ABC, CBS, NBC Let Hunter Biden Get Away With Dodging Public Testimony

March 19th, 2024 4:35 PM

Hunter Biden talked a big game about wanting a public testimony but it looks like he’ll be a no show at tomorrow’s scheduled hearing and the broadcast networks are letting him get away with it, as they continue to cover for him and the Biden family business.  

At least Hunter’s longtime business partner Tony Bobulinski is expected to show up and answer questions at Wednesday’s hearing but if recent history suggests don’t expect any bombshells from that testimony to see any airtime on ABC, CBS and NBC. Even a mention of Bobulinski’s testimony would be stunning, given his revelations have been almost completely ignored.

When Hunter delivered his closed-door testimony on February 28 he lied, evaded or contradicted himself on at least five separate occasions. At that time the networks played defense for Team Biden as NewsBusters’ Jorge Bonilla noted: “The network newscasts fell in formation today, focused on protecting the Bidens and disqualifying the proceedings.”

The following are those five instances (via Breitbart) and how they were covered or more precisely not covered on ABC, CBS and NBC’s evening, morning and Sunday roundtable shows: 

1. Hunter Contradicts Himself On Text Sent to Chinese Business Partner

[Hunter] Biden could not recall texting a Chinese business partner in 2017 when he said, “I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled.” However, Hunter said in his deposition that he was certain Joe was not next to him when sending the text.

2. Hunter Contradicts Himself on Message to Business Partners Tony Bobulinski, James Gilliar and Rob Walker 

Biden could not recall sending a message to Tony Bobulinski, James Gilliar, and Rob Walker. Hunter stated in the message that “my chairman gave an emphatic no” regarding Tony Bobulinski’s suggested board structure to the CEFC China Energy Co. deal. However, Hunter did recall that the “chairman” he referenced was CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming.

3. Hunter Stumped On Joe Chairman Biden Claim

[Hunter] Biden claims the “chairman” in the message was not Joe Biden. Hunter could not explain why Rob Walker, his friend and business partner of over two decades, told the inquiry the “chairman” that Hunter referenced was Joe Biden.

4. Hunter Can't Recall Email on 10 Percent for The Big Guy

Biden claimed that he never fully read an email from James Gilliar regarding the equity structure of a joint venture with CEFC in which it was suggested that Hunter Biden hold 10 percent equity for “the big guy.” Nevertheless, Hunter did respond to that email without opposing or questioning the ten percent stake for “the big guy.”

5. Hunter Inadvertently Admits Joe Was The Big Guy

Hunter could not confirm or deny that Joe Biden was “the big guy.” Hunter did, however, deny Joe Biden was slotted for a ten percent cut of the deal. “The agreement, the executed agreement, the executed agreement to create a company that was never operated, that’s what happened. That’s the evidence you have. You have the evidence of the executed agreement between Hudson West Three, me, and Mr. Ye. You have that. Nothing to do with my dad, zero,” Hunter said.

This is just the latest example of network reporters desperately trying to clear these scandals off the table for Team Joe 2024.
