CNN’s Brian Stelter was recently asked by a reporter for Brietbart News if he stands by claims that Hunter Biden’s emails were part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
This subject is coming up because the New York Times has finally come around and acknowledged the legitimacy of the infamous Hunter Biden laptop.
Stelter clearly peddled the same line as the rest of the liberal media.
Breitbart News reports:
Exclusive– Meltdown: CNN’s Brian Stelter Refuses to Walk Back His False Claims Hunter Biden’s Laptop Emails Were ‘Russian Disinformation’
CNN anchor Brian Stelter on Friday refused to walk back inaccurate claims he promoted on his program when he claimed Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” emails were “Russian disinformation.”
“Hey, just curious, when did I claim ‘Hunter Biden’s laptop emails were likely Russian propaganda’? Can you send me the quote?” he sent in a direct message on Twitter to this reporter, a reference to a Thursday Breitbart News article in which he was listed along with 14 others in establishment media for falsely suggesting the laptop was Russian propaganda and disinformation.
In response, Stelter was asked if he stood by the inaccurate claims he made on his show where he suggested the Hunter Biden emails may have been “made up” and could have been “Russian disinformation,” or if he was planning to retract the inaccurate comments.
Stelter was also provided with this video which clearly shows him using the phrase “Russian disinformation” to refer to the emails and suggesting they may have been “made up.”
This video serves as a pretty grim reminder:

What the media did with this story is so obvious.
They pushed a lie to protect Biden befor the election. It was all about getting Trump out of office.
