NewsBusters Podcast: Nets Ignoring Climate Clashes and Hunter Biden's Cash-Ins

October 15th, 2021 10:24 PM

The networks that are still obsessing over January 6 weren't talking about leftist climate protesters "occupying" the Interior Department this week and fighting with police. (The cops aren't heroes any more.) The Washington Post had a little story on the front of the Metro section on Friday that both police and protesters were injured in clashes over the struggle to get inside the Interior Department's building in DC. Unlike the Capitol Police, who were honored as heroes, these security guards were criticized as using excessive force.

Then Geoff Dickens, our Director of Media Analysis, discusses his new survey of all the Hunter Biden scandal stories the networks are shamelessly ignoring. The latest developments in the president's son selling his art works (or mere prints of his art works) for the potential access to the president are uniformly spiked.

The most interesting story offers the prospect that Joe Biden and Hunter Biden shared finances, which would make the federal investigation of Hunter's affairs much more interesting.
