New York Post Insiders Slag 'Very Flimsy' Hunter Biden Stories - 2020-10-18
The New York Post's own journalists say they are skeptical of the paper's stories about Hunter Biden, including the man who wrote most of the "smoking gun" story and would not put his name on it, four newsroom sources told Intelligencer.
On Wednesday morning, the Post dropped what it clearly hoped would be a bombshell — an exclusive report based on copies of emails and photos that had supposedly belonged to Hunter, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The Post said the files were recovered from a computer that belonged to Hunter and was dropped off at a computer-repair shop near the Biden family's home in Wilmington, Delaware, last spring. The shop's owner, a Trump supporter, gave the files to the president's consigliere, Rudy Giuliani, who finally delivered them to the Post. The Post has not said publicly whether it authenticated the files.
"I think it was very flimsy," one Post reporter told Intelligencer.
