Fox News is staying on the story because they are not covering for Joe Biden like the lamestream liberal MSM media. Fox News is not afraid to report on Hunter Biden's former business partner coming forward with proof of Joe's corruption by way of pictures of a phone's* text messages that show that Hunter clearly invoked his father when discussing a business deal, meaning that Joe Biden was definitely leveraging his power over foreign policy by way of the office of the Vice Presidency to influence this deal when it happened in May 2017.

*Which happened to be connected to a Russian cellular network.

So much for, "we're not going to cover that unsubstantiated mess."

Almost as if they got word to flog it, because even the Post was having to back away from it.

Well, the Trump admin is getting bold now with them. They're running spots on NBC LA basing claims about Joe and Hunter off the fake emails. And if I am not mistaken, Joe is fair game, but unsubstantiated claims on his son are not protected speech.

Just when you think we've hit bottom...

Legally protected? Maybe, maybe not. But protected by the fact that nobody wants to punish part of the Republican propaganda apparatus lest the rest of said apparatus go on the offensive? Definitely.

The story they thought was so thin that Murdoch's tabloid, The New York Post, which has no reason to be considered as actual news, ran with it instead of Fox News.

Because that would have compromised their worn veneer of legitimacy.

And a few news agencies have asked for a copy of the hard drive, so they can do their own analysis of the files, and so far Rudy hasn't replied.

It's almost like he doesn't want people looking over his bullshiat.


Pretty sure Rudy doesn't know how to falsify an email header that would last more than a second's examination.

Trump & FOXNews are showing 4 year old re-runs.

No one wants to watch a show from back in 2016. They are incredibly stupid.

That shows how bereft of ideas they are to smear Biden.

It's also one of the clearest examples of projection yet. Republicans are getting upset that Hunter Biden may have gotten a job based on Joe Biden's name...while Ivanka and Jared have vaguely-defined jobs in the White House, with no oversight and high security clearance, that they have consistently used to enrich themselves.

Even if the story was true, getting your kid a cushy board of directors job is a little less worrying than creating entirely new high-level government positions out of thin air for your damn kids.

It was actually beautiful to watch. He wants the Lady OUT! GONE! That Obamagate flop? GONE! All the investigations that come up empty? GONE!

How did he put it? Tune him out!

The Lady pissed off one of his biggest disciples and he went for the throat.

"Lamestream liberal MSM media (sic)".  Pretty threadbare these days from gross overuse by conservatives with no imagination.  I mean, break it down -- "Lamestream (mainstream) Liberal MSM (main stream media) Media".  Not too elegant is it?
