NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Jimmy Kimmel's Cuddle with Hunter Biden

April 9th, 2021 5:05 PM

Hunter Biden's softball interview with Jimmy Kimmel is the subject of the latest NewsBusters Podcast. Brian Stelter tweeted on Monday that "This week Hunter has been on CBS, NPR and the BBC, and on Thursday he'll be on Kimmel, but he's avoiding more overtly political and partisan spaces."

He meant Fox News, but he thinks every outlet and program he listed isn't partisan or political. 

As Curtis Houck reported, Kimmel painted Hunter as a sympathetic figure, complaining that Sen. Lindsey Graham attacked him on TV  -- “somebody that you considered to be a family friend.” This led Hunter  to say it was a “sad” example of how “politics has become so toxic.” He also claimed his dad was all about ending that toxicity. Oh, while he knocks Republicans as "Jim Crow" racists? 

The laptop portion was also silly, as Hunter said whether it was his laptop doesn't matter. It's a "red herring" and he's "within my rights to question everything that comes...from the desk of Rudy Giuliani. That desperate spin ignores the actual contents on the laptop.
