The New York Times quietly deleted its assertion that an article about Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop and what it revealed about his foreign business dealings was “unsubstantiated.”

The Times reported on a Federal Election Commission decision that dismissed a Republican complaint against Twitter over its censorship of the New York Post’s bombshell Hunter Biden report, which was published in October 2020.

The publication did not include an editor’s note explaining why the change had been made.

Now, the report states: “Twitter decided briefly last fall to block users from posting links to an article about Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son Hunter,” it says.

As several conservatives pointed out, the New York Post’s report on Hunter Biden’s laptop has been substantiated by several other media publications, and Hunter Biden himself has not denied that the report is true.

In fact, he admitted he is under federal investigation for potential tax fraud and money laundering shortly after the report was published.
