There is a lot of news coverage about what President Trump had to say to the new president of Ukraine in July and whether or not Trump violated any laws by asking that President Zelensky re-open a corruption investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

So far there is little evidence of any wrongdoing on Trump's part, just more left-wing hysteria designed as a diversion in the never-ending quest to undo the 2016 elections. But there appears to be a lot of "there there" concerning Biden and his son. The big question is why is it getting so little press?

Biden is on videotape bragging about how he shook down the Ukraine government to drop an investigation into the company his kid was working for or lose more than $1 billion in U.S. aid. That's big stuff, yet there is very little coverage of it anywhere. I don't get it.

Biden's kid was also booted from the Navy allegedly due to drug use, had an affair with his brother's wife and returned a rented car with a crack pipe in the ashtray. His dealings with the Chinese raise an awful lot of questions as well. Yet the press is silent.

Can you image the uproar from the mainstream media if Trump's kid was at the center of any of this? OMG!

The Biden controversy is expanding by the hour. There are more and more suggestions that dealings Biden and his son had with multiple foreign governments, including Ukraine and China, may not have been on the up and up, yet media coverage is skinny.

The truth will not be denied and ultimately we will know to what extent the Bidens might be corrupt. Unfortunately, we cannot rely on fair and honest media working to dig out those truths.
