The New York Times has revised its coverage of the New York Post‘s Hunter Biden laptop story to reflect that it is not “unsubstantiated.”

In reporting on Monday about the Federal Election Commission’s (FEC) ruling that Twitter did not make an unlawful campaign contribution to Joe Biden by censoring the story last October, the Times used the “unsubstantiated” descriptor in spite of the wealth of evidence supporting, and dearth of evidence contradicting the Post‘s claims.

Earlier this year, CNN confirmed that authorities believe the laptop — which allegedly contained incriminating sexual content, as well as evidence of a meeting with a Ukrainian energy executive and then vice president Joe Biden — referred to by the Post to be Hunter Biden’s. Moreover, Biden himself has speculated that it was “certainly possible” that it belongs to him.

“There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me,” conceded the president’s son in April.
