The media has its priorities. It only covers the news that’s fit to print.
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.
That comes from NPR which, shamelessly, announces that the only way it’s going to cover a major scandal involving the son of a presidential candidate is by…
1. Depicting Hunter Biden as a victim
2. Praising Big Tech for banning the story
…while insisting that it’s a distraction and there’s nothing there.
Meanwhile in a substantative story that is not a distraction, NPR decided to widely cover out of context footage of Giuliani lying on a bad while being pranked by Borat.

Totally substantative and not a distraction.
