Journalist Asks Biden Question, Media Flip Out

Behold, a journalist committed an act of journalism against Joe Biden, and for that, he must be shunned. SHUNNED!!! CRY, CRY FOR SHAME!

In one of the largest instances of the Streisand Effect known to modern politics, the attempted censoring of the New York Post‘s Hunter Biden email story by Twitter and Facebook has only driven people to ask real, legitimate questions about exactly what Joe Biden knew and when did he know it – and, did he profit by it?

These are actual questions that an actual journalist should ask.

And then an actual journalist – in this case, Bo Erickson of CBS News – attempted to ask Joe Biden about it. Biden, however, did his usual attack avoidance.


And if you want to know why the state of journalism is in its death throes, just look at the responses by so-called “journalists” and other self-important Twitter blue checks. While some defended Erickson, most either stayed eerily silent, or ripped him for DARING to ask the anointed candidate, Joe Biden, a HARD question. HOW DARE HE.


Ah, the fallback position for any so-called “journalist” during the Trump administration – when in doubt, when things look bad, always scream RUSSIA! It’s like yelling “SQUIRREL!” to a dog, and then hoping the public turns its head.

The level of protectionism surrounding Joe Biden is clearly indicated by just how few among the journalist community are willing to pursue any questions about this story regarding Hunter’s business dealings. If his name were “Hunter Trump” instead of Hunter Biden, the media would be combing through each email and running down every lead. The computer repair shop owner would have been hailed as a “hero of the Resistance.” The demands for down-ballot candidates to respond to the email issue would flood through every single newsroom.

But since the media is all in on protecting Joe Biden the way they protected Hillary Clinton four years ago – remember, we couldn’t ask her hard questions about her health, her emails, or the money she raked in for the Clinton Foundation? – the journalist who dares pose a hard question of Biden and doesn’t work for Fox News or another “right-leaning” outlet is to be shunned as a heretic against the religion of the left. There is no god but politics to the professional journalist, and Biden is its prophet. At least, for the moment, until a new and better prophet can be appointed by holy acclimation by the left.

Someday – be it in January 2021 or in January 2025 – Donald Trump will no longer be president. And journalists will want the American public to take them seriously. Those days are gone, and journalism by way of the mainstream media is dead. It was a lengthy suicide by their own hand, accelerated as they first kissed Barack Obama’s ass to cover for his scandals, then flipped on a dime to scour the earth for the sins of Donald Trump, and are now circling the wagons yet again around their current precious, Joe Biden. The pretense of objective fact-gathering and presenting is gone. And when the day comes that Trump is no longer in office, and journalists everywhere are confused as to why no one listens to them any more, do me a favor. Point and laugh at them. Mock them and tease them for thinking that they are better and smarter than the people they cover. They are not. They deserve nothing but scorn and mockery for the kind of “yellow journalism” that would have made Hearst and Pulitzer blush.

    After years of the the media induced hysteria over RUSSIA I’m afraid most people are like the cilia in your ears when exposed to loud noise, they have shut down. I’ve been a libertarian for decades but will be voting straight R for the first time ever. I have to because if Gropey Joe wins the corrupt DC insiders will get away scot free and the nutbag left could enact laws that may result in the country splitting. If they win I hope not, I think a Biden with all his faculties could slow their roll enough to avert disaster but the dude is not all there. Trouble ahead, trouble behind to quote the Grateful Dead.

    What with all the Orangemanbad journalism, I’d forgotten about the Clinton Foundation. How much money have they been raising when they don’t have influence to sell?

    As I keep saying, I don’t know whether the media are a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Dems, or it’s the other way round, but it is OBVIOUS that they are in CAHOOTS. (No copyright on that comment; feel free to use it or improve on it.)
