'Waste Of Time': NPR Refuses To Cover Biden Scandal

NPR Managing Editor Terence Samuels has issued a statement on why the network refuses to cover the Hunter Biden scandal - claiming that it's a 'waste of time' and a 'pure distraction.'

NPR claims that the New York Post investigation into the Bidens has "many red flags" and note that "Intelligence officials warn that Russia has been working overtime to keep the story of Hunter Biden in the spotlight."

Even if Russia can’t be positively connected to this information, the story of how Trump associates Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani came into a copy of this computer hard drive has not been verified and seems suspect. And if that story could be verified, the NY Post did no forensic work to convince consumers that the emails and photos that are the basis for their report have not been altered. -NPR

"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," said Samuels. "And quite frankly, that's where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way."

Except, NPR, we now have two ex-business associates of Hunter Biden who have gone on-record with direct email and text evidence that Joe Biden was directly involved in Hunter's business dealings, and appears to have pimped out the office of the Vice Presidency to enrich his family.

According to NPR, this is a 'waste of time.'

They will, however, peddle debunked rumors from anonymous sources.
