He elaborated on this claim during an appearance on the Fox News program "Jesse Watters Primetime." Greenwald told host Jesse Watters: "This was the topic of the single biggest media fraud in the last, I think at least decade, which is right before the election."
According to the Intercept co-founder, any information emerging through the Hunter Biden story is tightly controlled. He explained that the MSM "deploys information to conceal it or divulge it for the interest of their sources inside the Democratic Party and the U.S. security state."
"[Joe] Biden [won] the election because they suppressed that story. Then all of a sudden, they want to start doing reporting on [the elder] Biden as he's getting weak. All of these documents start emerging in the Washington Post and the New York Times, and [MSM outlets] say 'Oh, now we're able to confirm their authenticity." (Related: New York Times quietly admitted that they are fake news, that Hunter's laptop was real and they made up Russian disinformation.)
Greenwald remarked: "The media has already been playing these kinds of very extreme games, with exactly this case, for those kinds of motives."
"Had this only been about corruption by Hunter Biden, it would be an embarrassing scandal. [But] we're clearly talking about protecting Joe Biden as well."
The journalist and lawyer called for an "independent prosecutor who's not beholden to the chain of command" to look into allegations connected with the presidential son's laptop.
Back in March, Greenwald slammed both the Times and the Post for their sudden change of stance with regard to the laptop. The Times confirmed the story's authenticity in a March 16 piece, while the Post followed suit via a March 30 article.
"The [Post's] article – like the one [from the Times] – states over and over [that] they verified the key emails from the Biden archive. Many liberal outlets lied and said these emails were forged by Russia," Greenwald tweeted. He also mentioned how the Intercept's "partisan editors" prevented him from reporting the story.
The co-founder of the Intercept continued that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was responsible for dismissing the emails from Hunter Biden laptop as "Russian disinformation."
"The CIA spread to the media, which repeated it, and then Big Tech censored on the basis of the lie that all these documents were Russian disinformation," Greenwald told Watters.
Greenwald's tweets from March also echoed this sentiment.
He wrote in one tweet: "I don't care that I talk about this a lot [because] it's not talked about enough. The CIA, Big Tech and corporate media all conspired in the weeks before the election to spread a clear lie to manipulate the election – that these emails were forged by Russia. Now 'they ignore the proof.'"
A separate tweet from Greenwald contained a challenge for the MSM.
"Permit me to ask this one question about the U.S. media. Other than that they genuinely see their role as lying for noble ends, what could possibly justify their refusal to retract their CIA lie that the Biden archive was 'Russian disinformation' or at least acknowledge the proof?"
Only the New York Post published multiple articles about the emails from the younger Biden's laptop. It ran stories about Hunter Biden's dealings with Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky and two individuals linked to communist China. Because of this, the Post was temporarily suspended from Twitter in October 2020.
The rest of the MSM outlets, however, dismissed the stories as Russian propaganda and have yet to retract their claims.
