According to MSNBC reporter Hallie Jackson, former Vice President Joe Biden is extremely upset that the media is covering his corruption scandal regarding Ukraine. It appears that Biden is not used to being held accountable by the media.
On Friday during her 10:00am ET show, Jackson revealed that Biden’s campaign is “furious” that the “media is even covering” the allegations about his and his sons corrupt business dealings in Ukraine.

MSNBC: Biden ‘Furious’ With ‘Media Even Covering’ Corruption Allegations
During her 10:00 a.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson informed viewers that the Joe Biden’s presidential campaign was “furious” that the “media is even covering” any allegations of corruption against his son Hunter. Later in the day, fellow anchor Andrea Mitchell touted a reporter sympathizing with Biden about the “brutal” campaign.
After noting that “the President is clearly going after Joe Biden” with an ad campaign highlighting Hunter Biden’s suspicious business dealings in Ukraine, Jackson proclaimed: “I know that the Biden campaign is furious with the fact that the media is even covering what the President is saying about Joe Biden at all.” Turning to correspondent Mike Memoli, she wondered: “How are they planning to fight back on all of this?”…
In the noon ET hour, anchor Andrea Mitchell eagerly featured a clip of Biden responding to a softball question about the controversy: “Meanwhile, The Reno Gazette, a reporter there, in Nevada, has asked Joe Biden if he expected the race to be this brutal.” The reporter sympathetically asked: “Did you think it would be this hard or the attacks would be so brutal against Hunter?”
You can’t blame Biden for being upset considering the media has been easy on him for practically his entire political career. Unfortunately for Biden, the House Democrats decided to start an impeachment inquiry about Ukraine into President Trump which has forced the media to report on his corrupt dealings with Ukraine in the past.
President Trump is also unleashing attacks on Biden. On Sunday, the President hammered the former Vice President.
His first tweet started with him hammering the fake news for their efforts to “protect Sleepy Joe Biden and his thrown out of the Military son, Hunter, who was handed $100,000 a month (Plus,Plus) from a Ukrainian based company, even though he had no experience in energy and separately got 1.5 Billion Dollars from China despite no experience and for no apparent reason. There is NO WAY these can be legitimate transactions? As lawyers & others have stated, as President, I have an OBLIGATION to look into possible, or probable, CORRUPTION!”

He continued by highlighting more corruption from the Biden family: “The Biden family was PAID OFF, pure and simple! The fake news must stop making excuses for something that is totally inexcusable. Sleepy Joe said he never spoke to the Ukrainian company, and then the picture came out where he was playing golf with the company boss and Hunter.”
President Trump finished with a bold prediction about Biden’s 2020 nomination: “And by the way, I would LOVE running against 1% Joe Biden – I just don’t think it’s going to happen. Sleepy Joe won’t get to the starting gate, & based on all of the money he & his family probably “extorted,” Joe should hang it up. I wouldn’t want him dealing with China & U!”
