Why Not Go To The WSJ?



I guess we have all learned our lesson that if you drop off your computer to be repaired, either (1) be sure to pick it back up or (2) make sure the hard drive doesn't contain material that can be used against you and others. I wonder what happens if you drop off a computer, then you die before you pick it back up? Does the computer become the property of the repair shop and they can do what they want to with the contents?


Anyways....


It is unfortunate the contents of the laptop could not have been verified before the 2020 presidential election. Thinking about that today, I wondered why Giuliani took the computer to the NY Post. Seems to me there are more credible news sources to go to. How about Murdoch's other news outlets -- the WSJ and Fox News?


Full disclosure, my opinion is Hunter and Joe Biden should be prosecuted if they broke the law.


I found this article from October 20, 2020 to answer my question:


President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told The New York Times on Sunday that he gave the New York Post a copy of a hard drive said to belong to Hunter Biden because other news outlets would have scrutinized it too much.


Giuliani told The Times that he chose the Post because "either nobody else would take it, or if they took it, they would spend all the time they could to try to contradict it before they put it out."


Several of the Post's journalists voiced concerns about its reporting in interviews with The Times and New York magazine's Intelligencer, saying the sourcing was "flimsy" and didn't meet "journalistic standards."


The Post last week detailed emails purportedly written by Hunter Biden and taken from a laptop left at a repair shop. They suggested that Joe Biden used his power as vice president to help his son curry favor with a Ukrainian energy company.


But the Post's reporting was filled with holes and red flags that raised questions about its authenticity, including whether the emails are real, how they were obtained, and who obtained them. The FBI is investigating whether the emails were part of a foreign intelligence operation.


In an interview with The Daily Beast over the weekend, Giuliani described concerns that the leaks were part of a Russian disinformation campaign as "a bunch of bulls---."


He did say, however, that there was a "50/50" chance that one of his associates, a Ukrainian government official named Andrii Derkach, was a Russian spy.
