Why Are the Media Ignoring Corruption?
Why Are the Media Ignoring Corruption?
Despite evidence of corruption piling up, the media still refuse to cover Biden’s influence-peddling. Why?
From The Hill. This week, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) tried to do the impossible. After he and his colleagues presented a labyrinth of LLC shell companies and accounts used to funnel as much as $10 million to Biden family members, Donalds tried to induce the press to show some interest in the massive corruption scandal. “For those in the press, this easy pickings & Pulitzer-level stuff right here,” he pleaded.

The response was virtually immediate. Despite showing nine Biden family members allegedly receiving funds from corrupt figures in Romania, China and other countries, The New Republic quickly ran a story headlined “Republicans Finally Admit They Have No Incriminating Evidence on Joe Biden.” …
The brilliance of the Biden team was that it invested the media in this scandal at the outset by burying the laptop story as “Russian disinformation” before the election. That was, of course, false, but it took two years for most major media outlets to admit that the laptop was authentic.
But the media then ignored what was on that “authentic laptop.” Hundreds of emails detailed potentially criminal conduct and raw influence peddling in foreign countries. …
Now that the House has released corroboration in actual money transfers linking many in the Biden family, the media is insisting that this is no scandal because there is no direct proof of payments to Joe Biden. …
The whole purpose of influence peddling is to use family members as shields for corrupt officials. Instead of making a direct payment to a politician, which could be seen as a bribe, you can give millions to his or her spouse or children. …
None of that matters. The New York Times ran a piece headlined, “House Republican Report Finds No Evidence of Wrongdoing by President Biden.” …
The fact is that the Times may indeed be trying for another Pulitzer Prize. …
What Donalds fails to appreciate is that this is sometimes how Pulitzers are made. Roughly 100 years ago, New York Times reporter Walter Duranty won the Pulitzer for his coverage of the Soviet Union despite serving as an apologist for Joe Stalin. …
Years later, Ukraine and various groups demanded that Duranty’s prize be rescinded, but the Committee insisted that there was no “clear and convincing evidence of deliberate deception.”
What is most impressive about this week is that all but a few outlets seem to be angling for the next Duranty Pulitzer. …
The coverage this week has all the markings of a state media. The consistent spin. The almost universal lack of details. The absurd distinctions. …
The media simply fails to see the story. Of course, it can always look to the president for enlightenment. Just before his son received a massive transfer of money from one of the most corrupt figures in Romania, Biden explained to that country why corruption must remain everyone’s focus. “Corruption is a cancer, a cancer that eats away at a citizen’s faith in democracy,” he said. “Corruption is just another form of tyranny.”
It is just a shame that no one wants to cover it.

Has anyone heard from the media that the governors of the following states are pledging support for border protection: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Has anyone heard from the media that Gov. Abbott, in his letter to his fellow 49 governors, wrote, “The flood of illegal border activity invited by the Biden Administration flows directly across the southern border into Texas communities, but this crisis does not stop in our state. Emboldened Mexican drug cartels and other transnational criminal enterprises profit off this chaos, smuggling people and dangerous drugs like fentanyl into communities nationwide.
“In the federal government’s absence, we, as Governors, must band together to combat President Biden’s ongoing border crisis and ensure the safety and security that all Americans deserve.”
NO Dem governors responded.
Dear Heavenly Father, the media is like the “little horn” spewing lies and distortion. This is the continual narrative coming from them. I pray You will expose them to shame. I pray You will expose them to destruction. I pray NO ONE watches, listens and believes their lies. As for the planned destruction of America through border torpor, I pray EVERY state will be compelled to support Texas and the border region with ALL the resources they need. May this administration’s plans perish, just as their eternal souls will, in their current state. Lord hear our prayers. Amen
They are not ignoring. It is part of the destructive agenda to take down the United States of America.
There was a Coup in our Nation and some people are just starting to notice something seems amiss!
BUT God! He is Awakening His Sleeping Church that has slumbered for decades in apathy, ignorance, and religion. He is stirring and convicting Hearts to Seek, Know, and Love Him.
Father, forgive us. In Your great mercy we come to You in repentance for all of our sin, and sin in the Church and Government. You are a Merciful and Loving God Who created this Nation. You love her and we repent for allowing corruption and destruction to enter in because we walked away from You and Your Righteous Precepts just as Israel did. Lord, Thank You for Your Loving Kindness! May Your Kingdom and Righteous Government come to earth as it is in Heaven!
Father, Thank you that we are seeing the exposure of lies that have been used to mislead us, to shape public opinion, and to “control the herd”. Their has been a well coordinated effort between political allies (on both sides) and the news media for many years.
But you Lord have “interrupted their regular scheduled program “. Thank you! By your hand we’re, witnessing the curtains being torn from the “top down” and lies, one after another being exposed.
And we know that You are doing this. You are the God of justice. Exposure is only the first and very necessary step in your plan to clean house, drain the swamp – awaken the righteous, and save this nation. You are faithful, mighty God, and what you have begun you will complete.
We are reminded us again Lord, that we are engaged in a great spiritual war. And you are calling us to continue to stand with you faithfully, in prayer, to see this battle won.
Thank you Lord. Amen
