NBC’s Welker LIES, Says Media Did Not Censor Hunter Biden Laptop Story

News & Politics

During a contentious interview on NBC’s Meet the Depressed with Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), host Kristen Welker went full Regime Media by falsely stating that the media covered Hunter Biden’s laptop during the 2020 election. Shamelessly, and in the face of volumes of evidence to the contrary.

Watch this exchange, which has to be seen to be believed, as it aired on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday. May 19th, 2024:

MARCO RUBIO: What undermines elections is when Meet the– when NBC News and every major news outlet in America in 2020 censored the Biden laptop story which turned out to be true, not Russian misinformation. Unprecedented. Only you couldn’t even talk about it on social media, they would deplatform you. People look at all this. They look at what happened in Arizona. 200,000 ballots that had… 

KRISTEN WELKER: Senator…

RUBIO: …that the signatures didn’t match. People lose confidence…

WELKER: Senator…hold on…

RUBIO: …and it opens the door to this. It does.

WELKER: Senator, I have- I have to jump in here. Senator, you voted to certify the election and, of course, nothing was… 

RUBIO: Because at that stage in the process you have no options.

WELKER: Senator…Senator. You voted to certify the election. Nothing has been censored on this program. Hillary Clinton did concede…

RUBIO: Did you guys cover that laptop for- Joe Biden in 2020? The Biden-

WELKER: Absolutely we covered the laptop…

RUBIO: It was banned, you couldn’t even talk about it in…social media…  

WELKER: …and Hillary Clinton did concede. But bottom line- Chris Krebs, the top election official, said it was…Chris…

RUBIO: You couldn’t talk about it on social media, you’d be deplatformed. You couldn’t even talk about it it because you were called- they said it was Russian disinformation- 

WELKER: Senator- Senator Rubio…

RUBIO: And voters, in many cases, didn’t ever hear about it. 

WELKER: We did…

RUBIO: Because it was blacked out by the media.

In fact, the Hunter Biden laptop story was blacked out by the media. And Rubio was correct in saying that the media’s suppression of the story was critical in voters not even knowing about the Laptop from Hell. An MRC study conducted at the time confirms as much- textbook election interference by the media in conjunction with Big Tech. 

Multiple MRC studies confirmed the media’s ill appetite for the Hunter Biden laptop scandal (see here,and here for a brief sample). We are also reminded that Wekler herself did her level best to steer conversation away from Hunter’s laptop while acting as a presidential debate moderator. She was in on the suppression.

The interview also featured contentious exchanges on abortion, as well as on immigration. Rubio thoroughly schooled Welker on each of the points, exposing her as having nothing once the talking points are exhausted:

The most important here to be observed is Rubio not letting Welker frame a response, and hammering the point on what the failed Senate bill did in terms of expanded asylum as a backdoor to a potential pathway to citizenship. Welker, notably, did not respond to that point.

Whether on abortion, immigration, or election security: the Regime Media may try, but they can’t cover for Biden forever. Welker tried today, and failed.
