Media critics are totally baffled by the lack of coverage for the Tucker Carlson interview of Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden who stated that the Biden family shrugged off any concerns that the elder Biden’s connections to his son’s business deals might have on future presidential campaigns.
This has led many of these individual critics to wonder if the mainstream media should be trusted at all by those in its viewership.
I can answer that. No, they aren’t worthy of anyone’s trust.
Bobulinski’s comments to Carlson were completely ignored by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post as of 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday, exactly 12 hours after the start of the damning interview.
“It is pretty much a 100 percent blackout of the Bobulinski story in the traditional media. Of course, there are lots of stories that need to be covered in the busy 2020 news agenda, but the total omission of Bobulinski’s accusations is curious, to say the least,” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News.
“Even if this story is not front and center on the news agenda, it does need to be approached somewhere along the way. Odds are that most mainstream media outlets are devoting very few reporting resources, if any, to the Bobulinski story,” McCall added. “It would seem those outlets could at least be investigating the accusations to try to prove them invalid.”
“What little coverage has surfaced has basically just been running without challenge the boilerplate denials and indignation from the Biden camp. The manner in which this story has been covered can only be described as the ‘lapdog press,’ as contrasted with the ‘watchdog press,’” the professor said.
Tim Young, a political satirist, also spoke with Fox News about the lack of coverage for this story.
“When you realize that major media organizations such as CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post and the NY Times ran completely unsubstantiated stories like the pee tape from the dossier, Julie Swetnick and Michael Avenatti’s claims against now Justice Kavanaugh, and numerous anonymous senior administration officials statements that ‘would definitely prove the Trump campaign colluded with Russia’ yet haven’t touched direct testimony with direct evidence and easily provable points from Tony Bobulinski after his Tucker Carlson interview, it goes beyond hypocrisy,” the satirist said, “it’s election interference to try to install a potentially seriously corrupt candidate in Joe Biden.”
A law professor from Cornell, William A. Jacobson, also talked with Fox News and made it clear that the liberal media “this this could hurt their preferred candidate,” and thus, they are opting not to cover it.
“The easiest way to determine whether ignoring or minimizing the Bobulinski interview and documents reflects media bias is to imagine if something similar happened to Donald Trump. If Bobulinski were blowing the whistle on Trump influence peddling, all the networks and newspapers would be carrying the story nonstop through election day,” Jacobson stated.
Of course they don’t want to cover this story. They know the laptop emails and texts, combined with Bobulinski’s claims, would seal the deal for a massive Trump victory on November 3rd.
The mainstream media, which is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party, decided long ago to go to war against Donald Trump. And now, they’ll stop at nothing to see him defeated. Including the suppression of need-to-know information about Joe Biden’s abuse of power to make his son wealthy and keep him out of trouble.
