The media outlets which spread this lie from ex-CIA officials never retracted their pre-election falsehoods, ones used by Big Tech to censor reporting on the front-runner.
Not surprising: The CIA wanted Trump OUT, and Biden IN. The USA is a Colony of the CIA. Since decades ago. Who do you think organized the MASSIVE Election Fraud of 2020? Who could have the capabilities and the organization to do it? The CIA are experts in Coup's and in overthrowing governments all around the World: the CIA overthrew 87 governments. This time they overthrew the US government.
By the way: George Bush was dubbed "The CIA Candidate", Bill Clinton was a CIA asset, GW Bush was the son of "The CIA Candidate". Obama was another CIA asset (John Brennan was his handler).
We know from fmr DNI John Ratcliffe that Durham is investigating Joe Biden (and Obama too) https://gregrubini.substack.com/p/durham-ratcliffe-part3 - whether something will come out from his Criminal Investigation, we'll see. However we know that Durham interviewed for 8 hours John Brennan, in Aug 2020 (Brennan was Obama's handler). Ratcliffe gave Durham 1000 classified documents, back in Sept-Oct 2020. Durham is way too slow for my taste, but he's getting close to Jake Sullivan (Biden Nat. Sec. Advisor). Something may be in the offing. An Indictment of Jake Sullivan would be a death blow to the entire Biden Cabal.

Edit to add: isn't it interesting that the Top Names in the "Intelligence Community" disinfo letter linked by Glenn Greenwald are Michael Hayden, John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Morell?
This was the story—or rather the story of the coverup about the story and your decision to walk rather than collude—that cemented my respect for you as a journalist of integrity, Glenn.
Don’t you find it disgusting that the MSM is now admitting to the truths they were responsible for maligning and obscuring on behalf of political and corporate interests—as if they’re trying to reclaim a sliver of their credibility now that it’s “safe” to do so? The NYT “exposing” (the long-known) CDC scientific fraud, the SNL skit mocking the COVID religion, Trevor Noah saying Trump would never have been disrespected like Biden when it comes to foreign relations …
This lockstep pivoting to a more critical stance is highly suspicious, and I can’t tell if it’s to cover their butts as the Big Lies collapse of their own weight and justice is finally served or if they’re priming us for more shenanigans and perhaps a Biden scapegoat ouster.
Isn't this disinformation classed as terrorism in the US now?
The timing of the Times article isn't curious all things considered> Ukraine etc.....apparently 'someone' is trying to get ahead of some revealing bombs dropping on their heads....
We live in a very scary time for the United States, and all of Western Civilization. Here in the US, neither the Russians or Chinese need to work as hard as they probably do to create disinformation campaigns. We have our own media, Big Tech, academia, and of course, the Democratic Party doing it all by themselves. We now exist in a dangerous in-between world situated somewhere between a Constitutionally Limited Republic and Orwell's Oceania. We left the Republic some time ago and we're nearing Orwell's world swiftly. When John Brennan and James Clapper are your go-to guys for 'truth', and when I have to put the world 'truth' in quotes, you know we're in the Bad Days. (that we even tolerate people calling themselves 'fact checkers' is a glaring sign that we've passed a point of no return).
Kudos to you once again, Glenn, for having the bravery and doggedness to pursue actual truth, no matter where it leads. Would that we had young journalists being taught to do that in their 'J' schools as opposed to being taught the greatest good is being an 'activist', - whatever that is. And that the moral cause of the day is more important than the actual truth of the matter.
And what is the moral cause? Well, whatever you want it to be. Whatever the mob decides it to be from minute to minute. One day we're pointing and screaming at people who aren't masked up, like a Donald Sutherland knock-off from "Invasion of the Body Snatchers, then in the snap of fingers, we're pointing out that anyone who questions the moral imperative agreed to regarding Ukraine must be working for the Russians. Yes, point at them and scream. (Don't even worry that the same people who gave us weapons of 'mass destruction' are back for more).
The 2020 election was stolen in many ways, by many people, working on many fronts. Before the election, during the election, and post election (does anybody actually view the out of control riot of January 6 a greater disaster than 9/11?. Talk about moral imperatives!)
