In under two minutes, Dan Schmidt, a freshman student at the University of Chicago, laid bare why so many Americans despise leftist “journalists” like Anne Applebaum of The Atlantic.

The freshman, who attended the “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” conference yesterday at the University of Chicago about bias in the media industry, bravely faced one of the most dishonest “reporters” in the business to ask her why they refused to cover the bombshell story about the discovery of Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell in 2020 before the election?

“Now, of course, we know a few weeks ago, The New York Times confirmed that the content is real,” the freshman said. He asked, “Do you think the media acted inappropriately when they instantly dismissed Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation, and what can be learned from that in ensuring that what we label as disinformation is truly disinformation and not reality?” The arrogant Applebaum responded, “My problem with Hunter Bidens’ laptop is that it, I think it is totally irrelevant. I mean, it’s not whether it’s disinformation, or I mean—I don’t think that Hunter Biden’s business relationships have anything to do with who should be President of the United States. I mean—I don’t find it to be interesting. That would be my problem as a major news story,” she told him.

David Axelrod, who appeared to panic, ended the questions from students, telling them, “I think we have run out of time.”

And people wonder why Americans don’t trust the “media?” It’s people like Ann Applebaum who give the rest of us who are fighting to expose the truth, a bad name.
