Critics have called out the mainstream media for not covering Elon Musk’s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop that leaked information about Twitter censorship just weeks before the 2020 presidential election.
ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN’s main Sunday shows devoted a total of seven seconds to the story, prompting Twitter CEO Elon Musk to call for silence.
“I think these people need to look in the mirror and wonder why they’re being conned. Why are they deceiving the American public?” Musk asked. “And instead of pointing the blame at Matt Taibbi, they should take some responsibility themselves for not being truthful with the American public.”

Fox News reporter Joe Concha said that all news outlets should want to cover the story in a transparent manner to preserve American democracy.

“This is one of the most egregious examples of the industry doing something that’s completely wrong and unethical that we’ve ever seen,” Concha said on “Fox & Friends First” on Monday.

“Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy called the censorship approval a “smoking gun,” agreeing that some Americans might have voted differently if the media had reported the Hunter Biden laptop story in full.
“Did it change the outcome of the election? We don’t know for sure, but we do know that the polls showed that people knew about the Hunter Biden story and how Joe Biden was involved or not. Ultimately, and the Biden family, it was their vote. ‘could make a difference,” Ducey said.
Doocy said the mainstream media doesn’t really care about Hunter Biden. Their goal, on the contrary, was to do everything to get Joe Biden into the White House.
Co-author Ainsley Ehrhardt added that the media is currently not covering Elon Musk’s “Twitter files” because they want to keep the story under wraps.

Concha said the liberal media is doing a disservice by ignoring the news that the Hunter Biden story was censored and the potential implications of President Biden’s involvement.
“They are failing the American people,” Concha said.