But the thing is this: All of this happened in front of us. We all saw it- all of us on the right and on the left. Like a car crash in slow motion, we all watched it. Our brains noted the information. We did not need the New York Times and Facebook to confirm what we saw, what we know. Yet half, or more than half of the country is fine disregarding the evidence of their own senses, to take up the cause for a side- even if that side is lying and they know it's a lie. Remember- this nation believed for years (and many still do) that Trump was in Moscow having Russian prostitutes pissing on him, that Putin has the photos, and that he was compromised. To even write that makes me shake my head in disbelief. But the actual words of Hunter Biden, from his own laptop- no...that was Russian disinformation. The actual words of his partner, Tony Bobulinski, had to be made up.
I read the New York Post articles on Hunter and Joe and James Biden's business dealings. I read Glenn Greenwald back then. I watched Tucker Carlson interview Tony Bobulinski and was aghast that it just sat there by itself. No one commented. No one gave it an ounce of time. Had that been about Trump? Whoo boy! The world would have stopped. And it should have.
We live in an age where The New York Times has proven itself so unreliable for facts, for truth, for reality, that to call it the paper of record is to say to the world that our standards for truth are gone. Done. One would have thought that their throwing in with Stalin while he starved millions of Ukrainians back in the 1930's would have been enough bad rep for one paper- forever. Apparently it takes more than that to kill a lie.
Anybody still think that 81 million people voted for that sack of potatoes we prop up in front of a mic and call our President?
The NYT has forever destroyed their credibility over this single issue. At least The National Enquirer doesn't expect you to actually believe half of their content.
Glenn, your career never depended on what job you had or where you worked. Your career has always depended on your integrity.
And that is why are where you are today - respected and trusted by those with the wit to see who you are. Because you have integrity.
It worked, Biden got elected. Another reason we must be against censorship. We can't have big tech and the security agencies telling us what we can and should read
Why do I get the feeling that the laptop contained information about the actual goings on in Ukraine? Were we to know what was on that laptop, perhaps we would not be marching lockstep into WW3.
Excellent article. Thank you for continuing to do the hard work of reporting the truth. Though many don’t care about it and feed off the MSM many more are waking up. Keep writing. We need you
This crime against the truth and against the people had me cancelling my subscription to The Times, facebook, and instagram. I never used twitter to begin with, and had already switched years ago from google to duck duck go. I stopped using amazon (owner of the WaPo and financed by the CIA) and started shopping brick and mortars again, and began reading the NYPost daily.
Never have I been so disgusted with the confederacy of dunces made up of media, politicians, and operatives in my entire life. The "threat to democracy" the left laments is not a bunch of clowns protesting on January 6th, or piecemeal gerrymandering and the non-existent "voter suppression", it is the contemptible behavior of the left that began in 2016 with Hillary and the DNC, and continued through the blatant and treacherous disinformation dissembled by a corrosive media and culture-making machine (no surprise that obama became a part of Netflix) during the Trump years, and culminating with a total and well orchestrated pack of lies, censorship and news blackouts in the 2020 campaign.
I've never imagined being so demoralized by the institutions I'd embraced and trusted all of my life (though admittedly with a healthy dose of salt and skepticism) as I've become over the last 20 or so years.
Thank you Mr. Greenwald for your continued vigilance.
The mea culpas never come in time. The mea culpas are only done to maintain their thin veil of "credibility".
The lies are seen by billions, the down in a mine shaft corrections though?
Who will be held accountable?
I say it every time. Most people would rather believe a lie they know to be a lie than to hear the truth and be forced to deal with it. Literally the entire mainstream Press is architected to support this. Meanwhile, we're not even allowed to see the Fed for the disaster that it is. The same media is happily propagating the fallacy that it's Putin's fault and ultimately, it's Trump's fault that the price of everything is going up. Yesterday, my mother gleefully declared "I don't believe it's Biden's fault that gas prices are going up." Well of course it isn't. Joe Biden isn't driving this train to hell, he's merely the dumb sonofabitch lashed to the front of it while it plows through whatever remains of our societal decency and integrity. Believe whatever the hell you want, I guess that's the lesson.
The NYT is one of the most destructive forces in American politics. Hard to believe but they still set the agenda for the rest of the MSM. The Times gives permission to the rest of the media to ignore important issues. There is no parity in reporting; what's bad for one side is never reported on the other side. How bad is the Times? Debate any avid Times reader and their ignorance of facts is laughable.
Editorial quibble, Glenn - the NYT "proved" nothing today. They merely "confirmed" what you and many others have been saying for months. Still, nice to see that reality is eventually acknowledged.
