SCOTT DREYER: Headline Round-up

As reported in The Roanoke Star yesterday, it only took major news outlets like The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN and many others about a year and a half to realize and admit that the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” scandal is not “Russian misinformation” or a part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” but actually is real. Evidently, someone recently managed to repair the telegraph wires connecting the NYT, WaPo, and CNN to Delaware where the story broke.

At the rate we’re going, the Washington Post should be able to correct its misleading story about all 133 Virginia school superintendents disagreeing with Governor Youngkin by around Christmas…of 2023.

In fact, in our ever-changing world where global communication is instantaneous and some struggle to separate fact from fiction, as a public service, here is an end-of-the week round-up of some of the headlines and lead stories as reported by some of our beloved and universally-trusted media outlets and opinion-shapers. Certainly, no one wants to start a new month uniformed or behind the times.
