Earlier this month, a computer repairman who came into possession of Hunter Biden’s laptop after the son of President Biden left it unclaimed at his shop filed defamation lawsuits against the Daily Beast, CNN, Politico and Rep. Adam Schiff for falsely referring to him as a hacker and “Russian asset”:
Isaac is seeking at least $1 million in damages after losing his business and being harassed for 18 months, forcing him into exile in Colorado. “After fighting to reveal the truth, all I want now is for the rest of the country to know that there was a collective and orchestrated effort by social and mainstream media to block a real story with real consequences for the nation,” he told The New York Post.
Biden’s laptop was allegedly dropped off at Isaac’s store in April of 2019 and was never picked up. Isaac claims he contacted authorities after finding emails on the computer that suggested then Vice President Joe Biden had met with Vadym Pozharskyi, advisor to Burisma, on the board which Hunter Biden served.
It didn’t take long for the Daily Beast slightly update one of their articles:

This “editor’s note” now appears at the end of the Daily Beast’s December 2020 article:
Editor’s note: an earlier version of this story mistakenly referred to Hunter Biden’s laptop as “stolen.” We have removed that word, and we apologize to Mr. Mac Isaac for the error.
“Mistakenly”? When all these media “mistakes” only fall in one direction they’re anything but honest errors.
A day late and a lawsuit short.

And yet the media will continue to make these “mistakes” over and over again.
Glenn Greenwald sets his sights on Guardians of Truth who buried Hunter Biden stories — and takes no prisoners
So weird! Daily Beast’s Sam Stein finds it notable that investigation into Hunter Biden ‘went largely unnoticed’ by the MSM before the election
