The Biden Scandals the Mainstream Won’t Tell You About
Not surprisingly, CNN and other so-called “mainstream media” turn a blind eye to scandals when they concern Democrats, especially when they involve President Joe Biden.
CNN and their ilk love to attack “election deniers” ad infinitum, but when it comes to the Bidens, they are the “scandal deniers.” Case in point, the left-wing media champions of the Pelosi-picked January 6 panel, are now scolding Republicans that they shouldn’t waste everyone’s time and money with hearings relating to the Biden family scandals.
Four years ago, Axios was touting “Democratic hit list: At least 85 Trump investigation targets.” Politico ran a piece titled “How to Flood the Trump Administration With Investigations.”
Now, Axios is warning, “Biden-district Republicans brush off impeachment talk.” Politico, another left-leaning outlet, is also putting on the brakes, “The latest victim from House GOP’s election night: impeachment.”
Even the supposedly non-biased Associated Press put out a story with the headline slamming the idea of an investigation into Hunter Biden: “House GOP pushes Hunter Biden probe despite thin majority.”
Could you imagine or remember ever seeing an AP headline that read, “House Democrats push January 6 probe despite thin majority”? Democrats are always justified, according to the lamestream media!
The AP describes itself as “an independent global news organization dedicated to factual reporting.” Wrong. Seems to me with headlines like this, they are just another part of the Democrat-dependent media dedicated to pushing the left-wing narrative.
All of this underlines the greatest hypocrisy of the left-leaning press. When Republicans are in the White House, they insist it’s their eternally solemn and noble duty to “hold them accountable” with energetic scandal stories. They don’t wait for congressional Democrats to pounce. They do their own pouncing — or they coordinate it with Democrats, thinly disguised as anonymous “senior officials.”
But when Democrats are in the White House, journalists seem more eager to scold the Republicans for wasting everyone’s time and demand we all forget about accountability.
Their so-called noble duty instead becomes to build a defensive perimeter around the White House instead of investigating it. They don’t do the people’s business. They do the Democratic Party’s business.
