Bump's Back, and Still Peddling the Laptop 'Conspiracy Theory'

In 2021, when media organizations were finally admitting that the laptop was authentic, Bump was still declaring that it was a “conspiracy theory.” Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Bump continued to suggest that “the laptop was seeded by Russian intelligence.”


After Bump had a meltdown in an interview when confronted over past false claims, I wrote a column about the litany of such false claims, including the laptop conspiracy theory. The Post surprised many of us by issuing a statement that they stood by all of Bump’s reporting, including the laptop conspiracy theory. That was in August 2023.

Well, Bump is back.

In his column, Bump takes after various people calling the media to account for burying this story before and after the election, including myself.

How do you self-assess when you cross over from journalist to propagandist? When you refuse to change your story even after evidence shows it's wrong. Bump has made himself into a regime propagandist, and the wonder is why he (and crybully propagandist Taylor Lorenz) still work at the Post. Their recent round of layoffs gave the Post plenty of opportunity to dump both, so they must value propaganda over evidence-supported news.
