In the glorious annals of journalism, this Associated Press headline deserves to be emblazoned on the walls of the Newseum, if the pathetic institution hadn’t collapsed and evacuated its own building, as the perfect embodiment of modern journalism.
Ruh roh! Biden pooch drops doggie doo in White House hallway – Associated Press
The AP is entitled to humiliate itself if it wants to. But this is the same AP that instead of covering the Hunter Biden scandal during the election chose to launch an explainer spinning the revelations about him, and now offers up a promo for his memoir that avoids any mention of the issue.
In the 20 or so paragraphs about the son of the guy in the White House, the AP relentlessly promotes Hunter’s narrative about drug addiction, pushes his memoir as hard as a crack dealer, but fails to mention the FBI investigation.
As of early March, the investigation was moving forward.
The federal investigation into Hunter Biden’s “tax affairs” is “active and ongoing,” two sources familiar with the status of the probe told Fox News.
At the time, a well-placed government source told Fox News that Hunter Biden is a subject/target of the grand jury investigation. According to the source, a “target” means that there is a “high probability that person committed a crime,” while a “subject” is someone you “don’t know for sure” has committed a crime.
The source also told Fox News that this investigation was predicated, in part, by Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) regarding suspicious foreign transactions.
Another source familiar with the investigation told Fox News that the SARs were regarding funds from “China and other foreign nations.”
How is it possible to write about a political figure who is the subject of a money-laundering investigation without mentioning it? Ruh-roh, the AP can do it when he’s a Democrat.
The AP also seems to have avoided reporting on Hunter Biden’s gun issue and the Secret Service. But it found time to report on the defecations of Biden’s dog and found time to also shill his son’s memoir.
Hunter Biden, now 51, also writes about thinking he had developed a superpower — “the ability to find crack in any town, at any time, no matter how unfamiliar the terrain,”
Meanwhile, the AP has the inverse superpower, the inability to find a damaging story about Biden anywhere, no matter how widely it’s been reported.
