s an excerpt, via Twitchy:
Biden aides and some former U.S. intelligence officials have voiced concern that the device may have been manipulated by Russia to interfere in the campaign. On Capitol Hill, Democrats have dismissed earlier reports about Hunter Biden’s work in China as lacking credibility or being part of a Russian disinformation campaign. The Post analysis included forensic work by two outside experts who assessed the authenticity of numerous emails related to the CEFC matter.
In addition, The Post found that financial documents on the copy of Hunter Biden’s purported laptop match documents and information found in other records, including newly disclosed bank documents obtained by Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance and Judiciary committees.
The potential energy projects Hunter Biden discussed with CEFC never came to fruition.
Nonetheless, accounts linked to Hunter Biden received at least $3.79 million in payments from CEFC through consulting contracts, according to bank records and joint agreements reviewed by The Post.
Step 1: Say it's definitely fake
Step 2: Wait until after election
Step 3: Begin analyzing whether it might not be fake https://t.co/Y46HVhHr0S

Jesse Kelly has a good theory about this.
The media choosing to report on the Hunter Biden stuff now means one of two things:
1. Real legal problems are coming for Hunter and they’re trying to get in front of them.
2. The Communist power brokers have decided Joe is too much of a liability and want him gone. https://t.co/Ch2Fv7h52o

Are CNN or the Washington Post going to apologize for lying for all these months?
