How far will the New York Times go in its attempt to clean up the messy story about Hunter Biden’s laptop?
To get in front of the real story, agencies like the Times usually put out their own narrative and that is what just happened.
The NYT just dropped a story, “Republicans pounce,” trying to frame the news as the GOP using whatever they can to fan the flame of questions around the Biden family business. The moral of this story is that since the Democrats lost some power, investigations are now bad.
The Times wrote that in their reporting the crimes that the DOJ is looking to charge Hunter with are “far removed from the ones most aggressively promoted by Republicans.”
They referred to the congressional hearings as “hostile,” and the articles use statements like, “The way Republicans tell it, President Biden has been complicit in a long-running scheme to profit from his position in public life through shady dealings around the world engineered by his son, Hunter Biden.”
What do you mean, “The way that they tell it?” That is the way that it is. I guess we should all just take the president’s word for it and move on.
If we follow Time’s logic, Hunter probably did commit crimes, but come on, he was a drug-induced loser that also lost his brother. That’s why he made millions through foreign connections using his father’s position as leverage.
There are words from the NYT, “And after the death of his brother, Beau, in 2015, Hunter descended into a spiral of addiction and tawdry and self-destructive behavior. He is sober now and no longer entangled in foreign business deals.”
No real harm, no real foul.
Are you kidding me? Again, let me ask, how far with the liberal media go to sanitize this story?
In our reporting we found that the crimes that DOJ is considering charging Hunter with are far removed from the ones most aggressively promoted by Republicans. https://t.co/aXGO8rSowK
