WATCH: Tom Cotton Blasts Media, Big Tech for Covering Up Hunter Biden Stories

'You would think that most news organizations would be committed to breaking news...'

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., blasted Big Tech for censoring the stories about Hunter Biden and his shady foreign business deals, and called out the media for refusing to cover the recent revelations about the role Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden may have played in them.

During an interview with CNBC, Cotton pointed out that not one fact in the New York Post’s report about a laptop that allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden has been debunked.

The Biden campaign has even admitted that the laptop is likely authentic, he noted. Yet few news organizations are covering this story like the bombshell it is, he said.

“You would think that most news organizations would be committed to breaking news,” Cotton said. “That they would want to dig into it deeper, that they would want to explain exactly what they found, as opposed to doing what the Big Tech companies did—censor it—and most of the mainstream media trying to suppress it to the greatest extent they can until Nov. 3.”

The host of the interview, Andrew Ross Sorkin, then tried to claim that the media is trying to cover the Hunter Biden allegations, but is unable to corroborate them.

“So just to clarify, it is not that the news organizations are not looking into this, it’s that they haven’t been able to corroborate the story, and a responsible news organization wouldn’t therefore report it,” Sorkin argued.

But as Cotton pointed out, CNBC and most other mainstream media outlets gladly covered the Russian collusion hoax and the Steele dossier, neither of which were corroborated.

“You and outlets like CNN and the New York Times obsessively reported about the Steele Dossier, which was an obvious fabrication,” he said. “There’s a clear double standard here being applied to Donald Trump versus Joe Biden.”
