Media Research Center Founder and President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox Business on Monday and demanded that journalists do their jobs and investigate the “brazen” “corruption” of the Biden family. Talking to Varney and Co. guest host Ashley Webster, Bozell insisted, “The media really needs to investigate what's going on with this family that they are so brazen in this kind of corruption. I've never seen anything like it.”
Bozell was reacting to the news that “artist” Hunter Biden may be selling his paintings for as much as $500,000 and will be meeting with potential buyers. Regarding the scant media coverage, the MRC President condemned, “I am in disbelief over not just the magnitude, but the sheer brazenness of both Hunter Biden and his father when it comes to scandals.”
Bozell also discussed Facebook, yet again, getting caught censoring: “Facebook is a mess. They don't know what to do next. They keep getting caught censoring conservatives. Now you find out they are working with the Biden administration.”

ASHLEY WEBSTER: Let's look at this if we can. A CNN panel agreeing that Hunter Biden art sales are a problem for the White House. Roll the clip.
[Clip from CNN.]
WEBSTER: I find it hard to believe they agree it’s an ethics problem. Let’s bring in Brent Bozell. Brent, good morning. Look, even the left has issues with these art sales. What do you say?
BRENT BOZELL: Well, credit to CNN for doing that piece and they were very hard-hitting too. Credit to CBS and ABC each doing a report, a mild report. But you know, Ashley, they are not coming anywhere near the focus that this story needs to have. I am— I am in disbelief over, not just the magnitude, but the sheer brazenness of both Hunter Biden and his father where it comes to scandals. You have Burisma with $50,000 going to buy access with his father, the Vice President. Go ahead, Mr. President. Go ahead, Hunter Biden. Sue me if you would like. And then you have going into the laptop with Hunter Biden is setting or trying to set up this secret company — or trying to — with the Chinese to buy access with his father with 10 percent of the company going to his father. Go ahead Mr. President, go ahead Hunter Biden, sue me for defamation on that one.
And now you have got this art sale where suddenly Hunter Biden has become an artist and suddenly he selling this for $500,000 and then, and then, and then they insist to the public that it's an undisclosed buyer and now, we find out he's meeting with the guy or whoever it is. Now to be serious, Ashley. The media really needs to investigate what's going on with this family that they are so brazen in this kind of corruption. I've never seen anything like it.
WEBSTER: Day after day Donald Trump was, you know, assailed to using his position to profit. It was a day in and day out but silence for the most part on this. But anyway, Brent, I want to move on. A new report says Facebook will now allow users to post the phrase “Death to Khamenei” and this, of course, is amidst protest in Iran. But why does Facebook need to be pressured into allowing free speech is my question to you.
BOZELL; Facebook is a mess. They don't know what to do next. They keep getting caught censoring conservatives. Now you find out they are working with the Biden administration to censor anyone who questions the vaccine. You are talking about tens of millions of people. As I have been saying this is not just a speech control. It's a thought control. Now, they do that, but then they turn around overseas and do something completely different in Iran. You know, if it were just to get out of the censorship business altogether, just get out of that business altogether. Let the public decide what to do on this except for egregious felonies, obviously, but get out of that business. They wouldn't be on the front page.
WEBSTER: Absolutely. Brent, as always great stuff. I wish we had longer, but thanks for joining us with your thoughts.
