CNN has now spent a year running political interference for Hunter Biden and the rest of the Biden family to take viewers’ attention away from a series of reports detailing their scandalous corruption that emerged in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election.
The New York Post, which initially reported its findings on Hunter’s laptop just weeks before the election, was targeted and censored by Big Tech companies. Despite the long list of corroborating evidence, reports, and even a full-fledged government investigation into Hunter’s sketchy business and money ties, corporate media chose to smear the story as fake news and even adopted the Democrat narrative that it was somehow “Russian disinformation.”
CNN, in particular, took great interest in not only amplifying Democrats’ lies that downplayed the sordid behavior captured by the Post’s reporting on the laptop, but even boosting Hunter and his dad as legitimate and trustworthy figures.
For a while, the outlet, like many others in the corrupt corporate media, refused to cover the Post’s findings that Hunter rose to the top of a Ukraine energy company while his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, served as the White House’s “public face” to the nation. When CNN finally got around to mentioning that the son of the Democrat presidential candidate may have used his dad’s ties to boost his own overseas business dealings and then offered a cut back to Joe, its anchors, reporters, and even media guests regurgitated the leftist narrative that Hunter and his now-president dad did nothing wrong.
“There’s no evidence that Hunter Biden has done anything wrong,” Jake Tapper repeated numerous times during CNN’s brief and biased coverage of the scandal. “There is no evidence that anybody did anything illegal regarding the Bidens and Ukraine, and Joe Biden was carrying out US policy,” he added in one segment.
Anderson Cooper, one of the outlet’s most recognizable media darlings, even interjected CNN’s scripted agenda on the Bidens during one of the Democratic presidential debates.
“President Trump has falsely accused your son of doing something wrong while serving on a company board in Ukraine. I want to point out there’s no evidence of wrongdoing by either one of you,” Cooper said.
Biden naturally agreed with Cooper and the leading, opinionated question.
“My son did nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong,” Biden said. “I carried out the policy of the United States in rooting out corruption in Ukraine.”
Now-First Lady Jill Biden also laughed off any reports of Hunter’s wrongdoing and told CNN viewers, “Hunter has done nothing wrong.”

During her coverage of Hunter, CNN anchor Brianna Keilar even went so far as to say, “Trump’s claims about wrongdoing here are unsubstantiated,” adding, “We have looked, lots of outlets have looked.”
Chris Cuomo — who used his position in the media to cover for his brother Andrew Cuomo during the then-New York governor’s sexual malfeasance and deadly COVID-19 nursing home policy scandals — also piled onto the pro-Biden narrative.
“PolitiFact found no evidence to support the idea that Joe Biden advocated with his son’s interests in mind,” Cuomo told his viewers.
CNN also stood idly by when Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed that “what it confirms is that Hunter Biden is a person of integrity.”
Brian Stelter went so far as to praise Hunter and give his book a boost on air.
“I’ve never read a memoir like this one before,” he said. “This is Hunter Biden’s book ‘Beautiful Things.’ … It’s breathtaking.”
