During the 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden got an assist from the mainstream media which worked overtime to dismiss the Hunter Biden laptop story as Russian disinformation. Twitter went so far as to suspend the New York Post’s account for reporting on it.
Here we go again. Even as reports surface the FBI has gathered enough evidence to charge Hunter with tax and gun-violation charges – media silence.
Former Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about the new evidence as part of her new stint at NBC. She claimed that her Internet search of the front pages of major local newspapers showed no interest in the story. In explaining it was still an “Inside the Beltway” story, Psaki said, “There was so much news happening in Washington this week, it doesn’t always translate and often doesn’t translate to what voters are talking about in states.” Her argument seems to be that this story wasn’t newsworthy because…the media didn’t cover the story. Meanwhile, the Jan. 6 “insurrection” story has been on the front pages for months.
