“I have no response, it’s a smear campaign, right up your alley”
The Hunter Biden email scandal is gaining steam despite the best efforts of Big Tech. Mary covered the scandal as it emerged when the New York Post published the bombshell, and now Joe Biden has responded. In typical Joe Biden fashion, he attacked the reporter asking the question and dismissed the underlying scandal as a “smear.”
CBS News’ Bo Erickson asked Biden for his response to the Post story, and Biden responded that he has “no response” and called the scandal a “smear campaign.” He also dismissed Erickson and said that smear campaigns are “right up [his] alley.”
I asked Joe Biden: What is your response to the NYPost story about your son, sir?
He called it a “smear campaign” and then went after me. “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.” pic.twitter.com/Eo6VD4TqxD

Erickson asked a reasonable question: what is your reaction? Nothing hard-hitting or accusatory or in any way offensive. You’d think.
But his news director took to Twitter, in a now deleted tweet, to “correct” him.
.@BoKnowsNews news director @TheSteveHolzer reprimanded him tonight in public for asking Joe Biden a tough question. He should be fired immediately. He deleted the tweet but I did him the favor of saving it for him. Does @CBSNews stand behind this "journalism?" pic.twitter.com/sVQWcFrmiD

That’s journalism 2020, embed the narrative in the “question” and spoon-feed the answer in same. Or maybe that’s just how it’s done for Joe given his problems with speaking. Or knowing for what office he is running. Or with whom he is running.
Biden’s non-denials and attacks on reporters will not work to quiet the controversy.
Tucker Carlson had a segment last night in which he stated that Fox News has verified that the laptop hard drive is “conclusively” Hunter Biden’s.
Furthermore, Fox News is reporting that one person on an email chain about China influence peddling has verified that email.
