The mainstream media has come under fire for actively working to bury the Joe Biden corruption scandals that have recently surfaced – especially after Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, sat down with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson in a game changing interview where he said the Biden family shrugged off concerns that Joe Biden’s alleged ties to his son’s business deals could put a future presidential campaign at risk.
At this point, the liberal media has essentially become complicit in the Biden family crimes. They have refused to cover many of the recent bombshell stories relating to the Biden family – opting instead to attempt to portray the new info as “Russian disinformation” in an attempt to help Biden and his family get off scotch-free.
Bobulinski’s comments in the Carlson interview in particular were completely ignored by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post.
“It is pretty much a 100 percent blackout of the Bobulinski story in the traditional media. Of course, there are lots of stories that need to be covered in the busy 2020 news agenda, but the total omission of Bobulinski’s accusations is curious, to say the least,” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall said.
“Even if this story is not front and center on the news agenda, it does need to be approached somewhere along the way. Odds are that most mainstream media outlets are devoting very few reporting resources, if any, to the Bobulinski story,” McCall added. “It would seem those outlets could at least be investigating the accusations to try to prove them invalid.”
McCall noted that the typical default has been to “assume that the Hunter Biden story, and what Joe’s role might or might not have been, is totally off limits and not newsworthy,” which isn’t how the press should operate.
“What little coverage has surfaced has basically just been running without challenge the boilerplate denials and indignation from the Biden camp. The manner in which this story has been covered can only be described as the ‘lapdog press,’ as contrasted with the ‘watchdog press,’” McCall said.
Political satirist Tim Young told said it’s astounding the media has ignored the story.
“When you realize that major media organizations such as CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post and the NY Times ran completely unsubstantiated stories like the pee tape from the dossier, Julie Swetnick and Michael Avenatti’s claims against now Justice Kavanaugh, and numerous anonymous senior administration officials statements that ‘would definitely prove the Trump campaign colluded with Russia’ yet haven’t touched direct testimony with direct evidence and easily provable points from Tony Bobulinski after his Tucker Carlson interview, it goes beyond hypocrisy,” he said, “it’s election interference to try to install a potentially seriously corrupt candidate in Joe Biden.”
Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson pointed out that it’s clear the liberal media “thinks this could hurt their preferred candidate” so the story is simply being avoided.
“The easiest way to determine whether ignoring or minimizing the Bobulinski interview and documents reflects media bias is to imagine if something similar happened to Donald Trump. If Bobulinski were blowing the whistle on Trump influence peddling, all the networks and newspapers would be carrying the story nonstop through election day,” Jacobson said.
Media Research Center executive editor Tim Graham added, “The media’s dedication to dragging Biden across the finish line is only growing more intense as Election Day nears. It shouldn’t be surprising they’re going to pretend that anything that reflects badly on Biden isn’t newsworthy.”
