New York Post Published Hunter Biden Report Amid Newsroom Doubts - NYT

The New York Post’s front-page article about Hunter Biden on Wednesday was written mostly by a staff reporter who refused to put his name on it, two Post employees said.

Bruce Golding, a reporter at the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid since 2007, did not allow his byline to be used because he had concerns over the article’s credibility, the two Post employees said, speaking on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retaliation.

Coming late in a heated presidential campaign, the article suggested that Joseph R. Biden Jr. had used his position to enrich his son Hunter when he was vice president. The Post based the story on photos and documents the paper said it had taken from the hard drive of a laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden.

Many Post staff members questioned whether the paper had done enough to verify the authenticity of the hard drive’s contents, said five people with knowledge of the tabloid’s inner workings. Staff members also had concerns about the reliability of its sources and its timing, the people said.

The article named two sources: Stephen K. Bannon, the former adviser to President Trump now facing federal fraud charges, who was said to have made the paper aware of the hard drive last month; and Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, who was said to have given the paper “a copy” of the hard drive on Oct. 11.

he should really sue Murdoch. Bigly.

2. Agree.

It's maddening to see R's continually get away with this nonsense.

I hope every Mainstream & social media site now repeats how the NY Times & Rudy & Steve's big fat lie blew up in their faces.

5. So they had doubts

It's not like there's any consequences for a news outlet slagging on Democrats with unsupported nonsense. At least Bruce Golding had enough sense not to let his name go on the article, but it wouldn't have hurt his career as a toadying suck up. The New York Post will be right there next time someone wants to unload another steaming pile into the public arena.

6. The Post needs to have a consequence.

Aside from the fact that they're now akin to the National Enquirer.

7. Bannon and Rudy, why aren't they in jail???

"The pro-Trump New York Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch, a steady supporter of the president despite recently casting doubt on Trump's reelection prospects. The lead reporter was a former producer for Sean Hannity, Trump's best friend on his favorite news network, Fox News, also controlled by the Murdochs. And the story asserted the existence of a meeting absent any documentation that it actually occurred. (The Biden campaign says the tabloid never sought comment on the veracity of the claims.)"

"As it turns out, Bannon told a leading Dutch public broadcaster last month that he had a copy of Hunter Biden's hard drive."

"You'll see. Stand by. Stand by," Bannon teased on camera.
