It’s no secret that the mainstream media have protected Hunter Biden from scrutiny for years to avoid hurting his father, President Joe Biden. But now, the proverbial cat is out of the bag, and it’s making the media look even worse.
An IRS whistleblower has alleged that politics and preferential treatment have interfered with the five-year Hunter Biden investigation. Meanwhile, the president’s spokesman, Ian Sams, insists that the DOJ has complete independence and that the investigation is “free from any political interference.”
The media’s coverage of this story has been lackluster at best, with some outlets not even mentioning Hunter Biden in their headlines. NBC gave it only 36 seconds, and ABC tried to downplay it. Even The Washington Post has struggled to cover the story, taking the stance that Hunter’s involvement in his father’s campaign is a good thing.
It’s clear that the media’s agenda has been to protect the Bidens, and it’s not just their reporting on this issue that is the problem. The media’s hypocrisy in attacking Republicans while giving Democrats a pass has been going on for years.
The media is supposed to be unbiased, but when it comes to Democrats, they will do whatever it takes to keep them in power. The story of Hunter Biden’s scandalous behavior is just the latest example of their double standards.
It’s a shame that the media cannot be trusted to report fairly on all politicians. The American people deserve better, and it’s time for the media to stop playing politics and start doing their job.
