POLITICS: When there is scrutiny among the Biden’s, the media gives them a pass



Sometimes a scoop is just a good story.

And sometimes it reveals an agenda. 

The agenda version is front and center with the widespread media pronouncement that the GOP bid to impeach President Biden has stalled. 

Wouldn’t you know it — CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Politico and others on the left all reached exactly the same conclusion at the same time. 

It’s not a coincidence, it’s a conspiracy. 

They think and act the same way because they’re on the same team. 

They’re wrong that the probe is dead, but in saying so prematurely, they reveal their goal. 

From the get-go, they made certain the public would never know the full story of Biden’s involvement in his family’s influence-peddling schemes. 

By ignoring or discrediting enormous amounts of evidence showing the president played a direct role and shared in the booty, they withheld key facts and deprived the probe of the oxygen needed to sustain broad public support. 

They didn’t care about the web of 20 shell companies Hunter Biden, Jim Biden and associates set up to collect suspicious payments from around the world.

Probers found more than $20 million went to the family when Joe was vice president, to which the media handmaidens yawned. 

Despite the courageous testimony of Tony Bobulinski and IRS whistleblowers, and despite Joe’s obvious lie that he never discussed the business with his son, the captured press corps pretends not to notice the corroborating evidence against the “big guy.” 

What about all of Joe’s phone calls into the business meetings?

Does anybody really believe Jim Biden’s checks for $240,000 to Joe were loan repayments? 

If they were, why won’t the White House provide proof? 

The media ignores all this and more for the most disgraceful reason: they don’t want to do anything that would help Donald Trump. 

That’s how much they hate him.

They would rather protect a failing, corrupt president, one compromised by the millions of dollars his family received from China alone, than do anything that might lead to a second Trump presidency. 

And these are the same people who declare Trump a danger to democracy.

Good grief, get a mirror! 

Their protection racket is a break with history and journalism itself.

Not long ago, when prominent media organizations had even a fraction of the documentation amassed against Biden, there was fierce competition to get the big story first. 

Joe’s Watergate 

It happened during the Watergate scandal of Richard Nixon, and again with Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

Both cases featured a race each and every day to see who could advance what the public knew. 

When Trump was the target, the race became so frenetic that innuendo and anonymous allegations replaced facts. 

Russia, Russia, Russia turned America upside down for more than two years, distorted the 2018 midterm elections and earned Pulitzers for the Times and The Washington Post for stories whose key assertions were debunked. 

The same thing happened when Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat House impeached Trump over the Ukrainian phone call.

Never mind that compelling evidence undercut the allegations, Get Trump was the order of the day among Dems and in captured newsrooms. 

Fairly judged, the Russia and Ukraine narratives should be seen for what they were: massive disinformation campaigns that aimed to sway American voters. 

Contrast those precedents with what is happening now.

With Biden on defense, the media are taking the opposite approach. 

Instead of throwing their best reporters into the fray, the big outlets circle the wagons around the president and echo White House talking points. 

They aren’t practicing journalism.

They are doing public relations.

It’s why I call them the Praetorian Guards. 

In hindsight, it is amazing how little original reporting the Times and others have done on Biden’s Watergate.

What stands out is how they have ignored any sign he is guilty and make a huge deal out of claims of his innocence. 

They aren’t even curious about how the Bidens got so rich and what exactly they were selling to foreign powers. 

The current wave of media malpractice became apparent in October of 2020. 

It was late in the presidential campaign when The Post reported on the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

The very first article, on the front page of the Oct. 14th edition, began this way: 

“Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.” 

The story quoted from the email, which said, “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.” 

The story also cited another email on the laptop where a Burisma official asked Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf. 

That pattern, readers would learn, was repeated with wealthy and often corrupt individuals from numerous countries, including Russia. 

Big Tech coverup 

In a sign of how important the story was, Big Tech censored it.

Thanks to Elon Musk and others, we know the FBI played a key role in making sure social media kept the public in the dark. 

Despite Bobulinski’s public verification of the emails his name was on, Biden’s campaign helped organize the misleading letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials saying the laptop had earmarks of Russian disinformation. 

Even then, the FBI had the laptop and secretly verified its authenticity, but the letter has never been recanted. 

The effort recalled the FBI’s role in 2016.

Then it spied on Trump’s campaign and leaked unproven allegations to try to prevent him from becoming president. 

And now, in Trump’s third campaign, the methods and some of the players are different but the goal is the same. 

The Justice Department and like-minded Democrats in Georgia and New York are trying to lock him up.

New York’s rabidly partisan attorney general is trying to bankrupt him and Dems in at least 12 states wanted to ban him from ballots until the Supreme Court intervened. 

Lest voters think picking a president is their right, some congressional Dems are exploring ways to remove Trump if he’s elected. 

Biden himself is no innocent bystander.

He made it clear he wanted Trump prosecuted and Attorney General Merrick Garland shamefully obeyed. 

Meanwhile, Garland did everything he could to keep from prosecuting Hunter Biden and prevented investigators from following the money, lest it incriminate the father. 

In any other era, if you described this fact pattern to even a rookie journalist, the race to get the whole story would begin immediately. 

Yet America’s best and brightest media know those facts and more, yet still look the other way. 

That’s the real scandal.
