NPR reporter calls for outlet for ignoring Hunter Biden scandal

National Public Radio (NPR), which infamously tweeted in October 2020 that they didn’t want to waste listeners’ time on a non-story, has not apologized, but one of its reporters is calling on the company for ignoring Hunter’s discovery Biden’s laptop in a repair shop and the hard drive that Joe Biden linked to his son’s influence on peddling.

“Why haven’t you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post’s Hunter Biden story?” Terence Samuel, acting vice president and executive editor at NPR, tweeted. “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that aren’t real stories, and we don’t want to waste listeners and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distraction.”

Laura Sullivan, a reporter at NPR, responded to an April 6 tweet from journalist Glenn Greenwald that read: “Twitter founder Jack Dorsey apologized and admitted it was wrong for Twitter to censor every mention of the story. The [Washington Post] this week called for a ‘cashback’ from the media over what they were doing. Apart from those 2, they have kept their lies to this day.’

“Add @NPR to the list,” Sullivan tweeted Thursday. Newsroom editors called it “not a real story.” The investigation into the ‘Hunter Biden laptop’ could end up being a tax case, a mountain of beans or something else. But what it has always been is a story.”

Fox News reported that it’s not the first time Sullivan has called her employer of 18:

In October 2020, when the New York Post originally reported on Hunter’s laptop, NPR was part of the cadre of social media and news organizations ignoring the story.

Responding to the public editor who posted the message to Twitter, Sullivan tweeted on Oct. 23, 2020: “I really love it when managers make our job harder. I don’t know if that’s #HunterBiden’s laptop or what’s on it, but it’s certainly not a waste of time to find out. @NPR executives better hope the laptop is built on an old Russian blender in Ukraine.”

Fox said: “In addition to calling the story a waste of time and distraction in the fall of 2020, NPR also came under fire for falsely claiming in March 2021 that it had been ‘discredited by US intelligence and independent investigations. by news organizations.”
