US President Joe Biden is increasingly in trouble because of his son’s questionable dealings. The fact that leading media are only now taking the story seriously raises questions.
Anyone who tuned in to the Fox News television station or the New York Post tabloid shortly before the 2020 US presidential election was only confronted with one topic: it was about a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, the son of current President Joe Biden. Documents on this notebook were intended to show how corrupt the Biden family was. On the other hand, anyone who watched CNN or read the Washington Post only heard about this story in passing, and it was mostly dismissed as dubious. The media, like American society, lived in two parallel worlds whose only contact was limited to mutual hostilities. Nothing changed about that.
