America’s biggest liberal news outlets have avoided reporting on the latest Hunter Biden scandal, amid claims he inadvertently used his father’s credit card to accidentally overpay an escort $25,000.
The United States’ most popular left-leaning publications and news networks – including The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC – have made no mention of the story in the 36 hours since it was broken by the Post, and confirmed by DailyMail.com
On Wednesday evening, CNN host Jake Tapper did mention Hunter on his show – but only while discussing the president’s son’s paintings with Republican writer Kristin Soltis Anderson.
Soltis Anderson blasted Biden for cashing in on his dad’s name, and selling his artworks to anonymous buyers. But no mention was made of Biden’s alleged overpayments to the sex worker with his dad’s plastic.
This isn’t the first time mainstream media outlets ignored controversy surrounding the president’s son. They previously blanked a June 7 DailyMail.com exclusive about Hunter using the n-word, and have faced hypocrisy claims after running multiple stories on the alleged wrongdoing of Donald Trump’s children while he was president.
When the n-word story broke, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted that coverage would have looked far different if it involved someone in the Trump family. ‘Try to imagine one of the Trump kids dropping the n-word,’ he tweeted.
This week, CNN have run a story about Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner distancing themselves from Ivanka’s dad, as well as a follow-up analysis of that claim.
The story about Hunter using his father’s credit card for sex with a prostitute was covered numerous times on Fox News – including on shows hosted by the network’s most popular stars Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity.
But CNN did not mention the credit card story, and MNSBC avoided it altogether.
The lack of coverage has prompted outrage among conservatives with many taking to Twitter to accuse the liberal media of double standards.
