In Stunning Example of Activism, NPR Refuses to Cover Hunter Biden Story: “We Don’t Want to Waste Our Time”

Headlines Politics U.S.

National Public Radio (NPR) is refusing to cover the Hunter Biden email scandal. In a statement by the outlet, Managing Editor Terence Samuels has called the scandal a “distraction” and a “waste of time.”

“We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions,” Samuel is quoted as saying. “And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was…a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”

The New York Post published explosive emails retrieved from a laptop once belonging to Hunter Biden last week. The emails detail an operation in which the Biden family appears to have benefited financially (to the tune of millions of dollars) from peddling its political influence to foreign actors from countries such as Ukraine and China.

Evidence strongly suggests that Joe Biden himself was involved in the operations. Since the emails have been published, two ex-business associates of Hunter Biden have turned over evidence directly linking Joe Biden to Hunter Biden’s dealings.

The Biden campaign has, to date, not challenged the authenticity of any of the texts or emails that have been published, nor the veracity of the witnesses that have come forward.
