As Hunter Biden is tried on gun charges in Delaware, MRC Director of Media Analyisis Geoffrey Dickens joins the show to remind us how scoops about the Bidens (Joe, Hunter, Uncle Jim) in the New York Post and Politico are persistently ignored by ABC, CBS, and NBC.

Perhaps the most brazen omission in the last few months is ignoring that the House Republicans charged that Hunter Biden lied to Congress under oath at least three times during his testimony back on February 28. At the time, reporters underlined the view that the House Republican investigation was a ‘sham’ and that Hunter got the best of the Republicans that day. So omitting the GOP belief that the president’s son lied under oath was predictably buried. 

Other stories with juicy details were left on the cutting-room floor. Politico reported that the president’s brother James Biden was cutting deals with businessmen in Qatar, the Mideast country that’s presently hosting the leaders of the terrorist group Hamas. How many Americans know who James Biden is? People who watch network news to stay informed would be clueless. 

We learned that in 2021, the CIA blocked federal investigators from interviewing Hunter Biden’s “sugar brother” Kevin Morris, according to IRS whistleblowers. Morris’s daughter is now complaining publicly about Hunter Biden taking all of her father’s money.

In 2017, Hunter Biden used his dad’s appearance at a Sandy Hook school-shooting memorial event to coordinate a previously unknown meeting between the former vice president and a Chinese business partner, newly unveiled texts showed. No matter how embarrassing these stories could have been, the networks steered clear of them. Time after time, they drew ZERO seconds.
