But more work needs to be done. Don't look for any help from media organizations trying to kill the story. But for other, more traditionally open-minded journalists, it's an important job at an important moment. 10/10 End.

It's not fair Hunter Biden email story must be true because it has not been proven false. Rather, job is to try to find what evidence supports it and what does not. Fox News has already made some progress on that front. 9/10

It was the wrong standard to apply to the dossier, to the journalists' everlasting discredit. Now, it is the wrong standard to apply to the Hunter Biden emails. 8/10

On 'Meet the Press,' Chuck Todd to former CIA director John Brennan: 'So far with this dossier, nothing has yet been proven untrue. How significant is that? Brennan: 'Just because they were unverified does not mean they were not true.' 7/10

'Not a single revelation in the Steele dossier has been refuted,' said Feinstein. 'Nothing in the (Trump) dossier... has been shown to be false,' said Tribe. 'The dossier has not been proven false,' said MSNBC's Wallace. 6/10

But think back to dossier. Journalists tried very hard to verify it. So did FBI. They failed. Then Dems, media allies adopted new standard: It must be true because it had not definitively been proven untrue. 5/10

Then journalists could try to verify the story. Some are doing that right now. But many are instead trying to knock it down, suggesting without evidence that it is Russian disinformation, or focusing on staff tiffs at New York Post. 4/10

Now, imagine if Biden campaign took similar approach to Hunter Biden laptop story. They could address a few threshold questions like: Is the laptop Hunter Biden's? Did he drop it off at a repair shop and then fail to retrieve it? 3/10

When Buzzfeed dumped entire dossier on web in January 2017, all could see it was preposterous. But who could say for absolute sure? New book OBSESSION reports Trump transition team's reaction to publication: 2/10

What standard of proof should apply to the Hunter Biden laptop story? GOP, conservatives should avoid falling into a trap--call it the 'can't prove untrue' trap--that Dems, media fell into with dossier. 1/10

What steps has NPR taken to try to verify the emails?

On October 1, 2016, weeks before election, NYT broke a story about Trump's taxes based on 'records obtained by the New York Times.' Reporter said only important issues were whether leaked documents were accurate & newsworthy. Character, motive of leaker unimportant.

Does it matter if the Hunter Biden emails are, you know, true? If they're not true - forgeries - why hasn't Hunter or the Biden campaign said so (which of course they would do). And if they are real, how is that not a legitimate story to report (even if their origins also are?).

This is getting serious. Pro-Biden sources go to the guy who received and publicized the original Michael Flynn leak to mount defense of Joe Biden. Read this carefully and try to decipher the agendas at work.
