Lefty ‘philosopher’ Sam Harris, who previously admitted he supported the suppression of reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop immediately prior to the election, has now claimed that the New York Post’s reporting on the story was accurate only “by accident.”
Speaking with Bill Maher on his podcast, Harris declared that the reaction to him saying he wouldn’t have cared if Hunter Biden had corpses of children in his basement was “right wing lunacy,” and that it “kind of distorted my position.”
Harris further declared that “the velocity of the hatred was something new,” and claimed that “it was completely plausible to worry that this was a fake story… there simply wasn’t enough time to get to the bottom of it.”
Maher challenged him on the suppression of the laptop story, noting “Well then why did the outlets that did get to the bottom of it, get to it? The New York Post had no problem getting to the bottom of it.”
Harris replied, “They wanted to believe it and yes, you know, sometimes you’re right by accident.”
Maher responded, “Can I go to step two of what the two reasonable people in the room would agree on. One, they’d agree it was kind of suppressed. Two, they’d agree that Hunter Biden, being the son of the current Vice President, and being a complete douchebag, was ripe to be used as a conduit to his father, through which he was, but nothing really. It was kind of sort of everyday graft, that’s sleazy, but doesn’t affect the world.”
“It’s possible we still don’t know, right,” Harris replied, adding “I’ll give some credence to the possibility that it’s worse than I understand. But the problem is ten days is not enough to figure that out and we knew that it was going to rail the issue.”
Harris then attempted to steer the conversation to Trump and his administration being more corrupt than Biden.
The New York Post story on the Hunter Biden laptop was censored on Twitter and other platforms and labelled ‘Russian disinformation‘ in a chilling example of election meddling fewer than 3 weeks before the vote that saw Biden take the White House.
It has since been proven that the story is completely accurate, with journalists such as Glenn Greenwald describing the cover up as “the single biggest media fraud” in the past decade.
Harris put himself in the spotlight again this week by criticising Elon Musk’s attempts to restore free speech on Twitter:
