NewsBusters Podcast: Hundreds of Minutes of Trump Obsession, Zero Seconds for Biden

March 31st, 2023 10:50 PM

Donald Trump's prediction has achieved accuracy. He has been indicted by a grand jury in Manhattan. A new study by director of media analysis Geoffrey Dickens for NewsBusters found there were 273 minutes of air time devoted to Trump probes on ABC, CBS, and NBC in the last two weeks, since Trump predicted his own arrest. But these three networks devoted exactly zero seconds to Biden scandal developments coming out of the Republican-controlled House Oversight Committee.

Late-night comedians and their guests compared Trump to killers like Al Capone and Ted Bundy.  Liberal historian Douglas Brinkley chose instead Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth.There's no sense of fairness or balance when it comes to Trump.

Dickens joins the show to explain the media's "perfect" score of ignorance on Biden. They couldn't even manage 30 minutes on Biden, or ten. A series of scoops -- including one about Hunter Biden having an FBI mole nicknamed "One Eye" who tipped off his Chinese paymasters -- were somehow not juicy enough for pro-Biden journalists. The bias by omission is intense. It never breaks. The Chinese were sending money not just to Hunter, but to the president's brother James, and even $35,000 to Hallie Biden, the widow of Beau Biden who later had an adulterous relationship with Hunter.
