If you needed another example of just how bad and how biased the “mainstream” American media has become on behalf of Democrats, you needn’t look any further than Tony Bobulinski.
Who’s he? Oh, just a former business partner with the family of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden who personally witnessed acts of corruption and the selling of the former vice president’s political clout to potential enemies strictly to enrich themselves.
Now, rational Americans would call that newsworthy. But of course, our national media is not exactly overflowing with ‘rational’ people. Instead, outlets are replete with partisan Democrat propagandists and apologists who believe their duty isn’t to inform the American people and hold the powerful to account, regardless of political party.
As such, none of the major media outlets picked up the truly bombshell revelations Bobulinski revealed Tuesday evening in a lengthy interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson – not a journalist known for spreading fake news.
The dearth of coverage wasn’t lost on fair-minded media experts, some of whom were genuinely amazed that The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, and the broadcast networks ignored what Bobulinski had to say – just days ahead of a general election in which a very compromised Joe Biden could wind up in the Oval Office.
Critics are baffled that the mainstream media has largely ignored Tucker Carlson’s interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden who said the Biden family shrugged off concerns that Joe Biden’s alleged ties to his son’s business deals could put a future presidential campaign at risk – raising questions about whether the “lapdog press” is still worthy of public trust.
Bobulinski, a retired lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, sat down with Carlson for a one-hour interview that aired on Tuesday night. Bobulinski said he raised concerns in 2017 to the former vice president’s brother Jim Biden, about Joe Biden’s alleged ties to a possible joint venture with a Chinese energy firm.
While the mainstream media has scrutinized President Trump and his family members at every turn, there has been a near blackout of coverage of Bobulinski’s shocking claims.
“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.”
He went on to say the typical default is to “assume that the Hunter Biden story, and what Joe’s role might or might not have been, is totally off-limits and not newsworthy,” which isn’t how the press is supposed to operate.
“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,’” McCall said.
Prediction: If Biden does win, suddenly the media will grow an interest in these corruption allegations as a way of forcing him to step down so their real preferred candidate, then-Vice President Kamala Harris, can become ‘the first black woman president.’
