NPR Confirms They’ve Refused to Cover Hunter Biden Story

NPR Confirms They’ve Refused to Cover Hunter Biden Story

“We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories”

Thursday, NPR explained why they’ve refused to cover the Hunter Biden story. Sort of.

The link further explains:

There are many, many red flags in that New York Post investigation. NPR Media Correspondent David Folkenflik detailed most of them here. Intelligence officials warn that Russia has been working overtime to keep the story of Hunter Biden in the spotlight. Even if Russia can’t be positively connected to this information, the story of how Trump associates Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani came into a copy of this computer hard drive has not been verified and seems suspect. And if that story could be verified, the NY Post did no forensic work to convince consumers that the emails and photos that are the basis for their report have not been altered.

But the biggest reason you haven’t heard much on NPR about the Post story is that the assertions don’t amount to much.

“We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions,” NPR Managing Editor for News Terence Samuel told me. “And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”

The handful of stories that NPR has produced about the NY Post investigation have been limited to how Facebook and Twitter are restricting distribution of the story or how families of those seeking treatment for addiction are impacted by the portrayal of Hunter Biden’s struggle— Kelly McBride

If this were only about Hunter Biden, maybeeeee. Maaaaybe. But it’s not. As more information is provided, including texts and emails, it’s looking more like former Vice President Biden himself being involved in corruption and profiting greatly off of his position and influence. But I guess that’s not newsworthy, or something.

Meanwhile, the Russiagate hoax, which was never substantiated, was covered in earnest.

        For your consideration….

        Broadcast posted on Sept. 24, 2020.

        Sept.24th Lude’s broadcast: 3 hard drives.Jiang Zemin, Zeng Qinghong, Meng Jianzhu made the move – provided 3 hard drives to the DOJ of America, and another copy to Nancy Pelosi. However, with the help from our fellow fighter, these hard drives reached the hands of President Trump.The 1st hard drive: sex tapes & pedo tapes of Hunter Biden, as well as his 4.5 billion dollars secret deal with Xi & Wang;The 2nd hard drive: the allocation of Xi & Wang’s overseas wealth, and ‘the architecture & art project’, which is the information of their illegitimate children;The 3rd hard drive: CCP’s bioweapon

Let the apologies for covering Russiagate ad nauseum begin! NPR, you go first.

A completed corrupted politician for 40 years as a Senator and as a VP for 8 years is not a story!

And to boot, compromised by selling American sovereignty interests for personal gain and for the advantage of an acknowledged adverse nation (China for one).

As Obama claim, “not a whiff of a scandal.”

Defund NPR in 2021.

    Too bad we can’t make it retroactive.

    They don’t need the little they get as a direct federal grant. They can easily do without it — which is why they should even if they were behaving well.

    There was a time that I would not agree with defunding NPR, their coverage has steadily become little more than propaganda. Let Soros pay their way.

Didn’t stop them from running with the Russia Hoax for 3 years.

I would venture to say over 50% of America believes this story is worth being investigated.

ok, so this must be “Freedom of the Press”, how about in 2021 a new amendment gets added called “Freedom FROM the Press (& Google, Facebook, Twitter,etc.)”?

The duty of NPR is to push the narrative. Their position aligns to that duty. NPR does not report news. They just said so. I hope THAT is not news to anybody.

Yes, no taxpayer subsidies for these Marxists.

From their standpoint this really isn’t much of a story. A corrupt Democrat? What’s new about that? It would be news if they found an honest one.

I can’t even listen to the NPR political analysts anymore. They don’t even bother to hide their far left bias. And the negative, negative, negative is just too much to take.

They blame the NY Post for not doing enough, then do nothing themselves before reaching a conclusion there is nothing to the story. Shoddy, and that’s putting it politely.

I am old enough to remember when NPR eagerly and willingly published Russian disinformation as gospel truth. Of course, that was during the Cold War when the Russians were still the Good Guys…….

National Politburo Radio

Blah blah blah. Why these channels are dead to me (unless they’re showing cute animals – which is what they should probably stick to).

Remind me, did they run with the tax return story? That wasn’t long ago in the before times, that was just about two weeks ago

Refund the Democrats Propaganda ministry

NPR sucks.

Most pathetic “October surprise” in history.

The lack of journalistic integrity is just sickening. If a Republican is accused of something questionable,it is a story. And one they will continue to repeat with the most damaging spin possible, even after it is proven less than true if not outright false. However, if a Democrat is PROVEN to have done the same type of thing, straight out of his own mouth, backed up by solid evidence, then it is not a story at all. That isn’t journalism. That’s lies and damn lies.

You might not be wasting your time but you are wasting my money. MAGA by defunding NPR.

Taxpayer support of the left-wing biased national public radio has been long. a disgrace.

your tax dollars hard at work

Their choice of words is revealing. The Hunter Biden story isn’t a fabrication or speculation, it’s a “distraction”.

There is an easy fool proof test: Substitute the names “Donald Trump” and “Donald Trump, Jr.” and tell me you still wouldn’t run the story.

Point made. Just sayin’.
