The New York Times removed false claim that Hunter Biden laptop story was ‘unsubstantiated’ from the article
The New York Times as usual runs true to form.
This time the media outlet silently deleted the word “unsubstantiated” from an online article covering a report by New York Post about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The Times also shared the online article with the false claim about the “unsubstantiated” claim on its twitter. But it didn’t last long, not all readers could catch a moment to read it as the hours later, the word “unsubstantiated” was completely removed from the article.
Breaking News: The FEC ruled that Twitter’s decision in October to block an unsubstantiated article about President Biden's son, Hunter Biden, did not violate election laws, according to a document obtained by The New York Times. https://t.co/EzFKKvQ7X2— The New York Times (@nytimes) September 13, 2021
“The Federal Election Commission has dismissed Republican accusations that Twitter violated election laws in October by blocking people from posting links to an unsubstantiated New York Post article about Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son Hunter Biden, in a decision that is likely to set a precedent for future cases involving social media sites and federal campaigns,” the initial Times report said.
However, the editors of the Times lied again and made one more false statement saying that the article was not corrected.

Moreover, the word still can be seen in the outlet’s tweet.
“The ‘unsubstantiated’ Hunter Biden story is true and has since been substantiated. Pretty amazing that nowhere does this NYT article make those facts clear. It just lets the audience believe, misleadingly, that the story was either bogus or a Russian op,” the Daily Caller’s Geoffrey Ingersoll tweeted.
