I think you are misinterpreting my use of the word "admitted". Here's a clip from the reason.com article in my OP:
Similarly, I can say when I was 10 years old that I was skeptical of life elsewhere in the universe, but now at age 60 after considering it more thoroughly, I admit now that I do believe it to be true. It doesn't necessarily mean I knew it to be true all along. Perhaps I could have used a better choice of words. I never intended to claim that they knew it to be true, but were hiding it.While the Times did not ignore the story, the paper's coverage treated it with skepticism and disdain.
And they were correct to treat it skeptically, as it was unproven. Weird to criticize them for doing their literal job.
I also never claimed the NYT said it was Russian disinformation. Here's another clip from the reason.com article I posted above:
What I said was, in my own words:Pro-Biden, anti-Trump journalists, including several at the Times, portrayed the Post's story as unsubstantiated at best. Politico reported that "more than 50 former senior intelligence officials" believed the emails had "all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation."
"By many", I meant people on this forum as well as in the general public, not necessarily the NYT.The prevailing theory back in 2020 by many was that the laptop contents did not originate from Hunter, but were Russian fabricated disinformation.
So, no crow tonight (not that I haven't had my share over the years). I do believe I will head to Lucky's soon and get me a rotissiere chicken (Lemon Pepper spice). though. And some potato salad.
Nice to see you admit now that the NYT did not say it was Russian disinformation. Even though NYT is the only media you mentioned.
But again, it was all speculation either way. Nobody knew. People that believed that they were real emails were just as unfounded in their belief. So what if someone believed they were fake? It doesn't take TDS to think Giuliani was spouting fake news.
