NewsBusters Podcast: The Liberal Media’s Crack(pipe) Hunter Coverage

June 21st, 2023 5:11 PM

On this episode of the NewsBusters Podcast, video editing wiz Bill D’Agostino and myself line up and sniff out the liberal media’s crack coverage of Hunter Biden’s plea deal. As loud Italians, we sound off on Hunter getting away with a felony gun charge average Americans would be locked up for given the evidence, and call out CNN for their lazy research into Fox News coverage of Hunter’s scandals.

The weak punishment on the felony gun charge had me particularly hot under the collar as NewsBusters’ resident gun guy. I, along with other law-abiding gun owners take filling out the form and gun safety very seriously, so to see the federal government failing to throw the book at the President’s son tells us what the federal government thinks of its own laws.

We also call out ABC for doing the heavy lifting in terms of protecting the Biden administration and making the Biden family look like the victims. I point specifically to the work of chief White House correspondent Mary Bruce and chief Washington correspondent Jon Karl for downplaying the allegations against the Bidens, while tacitly (sometimes overtly) admitting to dubious behavior.

For those into detailed and embarrassing dressing-downs, Bill expounds on how he and NewsBusters analyst Alex Christy uncovered and disassembled some apparently lazy research from CNN when they tried to mock Fox News for talking about Hunter a lot. Let’s just say people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
