Media lefties are gonna be media lefties, I suppose, even if they do have interesting things to report on Trump v Xi in Chaos under Heaven. In our 2nd post about that book, Chaos under Covid, I mentioned some that I'd write about something in that book's Epilogue I didn't agree with. Well, the book has got to go back to the 'brary, so I'll just write about the one thing that pissed me off the most in Josh Rogin's description of China and Election '20.
Regarding the election, the author seems to be completely on Joe Biden's side even as he admits that the CCP wished for a Biden win, so they could deal with a more predictable American President. This excerpt is from the bottom of page 290, in which the author discusses the alleged damning Hunter Biden material from a computer hard drive found in a shop in Delaware:
The Hunter Biden material was Bannon and Giuliani's "October suprise" -- their attempt to introduce new information to the presidential contest that would tip the scales toward Trump, as they believed that FBI director James Comey's revelation about Anthony Weiner's laptop (and its hard drive containing Hillary Clinton's emails) had done in the run-up to the 2016 election. But this latest laptop gambit ended up falling flat because most of the mainstream media refused to cover it, still feeling burned after being used as a tool of Russian email hacking and dumping during the 2016 election cycle.Oh, where to start with this stupidity, where to start? The media refuses to cover things when they don't go along with their agenda. The Lyin' Press was shocked that Donald Trump won the '16 election, and they didn't want anything like that to happen again. Trump was supposed to lose, so therefore the Hunter Biden story was not covered. In fact the
The media "got burned" by the Russia, Russia, Russia!! story? Seriously? The Lyin' Press kept this story on for 3 out of the 4 years of the Trump Presidency, only stopping to spend more time
What a stupid attempt at deflecting the reader from the agenda of the Lyin' Press by writer Josh Rogin. Oh, the media felt burned from getting suckered to run 3 years of "the Russians did it", so they didn't want to be "wrong again" by covering the Hunter Biden/Chinese honey-pot story. Yeah, sure that's the ticket. Just expose yourself as a ctrl-left Lyin' Press hack back there in the Epilogue. That way, it's too late for the reader to return the book to the store. This one goes back to the library today. It's overdue anyway.
