Politico: Hunter Biden Corruption Scandal ‘Is Not Going Away’

By

Corporate-owned media this week can no longer ignore mounting evidence of Hunter Biden’s ethics scandals, with both Politico and Business Insider — both owned by Germany’s Axel Springer SE — publishing articles on the Biden family’s culture of corruption.

Business Insider’s article, by senior correspondent Mattathias Schwartz, declares in its headline: “Hunter Biden isn’t Trump, but what he’s up to is bad and deserves your attention — even if you hate Fox News,” above an illustration of President Joe Biden cradling his chin in his hand, with Hunter hiding behind a wall of money.

“The ferociously partisan nature of the issue… has made it easy for the mainstream media to effectively dismiss the entire Hunter imbroglio as a figment of the GOP’s fevered imagination,” Schwartz writes, then concedes the Biden family business is the kind of “old-school, look-the-other way corruption that has permeated politics since long before the elder Biden ran for office.”

The Insider article functions as a synergistic promotion of The Bidens, a new book from sister publication Politico‘s Ben Schreckinger, which corroborated pre-election revelations of Hunter arranging a meeting between his father and an executive at Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that paid the Vice President’s son $83,000 a month — despite his total lack of experience in the energy sector.

The day before Insider published Schwartz’s story, Politico Magazine published a piece from Schreckinger — adapted from his book — on the same topic: “‘Hiding the Ball’: Hunter Biden Complicates White House Anti-Corruption Push.”

After a mea culpa on why corporate-owned media have buried ethics concerns over Hunter’s dealings until now — all the while throwing plenty of blame toward Donald Trump and conservatives — Schreckinger admits: “Far from ethical concerns about Hunter Biden being debunked, the case for close scrutiny only grows stronger when viewed in the full context of the family’s story and in light of events that have unfolded since Election Day.”
