We’re looking at some crazy stuff right here, people.
Not only is the leftist mainstream media searching for any damn impeachable offense they can dream up, they’re completely ignoring anything the Bidens have done in Ukraine, legitimate or illegitimate, proven or unproven. And, of course, with renewed fervor after the whole Russia scam didn’t pan out, they’re out for blood.
In an especially startling, totalitarian move, presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s campaign actually contacted the heads at every mainstream media network to demand that they no longer host Rudy Giuliani. Because stifling the free press, however fickle it may be, is always a solid move if you’re looking to set up a dictatorship.
According to the New York Times, Biden’s campaign contacted executives at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and Fox News on Sunday with their demands.
“We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” the letter stated. “Giving Rudy Giuliani valuable time on your air to push these lies in the first place is a disservice to your audience and a disservice to journalism.”
“While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough,” the letter continued, basically declaring that it’s not enough for Giuliani’s statements to be factual. Because, you know, we care about truth, not facts.
“By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation,” the letter continued. “We write to demand that in service to the facts, you no longer book Rudy Giuliani, a surrogate for Donald Trump.”
Giuliani got a hold of the letter and tweeted a copy of it just after the Times story broke, saying “The Bidens are clearly rattled by the affidavit showing there is a named accuser and not an anonymous source, who is ready to testify! Reminds me of the reaction to the corrupt pols of the 70’s and 80’s. They have their Dem media trying to destroy my reputation and silence me!”

Actor Adam Baldwin, whose take on the issue is likely a little different than his Trump-mocking brother Alec:
As if Team Trump hasn’t read and is readying the declassification and release of Biden’s Ukraine & China communications… 😂https://t.co/CNCvnc8TiE

Even ultra-lefty CNN commentator Bakari Sellers:
This is a horrible idea and tactic by Biden camp. Giuliani is horrible but this ain’t it. https://t.co/2RlIOyvrRY

Something tells me this isn’t going to end well for Biden.
Although, with Elizabeth Warren being the next runner up, it may not end well for us either.
