A Big Boo Hoo for Joe Biden [OPINION]
The Biden people are beside themselves that the press might actually cover possible corruption involving Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Isn't the press supposed to only bash Trump? Come on, guys, you're not playing fair.
The Daily Wire says the Biden camp wrote to the networks and "demanded that they no longer book Trump lawyer Rudy Guiliani" to discuss allegations surrounding the Biden-Ukraine corruption scandal.
“We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump," Biden's people wrote. 'Giving Rudy Giuliani valuable time on your air to push these lies in the first place is a disservice to your audience and a disservice to journalism.”
The letter continues, “By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”
Are they serious? So now the left is concerned about fairness in the media. Walk a mile in Trump's shoes, Joe.
Meanwhile, if all of this is making you nuts, you are not alone. A new PLOS One survey finds that nearly a third of all Americans say cable news political reporting is driving them "crazy." According to Breitbart, the survey's author says the results could pose a "public health crisis." They may be on to something there.
If you think you are crazy now, just wait. There is speculation that Hillary Clinton is preparing to jump into the race to replace a rapidly-imploding Joe Biden. You haven't seen crazy yet – and this thing still has another year to go.
Stay strong, America.
