Journalists like Anne Applebaum at The Atlantic are still pretending the laptop has no relevance, while others, such as CNN’s Brian Stelter, deny that the media ever even suggested it was Russian disinformation.
If you’re curious about the media establishment’s mindset right now, The Atlantic’s recent conference on disinformation should tell you all you need to know. Imagine the sheer audacity of these journalists, to host such an event so soon after being exposed in the biggest media coverup in recent memory.
They’re not sorry. They’re not even ashamed. By all means, enjoy the embarrassment while it lasts, but don’t accept their excuses and non-apologies. Don’t let them live this one down.
