Il Biden campaign is “taking advantage” of the media bias against Presidente Trump to keep the controversia surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter out of the spotlight, former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer claimed Wednesday.
“It doesn’t bring me any happiness to say they just ignore it because they can,” Fleischer said on “Outnumbered Overtime“.
“The saddest thing about this to me, as somebody who used to believe that the press’s first and worst bias was a bias in favor of conflict, that’s no longer the case,” Fleischer said. “Their first and worst bias is a bias against Donald Trump at all costs, and so they have abandoned their mission, they’ve abandoned their duty to cover the news.”
The former press secretary added that the “media has broken down and Joe Biden can take advantage of it.” He added that technology had changed the way people consume news, making information “a lot harder to get out, though it is getting out.”
“Even when the news is direct, on the record, [e] comes from a person involved, they stifle it, they muzzle it, they censor it, they will not cover it,” Fleischer went on. “And this is after four years worth of them covering any little spurious, incorrect information that came from anonymous sources against Donald Trump.”
Martedì, Tony Bobulinski, ex socio in affari di Hunter Biden, detto “Tucker Carlson stasera” in an exclusive interview that Joe BidenLe negazioni di conoscenza o di coinvolgimento nei rapporti con l'estero di suo figlio lo sono “una palese bugia.”
Bobulinski, un veterano della Marina ed ex capo della SinoHawk Holdings — which he described as a partnership between the CEFC Cina Conglomerato energetico e due membri della famiglia Biden — ha detto a Carlson di essere quasi uscito dal secondo dibattito presidenziale della scorsa settimana quando Biden ha discusso l'argomento.
“In quel dibattito, ha fatto una dichiarazione specifica intorno alle domande su questo dal presidente,” ha ricordato Bobulinski, che ha partecipato al dibattito come ospite di Trump. “E sarò onesto con te, Mi sono quasi alzato e ho gridato "bugiardo’ e me ne sono andato perché sono rimasto scioccato dal fatto che dopo quattro o cinque giorni si preparassero per questo, che la famiglia Biden sta assumendo quella posizione nel mondo.”
Messaggi di testo ottenuti da Fox News la scorsa settimana includono uno scambio tra Bobulinski e James Biden, il fratello minore del candidato democratico, in cui Bobulinski chiede a James “grazie Joe per il suo tempo”.
Fleischer’s co-panelist Leslie Marshall responded that Americans do not care about Hunter Biden’s laptop and his emails and “it won’t matter.”
“I think I’ve agreed twice in my lifetime with Ted Cruz and yesterday was one of those days when he said the voters don’t care about Hunter Biden, his laptop, and his emails,” Marshall said. “Look, here is the problem with this, Harris. It is six days before the election. There are a lot of people that say, 'Bene, where was this guy before, why didn’t he say it?’ Why don’t we have other people that worked with him and surrounding him saying, 'Si, I was there for that conversation’?”
Marshall added that in declining to respond to Bobulinski, the Biden campaign is “saying with their silence, ‘We’re not going to give credence to this by not responding to this.'”
Marshall went on to say that Joe Biden’s tax returns do not reflect any of the evidence cited by Bobulinksi.
“Quite frankly, I think the Biden campaign six days out is smart to be silent on this and, purtroppo, the voters pretty much have already made up their minds and have already voted and this won’t matter.”
