Default Here’s How Much Time CNN Spent On The Hunter Biden Scandal

Early in last night's Democrat Presidential nominee debate CNN's Anderson Cooper tossed an ever so gentle softball question to Joe Biden.

Quote:
President Trump has falsely accused your son of doing something wrong while serving on a company board if Ukraine,” CNN host Anderson Cooper began. “I want to point out there’s no evidence of wrongdoing by either one of you. … If it’s not okay for a president’s family to be involved in foreign businesses, why was it okay for your son when you were vice-president?”
Cooper frames the question as if no one besides President Trump is even interested in investigating the Biden's corruption and sets up Biden's defense with the claim they did nothing wrong. It's difficult to imagine a more accommodating inquiry from the supposedly objective moderator. Now we know what Biden meant when he ranted at reporter Matt Lauer to "ask the right question" one which presumes Biden's innocence.

After the gratuitous swipe at President Trump and the declaration of innocence Biden proceeds to simply issue a denial.

Quote:
My son did nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong. I carried out the policy of the United States in rooting out corruption in Ukraine. That’s what we should be focusing on. What I wanted to make a point about — my son’s statement speaks for itself,” Biden responded.
Hunter Biden's statement likewise denied he did anything wrong explaining his receiving $50K per month to sit on the board of a foreign company headed by a pro Russian oligarch while his VP father served as point man for the US in the Ukraine was just an "error in judgement". Of course the contradiction between father and son was never explored.

But Joe Biden wasn't finished lying.

Quote:
My son’s statement speaks for itself. I did my job. I never discussed a single thing with my son about anything having do with Ukraine. No one has indicated I have
Despite the widely circulated photo of the Bidens in a golfing foursome with another member of the foreign company's board the moderators never bothered to challenge Biden's claim. The media accepts Biden's wildly implausible claim on face value so we are obligated to do the same.

The difference in approach to the dirty dossier and Biden influence peddling scandal couldn't be more marked. Trump is obligated to disprove the dossier provided by Russian intelligence and financed by Hillary Clinton's campaign. Biden's angry denials are all that is necessary to excuse his corruption.

And you find this surprising? It is well known that the MSM is in the bag for the left regardless of who from the left is running. This is just another example of their leanings.

No, it's not the least surprising. It is one of many, many examples. Maybe someone in the Resistance will bother to read it or maybe someone wavering on voting for the Democrat nominee will.

So? It's a phony scandal, zero evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter or Joe Biden. It deserves even less time than CNN gave it.

But if we want to talk about that, then we can't ignore the Trump kids and their multiple international business relationships while daddy is president. I mean most Trump supporters do, and they're massive hypocrites for it.

Biden's kids, Trump's kids, Clinton's kid just it's more of the same ol gov't/biz cronyism.
Gov't officials family members making hay from their political connection.
both sides are hypocritical on this issue. (as well as others)
The left has been cryin' bloody murder over members of Trumps family.
But Biden's family well "that's different" that's all "perfectly legal" and "conspiracy theory" to say otherwise. Not even some of the left buy that though.

As with the Clintons, since they've managed to dodge all prosecution then everything is perfectly fine. But Trump and his family havn't been prosecuted on these type of issues either so everything he's done is fine too right?

seems to me both sides are willingly blind to the faults of their own. And dare not admit ANY fault moral or legal... not at least without pointing out "worse" of the other side.
The practice allows the corruption to fester and grow. The politicians of each side play it for all it's worth (it's worth millions) and don't really LEGALLY go after the other side on certain issues.
And the MSM often plays along.

At the 2:58 mark that a look at what one CNN correspondent says OFF AIR about Biden and his Son.
at least they are more honest OFF air than some dem supporters

Hunter Biden receives $50k a month from a Ukrainian gas company at a time when VP daddy is leading US diplomatic efforts in the country. But just like our hideously partisan CNN there is nothing there so move along, mentioning it is forbidden.

What does Hunter Biden do for a living? Why, he is a lobbyist. We are just supposed to "trust" that when he was flying around on AF2 with daddy at taxpayer expense his payoffs from government linked foreign companies never came up? We are supposed to believe the Ukrainian prosecutor looking into the Biden's gravey train was never discussed? We are supposed to believe that after Joe time after time used his position of power to pave the way for Hunter and bail him out of messes he created, this time his threat to withhold US aid unless the prosecutor was fired was purely motivated by a desire to fight corruption.

The same people who screamed for a special counsel to investigate "Russian collusion" with no predicate now insist despite clear circumstantial evidence Biden is innocent. An incurious press accepts his every denial as gospel despite his lies about not knowing about Hunter "monetizing" his office. Worse, by virtue of his candidacy and Democrat affiliation Biden is granted immunity not just from investigation but from any inquiry as well.

It's not surprising to see the attempt to deflect to Orange man bad by braying about Trump's sons. Trump's sons literally grew up in the business, resort and real estate development. They are engaged in actual commerce unlike lobbyist Hunter who only peddles influence with his father.
