By Daily Wire. NPR admitted to making a major error in its coverage of Hunter Biden on Thursday, walking back a claim that news reports of information found on Biden’s alleged laptop were “discredited.”
The outlet, which is funded by taxpayer money, issued a correction to a March 31 review of Biden’s new memoir, “Beautiful Things.” The story originally claimed that news reports citing information found on a laptop Biden had allegedly dropped off at a Delaware computer store in 2019 were “discredited” by news outlets and experts.
“A previous version of this story said U.S. intelligence had discredited the laptop story. U.S. intelligence officials have not made a statement to that effect,” the correction says.
The outlet also edited a paragraph in the middle of the review on Rudy Giuliani, former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, and his attempts to spotlight Biden’s history of drug abuse and questionable overseas business dealings.
