Joe Biden, Hunter’s laptop, and media lapdogs

Hunter’s comments Friday to CBS during a book tour bring the laptop back into play. While I’m not naive enough to assume The New York Times, CNN and Twitter will suddenly become anything other than leftist shills, they no longer have a monopoly on the information many Americans get.

Moreover, as president, Biden cannot hide as easily as he did last year. Press conferences provide journalists opportunities to ask him directly about his role in Hunter’s deals.

Also, press secretary Jen Psaki holds near-daily briefings, where reporters have time to raise complicated subjects. All these events are televised, so merely asking clear, fact-based questions about the president’s conduct alerts viewers to the issues and stakes.

If Biden or Psaki won’t give credible answers, Americans will know they are hiding something important.
