Last Tuesday the House Oversite Committee announced it would release a memo about how Joe Biden peddled his influence to the tune of at least $10 million in bribes. What should have been the most explosive story was a dud as mainstream news outlets chose not to cover it in deference to two other stories that broke earlier. The mainstream media continued its day-old coverage of the Federal jury defamation and sexual abuse verdict against Donald Trump in the E. Jean Carroll case. Next was the breaking news story of the oft-anticipated 13-count indictment of US Representative George Santos (R-NY) for fraud, lying, and money laundering. Meantime, the Biden bribery story was largely ignored.
While Fox News, Breitbart, New York Post, Epoch Times and several conservative news outlets were leading with the Biden bribery story early Tuesday, other news media continued with day-old news insinuating that Donald Trump raped E. Jean Carroll. By 1:30 pm EST, CNN, Drudge, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, and NBC were all carrying the E. Jean Carroll story (now two days old) and the Santos indictment story. MSNBC’s third story was “How Biden can unmask McCarthy with one question.” CBS’s third story was “Buddy Holly wins best of show at Westminster dog show.” This is an example of how these outlets manipulate public opinion without the public even realizing it. But there is more.
Basic points of the House Oversight Committee memo were that the Committee received thousands of bank records; The Biden family members and business associates created a web of over 20 companies receiving over $10 million from foreign companies while Biden was Vice President; millions of dollars from foreign companies were also received by the Biden family through business associates’ companies and the Bidens tried to hide the financial transactions; Chinese nationals with significant ties to Chinese intelligence and the Chinese Communist Party hid the money trail to the Bidens; and that further investigation is warranted because of evidence of influence peddling. This is a matter of national security.
When the mainstream media finally couldn’t ignore the story, it played “catch up” by downplaying the significance of the 36-page memo, quoting the White House saying that it was an unsubstantiated politically-motivated Republican vendetta, and editorializing about how the memo wasn’t credible. This is a further example of how the mainstream news media manipulates public opinion by disguising its own opinion as news rather than reporting the facts. As is written in 2 Timothy 3:13, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” Interesting that the two stories the mainstream media covered were negative on Republicans, and the one that they delayed coverage was about the influence peddling of Biden’s and their Democrat associates. Can we say, “media censoring news”?
