"That story was brute censored from the internet," he said. "It is really extraordinary, the level of lying and deceit and manipulation on the part of a union of the corporate media, big tech, the Democratic Party, and the intelligence community to manipulate the 2020 election by, at first, lying about, and then overtly censoring from the internet any discussion of a major story that was broken by the New York Post weeks before the election."
"There was enormous amounts of the same kind of confirmation early on, but they were ignored because they were coming from right-wing outlets, but now we have a mainstream reporter proving that the key emails were authentic all along. They were never disinformation or forgeries."
"This was a very close election, 60,000 votes in a couple of states could have swung the election from Biden to Trump. Who knows how many people were denied hearing about this reporting as a result of the outright lies told by the CIA and corporate media."
"It was taken from authentic documents taken from the laptop of Hunter Biden that raise serious questions about Joe Biden. That story was censored by Twitter and Facebook and was essentially buried and lied about by the corporate media using the CIA as the excuse to lie. And we now have even more definitive proof than we ever have before about what a gave assault this was on our democracy and what an extreme example of journalistic corruption."
"It's worth it to spend the time to remember what happened here, especially in light of this new evidence."
The reality is that -- *from the start* -- there was ample evidence proving these documents were real, and that the CIA was lying. But the evidence came from right-wing outlets so the NYT, CNN and friends ignored it. The evidence this new book provides leaves no doubt about it: pic.twitter.com/fGAJeJot0n— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 22, 2021
A key point: the same media outlets that spread the CIA lies that this was "Russian disinformation" -- all to protect Biden -- are the same ones now who insist they *combat* disinformation and need to censor the internet to protect you from it. Look at what slimy frauds they are: pic.twitter.com/ElyIX8z4bB— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 22, 2021
The huge irony here is even the ex-CIA operatives -- led by Brennan and Clapper -- *admitted* they had no evidence to believe this came from Russia or was fake. Yet none of the outlets that spread their lies -- CNN, NBC, HuffPost, The Intercept -- will mention all this new proof: pic.twitter.com/epWPuwoKYD— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 22, 2021
I realize our new video report is longer than most. An hour in length, it's a mini-documentary, but I hope you'll watch because this episode is so grave: CIA lies were used by corporate media & Big Tech to censor pre-election reporting off the internet:https://t.co/fdcqV01D3Y— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 22, 2021
