CNN’s Brian Stelter acknowledges Hunter Biden scandal is legitimate, says it could derail Joe Biden’s 2024 plans

CNN’s Brian Stelter has acknowledged — almost two years late — that the Hunter Biden story is not “Russian disinformation” after all.

The host of Reliable Sources even suggested that the scandal could complicate Joe Biden’s 2024 plans, Fox News reported.

Brian Stelter makes damning admission

When the New York Post publicized Hunter Biden’s emails weeks before the 2020 election, Stelter dismissed the story as a “manufactured scandal” and impugned the Post’s credibility, calling the newspaper not “fully reliable” and part of the “right-wing media machine.”

“There’s a lot about this story that does not add up,” Stelter said. “And, I mean, for all we know, these emails were made up, or maybe some are real and some are fakes, we don’t know. But we do know that this is a classic example of the right-wing media machine.”

Almost two years after the election, Stelter is saying the complete opposite: the Hunter Biden tale is not “just a right-wing media story.” During an interview on his show Reliable Sources, Stelter questioned whether Hunter could be charged and, if so, whether Joe Biden would reassess running in 2024.

“What about Hunter? Hunter, under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens. Could he decide not to run for re-election given his son?”

News? Not really

What Stelter failed to mention is that the Hunter Biden scandal is not news.

Had journalists like Stelter done their due diligence, it would have been an issue in the 2020 election.

Instead, Biden’s cheerleaders in the partisan media censored the scandal, with the help of “intelligence” officials who baselessly asserted the story was “Russian disinformation.”

Now that Joe Biden has become a burden for the Democrats, the media have come around to acknowledging that the New York Post was on to something about his family’s corruption.

Is it any wonder that nobody trusts CNN anymore?
