CNN Is Promoting Journalist Who Wrote Story About Intel Officials Claiming Hunter Biden Laptop Was Russian Disinfo

by Mike LaChance at

CNN is promoting the journalist Natasha Bertrand, who wrote the 2020 Politico report on intel officials who called the Hunter Biden laptop Russian disinformation.

In other words, instead of paying a price for pushing disinformation, she is being rewarded for it.

This is a perfect example of why so many Americans no longer trust the news media.

From CNN:

Natasha Bertrand promoted to CNN Correspondent

CNN’s Natasha Bertrand has been promoted to correspondent covering national security, the news organization announced today. She is based in Washington, DC and will continue to focus on national security and politics across CNN’s platforms

Bertrand’s robust coverage remains an integral part of CNN’s national security and political newsgathering operation, breaking a variety of stories including the widespread use of dumb bombs by Israel in Gaza and the extent of secrecy surrounding Secretary Austin’s hospitalization. Bertrand also played a vital role on the team that broke the story of the missing Russian intelligence binder under former President Donald Trump, and was part of the team that won an Emmy for coverage of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine where she was reporting on the ground from NATO.
