The American Mainstream Media, including National Public Radio (NPR), is taking a massive blow to their credibility. Simultaneously, people scramble to new independent social media sites to view the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, and one US Rep is blasting NPR over it. 

“You can’t have it both ways – you can’t choose to report on the FAKE Steele dossier and not the REAL Hunter Biden scandal. If you think you can have it both ways, you deserve to operate on your own dime,” Duncan wrote. 

According to FOX News,” Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., sent a scathing letter to NPR president and CEO John Lansing on Friday, condemning the nonprofit media organization for admitting it wouldn’t cover the ongoing scandal surrounding a laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden. “

In Duncan’s letter, he wrote: 

“Your organization is among a whole host of mainstream media outlets that have proven not to be dedicated to reporting unbiased news to the American people. While other outlets do not receive taxpayer funds, NPR does. Because of such willful neglect, NPR should not receive another cent from the taxpayers,” Duncan wrote. 

Earlier in the day Duncan’s letter was released, an NPR public editor Kelly McBride explained that her organization decided there are “many, many red flags in that New York Post investigation” that unearthed a laptop allegedly owned by Hunter Biden that contained damning emails, texts, and photos and suggested Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had knowledge of and was allegedly involved in, his son’s dubious foreign business dealings. 

Currently, numerous independent media sources are dropping images from the Laptop to validate the emails. 

The emails from the same hard drive as the shocking photos expose many corrupt and illegal business dealings between the Biden family and foreign governments, especially the Chinese Communist Party of China. 

Duncan Posted on Twitter that he was being censored: 

Former Alabama Senator, Phil Williams, wrote in reaction, “”While other outlets do not receive taxpayer funds, NPR does. Because of such willful neglect, NPR should not receive another cent from the taxpayers,” Duncan wrote” #Election2020 #alpolitics #BidenLaptopMatters

A reader of NPR wrote in support, “I totally agree with this. If NPR doesn’t find this story newsworthy then they shouldn’t be propped up by our tax payer dollars. This has to stop! Rep. Duncan blasts NPR in scathing letter over Hunter Biden blackout.”

THE LETTER CONTINUES:

“Your organization stated that they would not be reporting on the Biden family’s corrupt business dealings because they find the reporting, emails, text messages, and corroborating witness statements to be a ‘distraction.’ Distraction is an interesting word choice since it does not call the Biden news illegitimate or fake,” Duncan continued. “Rather, NPR is fully admitting its legitimacy and is choosing to bow out and exclaim ‘distraction’ since the news is devastating to the Biden campaign and the leftist cause.” 

Fox News wrote, “Duncan accused NPR of not reporting news that would hurt the Democrats since the 2016 presidential election.”

Duncan then said, “It’s been clear since the 2016 election that NPR will not report on anything that would hurt Democrats, in an effort to try and defeat President Trump.” 

The Post rocked the political world last Wednesday with an initial report that revealed a 2015 email Hunter Biden allegedly received from a member of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, who appeared to thank him for “giving an opportunity” to meet his father, then-Vice President Biden. 

The former vice president had long claimed that he did not talk to his son about his business dealings, but evidence from the laptop seems to contradict that point. Additional allegations related to the laptop have since come out, including an email that appeared to detail a business arrangement involving a Chinese company and members of the Biden family — but NPR won’t cover any of it and much of the media has gone to great lengths to avoid reporting on the scandal. 

“Just because NPR finds the Biden news a distraction doesn’t mean it isn’t real. Any true journalist would seek to expose the truth, comb through the documents, and report on the corroborating evidence – not call it quits,” he continued. “The news and corroborating emails and texts surrounding Joe and Hunter Biden will have vast implications on our country should the former Vice President win the election. If Vice President Biden was beholden to China when he served in the White House, how could the American people ever trust him again? Our nation deserves outlets that report the news – not outlets who believe they are the arbiter of truth.
