Media Execs Rationalize Burying Biden Laptop Story: ‘He Was Never Arrested’

  • The former heads of CNN and MSNBC tried to rationalize their decision to bury the story on Hunter Biden’s laptop in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election.
  • “He was never arrested,” said former MSNBC president Phil Griffin.
  • Zucker claimed “we did deal with it,” but claimed, “We did not know enough about it.”
  • Zucker demanded that moderator Michael Smerconish, a CNN host, answer whether he had been directed not to report on the story. Smerconish responded: “I think that we looked partisan by not giving it some air.” Zucker acknowledged, “I don’t disagree with that.”
