CNN Can’t Find a Biden Scandal? They’re Not Looking.

The networks which have obsessed 24/7 for years about easy methods to “shut the partitions in” on Donald Trump and break him profess some fatigue with conservatives who ask concerning the Biden scandals.

On “CNN This Morning” on Monday, visitor host Phil Mattingly complained concerning the cowl of The New York Submit. He stated: “It is going to be acquainted for these of us who dwell in Washington as a result of we’ve been sort of residing on this world all through the course of any investigation of former President Trump since President [Joe] Biden took workplace. It says, ‘What Concerning the Bidens?’—speaking about Hunter Biden, speaking about Joe Biden.”

He requested CNN reporter Sara Murray, “Is {that a} honest analogue?”

Murray stated no, it’s not “apples to apples,” however it’s honest to ask the place the federal government is headed on the Hunter Biden probe. CNN authorized analyst Elie Honig, no softy on Trump, then unleashed concerning the lethargy on the Justice Division.

“That is preposterous,” he stated. “This has been pending, in accordance with our reporting at CNN, since 2018, 5 years,” all about some tax questions and whether or not Hunter lied on a gun type. “I imply, that’s a five-week investigation. And this spans the Trump administration and the Biden administration. Somebody has acquired to make a name on this case. I don’t know what’s going on, however it’s past something I’ve seen earlier than.”

However CNN’s day by day tackle the Biden scandals is “What Biden scandals?”

I performed a recreation and simply put “Biden scandals” right into a Nexis search of CNN transcripts for the previous month. There was just one outcome, and it wasn’t actually a outcome. It was a sound-bite medley of Trump performed on the Sunday present “Inside Politics with Abby Phillip.”

First got here a sentence from Nov. 2, 2020: “We’ve been hit by pretend, pretend investigations, pretend scandals, pretend impeachments.” After which from March 25: “The Biden regime’s weaponization of regulation enforcement in opposition to their political opponent is one thing straight out of Stalinist Russia.”

As these clips performed, the textual content on display screen was lurid: “WashPost: Trump’s Positions, Rhetoric Have Grown Extra Excessive, Much less ‘Tethered to Actuality’ Since 2020.”

So, the one approach a search engine can discover “Biden” and “scandals” is scattered in sound bites CNN implies are a psychotic break with actuality. CNN has zero disgrace about this, regardless of their common speaking heads evaluating Trump to Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, you identify it.

I attempted a second Nexis search of CNN transcripts over the previous month, for “Burisma.” There have been two outcomes. On June 6, liberal Rep. Daniel Goldman, D-N.Y., talked about it—to say it was nothing.

On Saturday morning, June 10, CNN weekend host Michael Smerconish echoed Honig: “It’s inexcusable that such an uncomplicated case continues to be unresolved. And it’s true that legacy media present zero urge for food to pursue questions on potential monetary entanglements between Hunter and the president.”

Smerconish added: “Home Oversight Committee Chair James Comer is at the moment wanting on the declare of an FBI informant that the top of Burisma paid each Hunter and the then-vice president, $5 million every. The president flatly says that’s ‘malarkey.’”

This man is the one one at CNN who may point out the FBI informant saying Joe and Hunter Biden took 5 million smackers apiece—which implies he’s proper that “legacy media confirmed zero urge for food,” together with the individuals who pay him.

The media’s excessive apathy underlines why Miranda Devine at The New York Submit wrote: “Audacity is Joe Biden’s magic energy. When the partitions are closing in, he laughs in your face and dares you to return after him.”
