How come this story on Biden corruption was legitimate twelve years ago, but gets swept under the rug today?
There was a time where having a (D) after your name wasn’t always enough to keep the tough questions at bay. That was before today’s Media(D) started being open about the (D) after their industry name.
It’s been a long time since those days in the PartisanPress.
And either Brokow had a hard time shaking the ‘journalist’ habit, or he lucked into this story and found it worth following.
Either way, there was a time only 12 years ago, where the Media on the Left asked Democrat politicians the hard questions about corruption.
During the years that Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. was helping the credit card industry win passage of a law making it harder for consumers to file for bankruptcy protection, his son had a consulting agreement that lasted five years with one of the largest companies pushing for the changes, aides to Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign acknowledged Sunday.
Mr. Biden’s son, Hunter, received consulting fees from the MBNA Corporation from 2001 to 2005 for work on online banking issues. Aides to Mr. Obama, who chose Mr. Biden as his vice-presidential running mate on Saturday, would not say how much the younger Mr. Biden, who works as both a lawyer and lobbyist in Washington, had received, though a company official had once described him as having a $100,000 a year retainer. But Obama aides said he had never lobbied for MBNA and that there was nothing improper about the payments.
Campaign officials acknowledged that the connection between the Bidens and MBNA, the enormous financial services company then based in their home state of Delaware, was one of the most sensitive issues they examined while vetting the senator for a spot on the ticket.

Tom Brokaw calling out Joe-Hunter Biden’s corruption in 2008:
“Wasn’t it inappropriate for someone like you in the middle of all this to have your son collecting money from this big credit card company while you were on the floor protecting its interests?” pic.twitter.com/CORqFD6w1a

But now, despite mounting evidence to support Biden’s family being corrupt, the Media(D) have locked their shields and formed a defensive circle around Joe.
It’s almost as if they are more interested in preserving his legacy than they are defending the truth.
What a sad admission to make about the ‘Journalist’ class today.
Now if we could only figure out why the ratings for these ‘news’ shows keep sinking like a sunset.
