The Daily Beast has apologized to the Delaware computer mechanic who acquired Hunter Biden’s laptop after falsely claiming in a previous story that the computer was “stolen”.
The apology to John Paul Mac Isaac appeared in an editor’s note Wednesday that accompanied a Daily Beast story published in December 2020 that claimed the laptop was stolen, Fox News reported.
“In an earlier version of this story, Hunter Biden’s laptop was incorrectly labeled as ‘stolen.’ We have removed that word and apologize to Mr. Mac Isaac for the mistake,” reads the editor’s note.
Isaac, 45, was left with the infamous laptop after Hunter Biden abandoned it at his shop in 2019. The mechanic came to legally own the laptop after the president’s son failed to ever pick it up.
In October 2020, The Post reported that the device contained a treasure trove of emails detailing how Hunter Biden used his political clout in his shady foreign deals.
The Daily Beast’s apology to Isaac came after the handyman earlier this month, along with CNN, Politico and Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, filed a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit against the publication of his business.
It wasn’t immediately clear if The Daily Beast’s apology was linked to a deal involving the suit.
