The Media Isn't Just Burying the Hunter Biden Corruption Story. It's Also Burying the Story of Joe Biden's Brother, James Biden, and His Corruption, Too.

Mollie Hemingway spoke about this today.

The media is mostly ignoring that former Vice President Joe Biden’s brother is also involved in a scandal, said Federalist editor Mollie Hemingway.

Hemingway discussed the Biden family's business dealings in Ukraine with "Fox & Friends" hosts Monday. Both Biden's son Hunter Biden and brother James Biden have been involved in shady business dealings, Hemingway said.

...

The Federalist editor pointed out that a July New Yorker profile said a Chinese businessman gave Hunter Biden a diamond gift.

"It's kind of surprising that some of these media figures are so ignorant of these facts or claiming that to talk about these facts is a conspiracy theory," Hemingway said.

"I actually think it's so much worse than just a double standard, which is something that we’ve seen for a long time," Hemingway added. "We actually have a story here where [President] Donald Trump and a few people in the government are trying to get to the bottom of what actually happened in the 2016 election, which involved some meddling from foreign countries -- it involves the weaponization of our law enforcement and intelligence agencies. And as this comes out, they’re trying to... refocus this story in a different direction. And it is not good."

Biden recently threatened CNN and Fox News that they must not run a Trump ad about the Biden family's corruption. CNN complied with the threat, naturally.
The ad is here.

Hemingway had additional thoughts on the media. Via Twitter:

The @chucktodd meltdown is instructional. It is clearly very frustrating for those in the media who are pushing impeachment (after the Russia hoax they pushed for years) that those outside of their bubble are not falling for this latest attempt to undo the 2016 election.

Media/Democrats are struggling to get impeachment going, hoping that (historically feckless, admittedly) GOP pols can be pressured to join. A few barriers: 1) They've not come close to articulating a coherent case for impeachment 2) can't even get an official inquiry launched...

3) GOP voters are already upset that GOP pols were cowards in the face of an obviously false Russia hoax that they allowed Democrats/media to perpetuate for years 4) GOP voters would like action against those who perpetuated the dangerously false smear of treasonous collusion...

5) GOP voters at this point would be ready to utterly destroy any GOP politician who not only did nothing in response to the previous attempts to unseat the Republican president, but followed it up by joining the latest attempt.

She also noted:




Which has been clear for a long time, but which has never been so clear -- they're not hiding their open contempt much any longer.

And might as well link Mollie's appearance on special report from Friday.
