Suspicious pre-election to post-election news shift

Well we were told by Trump that the pandemic would disappear from the MSM headlines after the election (not to be confused with his earlier prediction that it would magically disappear).

This was a falsifiable statement that is now demonstrably false. The pandemic coverage is clearly intensifying.

So while I remained hawkish on this issue thanks to the watchdogging by Fox News, a bonafide example of an apparently agenda-driven news item came and went: the Hunter Biden laptop story.

Fox News had no less than a dozen references to this story on their website home page in the week leading up to the election. Today, not one.

So was the right projecting on this weaponized news story issue? If the wet laptop really was the big story of the day, I'd think it would be an even BIGGER scandal now that Biden is President-Elect.
