The broadcast network morning and evening news shows devoted precisely zero seconds to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee’s stunning interim report detailing the Biden family’s corrupt influence-peddling operation, according to a Newsbusters analysis of the Big Three networks’ news coverage.
On Wednesday, the Republican-led panel released bank records showing that the Biden family and their business associates received more than $10 million from foreign entities.
During a press conference yesterday to discuss the report, Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) noted that many of these wire transfers occurred while Joe Biden was Vice President “leading the United States’ efforts in those countries.”
The panels’ findings include a $1 million payment to the Biden family’s coffers from a ‘corrupt’ Romanian oligarch while then-vice president Joe Biden was lecturing the country on ethics.
These serious charges were entirely ignored by ABC, CBS, and NBC during their Wednesday evening and Thursday morning shows, Fox News reported.

In a fair and unbiased media environment, stories detailing the Biden family’s corruption, Hunter Biden’s laptop and his paternity case in Arkansas would be dominating the network news every night.
In just the past week, multiple stories about the Biden family’s corruption have broken elsewhere in the media.
The House Weaponization Committee revealed on May 10 that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved with the Biden campaign efforts to disseminate a false narrative in the media to discredit the Hunter Biden laptop scandal ahead of the 2020 election.
It was also recently revealed that the Hunter Biden laptop letter signed by 51 intel experts ahead of the 2020 election had the nakedly political motive of providing a “talking point to push back on” Donald Trump if he brought up the issue during the last presidential debate. Several of the letter’s signatories were given jobs in the Biden Administration, according to recent reports.
On May 9, RealClearPolitics reported on Senator Ron Johnson’s bombshell claim that there is proof that Hunter was involved in an international sex trafficking ring.
The New York Post’s Miranda Devine reported on May 7 that Hunter Biden’s former best friend Devon Archer was urged in a Manhattan court this week to “spill dirt” on the Biden family’s influence-peddling operation to avoid jail.
Hunter’s advisers were clashing with the Biden White House over his legal defense strategy amid the ongoing congressional and federal investigations into his financial affairs, the NY Post reported on May 5.
Last week, Comer accused Hunter Biden’s lawyers of “testing the limits” of witness intimidation in the Republican-led investigation into the Biden Family’s influence-peddling operation. The Oversight Chairman said witnesses and subpoenaed individuals cooperating with their probe have told his staff that Biden’s attorneys have inappropriately contacted them with veiled threats about their own potential liability in regard to the Biden clan’s shady business schemes.
And on May 3, Oversight Chair issued a Congressional subpoena demanding that the FBI produce an unclassified record alleging a criminal bribery scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national.
The networks have also been ignoring Hunter Biden’s appalling paternity case with Lunden Roberts, 32, a former stripper with whom he had a month-long affair.
On May 1, Hunter was forced to appear in Batesville, Arkansas for a court hearing on his disgraceful battle to reduce child-support payments for his 4-year old daughter Navy Joan, whom the entire Biden family refuses to acknowledge.
Amid all these scandalous stories, according to Newsbusters, the big three networks haven’t “uttered Hunter’s name in 18 days,” with the exception of CBS correspondent Major Garrett’s snide remark on May 11, following the CNN Townhall with former President Trump, that all Trump “talks about is Hunter Biden’s laptop.”
In response to this report, the House Oversight Committee commented that the corporate media are “more interested in covering up the truth than exposing it.”
In a statement to American Greatness, an Oversight Committee Spokesperson said: “The mainstream media’s refusal to cover the Oversight Committee’s bombshell findings about the Biden family’s influence peddling scheme and network of shell corporations reveals they are more interested in covering up the truth than exposing it. We will keep pressing forward in this investigation and continue to provide the American people with the evidence we uncover.”
