NBC explains lack of coverage for DOA Biden hard drive story

Jonathan Turley slammed NBC for not properly and adequately covering The New York Post breaking non-story about Hunter Biden’s hard drive before the election.

NBC responded about the matter in great detail.

Bottom line: the proponents of the story, including Rudy Giuliani, Bernard Kerik, and Professor Turley have yet to respond to NBC’s request to produce the hard drive or any of its contents for forensic verification.

No lawyer nor any media consultant with any sanity would counsel an established media organization such as NBC to run a full expose or series of gripping headlined stories on politically volatile claims like the ones tossed around about Biden’s hard drive without being able to inspect the hard drive or to verify its contents.

So the story made its splash and the fateful journey to the sand box of other sensationalized unreported non-stories where it was probably doomed to go from day one when it broke in The Post.
