Director, actor, and longtime Democrat activistic Rob Reiner was incredulous astatine the conception that the media censored sum of the Hunter Biden laptop ungraded successful the run-up to the 2020 election–a information which is nary longer successful dispute.
Reiner’s comments came during a treatment Friday connected HBO’s “Real Time” erstwhile big Bill Maher mentioned the caller contention situation writer Sam Harris’ claims connected a podcast that the media and large tech were justified successful censoring the communicative of Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” during the 2020 predetermination successful bid to halt Donald Trump’s re-election.
“They were talking astir the Hunter Biden laptop which was a story,” Maher said, regarding the Sam Harris podcast conversation. “And present each the mainstream property has present admitted it was a existent story.”
“Look, let’s not pussyfoot astir this,” Maher continued. “[Hunter Biden] was selling the power of his begetter Joe Biden. I mean, astir governmental sons do. Let’s not unreal that that astatine slightest was not going on. I mean, immoderate feline from China gave him—after a dinner—an $80,000 diamond aft dinner.”
“So, Hunter Biden’s laptop was buried by the press,” Maher added. “Even the caput of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, said that was a mistake. They buried the communicative due to the fact that they remembered what happened with James Comey and the missive 11 days earlier the 2016 election. Comey said we gotta reopen this email probe with Hillary Clinton. And it astir apt was—well, she ran a horrible campaign, didn’t spell to Wisconsin, we cognize each of that—but this was astir apt the past happening that sunk her.”
Maher continued, “So Sam Harris says it was due for Twitter and the heads of large tech and the heads of journalistic organizations to consciousness that they were successful the beingness of thing that is simply a once-in-a-lifetime motivation emergency, meaning Trump. So, he’s saying it’s good to person a conspiracy to get escaped of idiosyncratic arsenic atrocious arsenic Trump. It’s a small spot of a thorny question due to the fact that erstwhile you spell down this road—this is benignant of wherever we are successful this country—the different broadside is truthful evil, thing is justified successful preventing them from taking office. Is it?”
Reiner said, “No, you cognize what’s not justified? Using equipped unit to effort to termination radical successful the Capitol. That’s not justified.”
“Was it due to hide the Hunter Biden story?” Maher pressed again.
“Are you talking astir the property doing this?” Reiner asked.
“[Sam Harris] is saying that’s what they did. And this is what they did. They buried the Hunter Biden communicative earlier the predetermination due to the fact that they were like, ‘We can’t hazard having the predetermination thrown to Trump, we’ll archer them aft the election,’” Maher said.
“And we cognize for a information that that’s what they did?” Reiner asked.
“Of course! You don’t travel this?” Maher responded.
“You cognize for a information that’s what they did? I don’t cognize what they did,” Reiner said.
“I cognize due to the fact that you lone ticker MSNBC,” Maher replied, garnering laughter from the audience.
“No, that’s not true. That’s not true,” Reiner insisted.
“Well, past you would cognize astir this,” Maher said.
“I bash cognize astir that! I bash cognize astir that. And I bash ticker Fox,” Reiner insisted. “But the constituent is—we’re going to beryllium present that the property played, you know, tried to–”
“They’re admitting it!” Maher interrupted.
“The property is admitting it?” Reiner asked incredulously.
“Yes, that’s not adjacent an contented anymore!” Maher replied. “They’re saying, yes, we fundamentally did this due to the fact that we didn’t privation this to propulsion the election.”
Indeed, it is present well documented that the media and large tech censored sum of Hunter Biden’s laptop ungraded by falsely labeling it “Russian disinformation” and censoring the sharing of the New York Post nonfiction that archetypal broke the infamous “laptop from hell” story.
Just past week, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg admitted connected Joe Rogan’s podcast that the FBI warned Facebook of an imminent “dump” of “Russian propaganda” soon earlier the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” communicative broke. Though, according to Zuckerberg’s comments, the FBI’s informing to him did not place the New York Post‘s “laptop from hell” communicative specifically, the vague quality of this informing would apt person fixed Facebook and presumably other large tech companies the screen to artifact entree to the Hunter laptop stories connected societal media. This was apt aided by the information that much than 50 erstwhile quality officials–led by Obama-era Director of National Intelligence James Clapper–signed an unfastened missive successful October 2020 alleging that the New York Post’s communicative was “Russian disinformation” adjacent if the laptop’s emails were real.
The Hunter Biden ungraded is present the taxable of a caller communicative film My Son Hunter, which marks Breitbart’s enlargement into movie distribution. It’s the communicative that the constitution media did not privation America to see.
The film’s manager Robert Davi (Licensed to Kill, Die Hard, The Goonies) described My Son Hunter arsenic “the laptop exploded onto film.”
Davi took to Twitter Sunday greeting to respond to Reiner’s ignorance of the media’s relation successful censoring the Biden scandals successful the run-up to the 2020 election.

“I’ve met Rob Reiner a mates of times,” Davi said. “He’s a bully director, a talented gentleman. I similar his enactment arsenic a director. We disagree connected astir issues politically I’m definite and connected immoderate issues vehemently. But what we person to find out—what we person to beryllium accountable for—is uncovering communal crushed successful the truth.”
Davi continued: “We person to admit, Rob, what Bill Maher is saying—that we present know, that the New York Times has said, that the information astir the Hunter Biden laptop has been hidden to sway an election. And you person to admit that, Rob. If we are to lick this country, if we are to bring this state together, you person to admit this benignant of happening due to the fact that that’s terrible, Rob.
