His feud with Journalist Glenn Greenwald

To end his article was the “conspiracy theory” about young Biden’s laptop that emerged almost a year ago, which was declared by many outlets as “Russian disinformation” despite any evidence and New York Post report suppressed by Big Tech.
When Bump’s article caught the attention of Greenwald, an outspoken critic of the media, particularly in his handling of the Hunter Biden story. Greenwald Tweeted:
“WPost ‘fact checker’ @pbump (referring to Philip Bmp) continues to classify the Biden laptop as a ‘conspiracy theory’ even after a new book from POLITICO’s @SchreckReports (referring to Ben Schreckinger) proves key emails are real,” Greenwald reacted. “The real ‘conspiracy theory’ is the lie of the media and the CIA that it was ‘Russian disinformation'”.
Greenwald continued: “All this ‘fact check’ reads like a DNC press release. Much like the ‘anti-disinformation’ industry, this new ‘fact checker’ media headline is a huge fraud, designed to disguise liberal media activism as something higher, noble, and trustworthy, neutral or whatever.
Bump responded, telling Greenwald: “I am not a fact-checker and the point of the article is precisely that the validity of the emails is irrelevant, but otherwise good.”
To which Greenwald replied: “The mainstream media claim, copied from the CIA, was that the laptop was Russian ** disinformation **. It is to protect the conspiracy theories of the liberal media, not to discredit them.”
