Tucker Carlson's interview last night, keep in mind that his show is essentially immune from slander and libel due to a federal court's ruling that his show is not, in fact, news. His bosses at FOX provided this very defense to the courts to protect themselves from getting sued.

You could go so far as to say that what occurs on his show is in fact legally considered "fake news."

Good thing because Tucker was only asking the question and Mr. Tony Bobulinski was giving the answers. Were the questions lies? I guess this is a little confusing.

Lakebum,

It is a common understanding within political circles that sometimes the best way to kill a story (fire) is to deprive it of oxygen (attention). Any response to a bullyshitt story just keeps it in the news cycle longer.

For the sake of argument, let's assume Joe Biden is pure as the wind driven snow. Purer than even Dean Smith. Why was Hunter Biden the recipient of deals that garnered him tons of money from regions that he had no significant knowledge of and in an industry(energy) that he had scant knowledge? Would you at least acknowledge it was probably an attempt to buy influence? Even Hunter is on record stating he probably would not have been the beneficiary of the deals he was involved in were his last name not Biden. Hunter's dad may not have known a thing, but there is more than a little whiff of possible impropriety.

-Because Trump gets massive support from white supremacists, and throughout his career, when asked about how he feels about it, he dances around it. There's actual evidence there.

-People shouldn't have to answer for every ridiculous and specious claim made up against them. Like Obama and birth certificates.

-That same point above was argued about Trump and Russia. Tu quo que doesn't look good.

-Same point was argued about Kavanaugh, and I agreed on that point.

The other reason Trump gets asked repeatedly about white supremacists is because he intentionally makes BS ambiguous statements like "stand back and stand by." He can be that sort of troll if he wants, but guess what, deal with the press asking about the trolling.

Personally I don't necessarily believe Trump is a racist. He does, however, channel a racist theme to appeal to much of his base on a very consistent basis. It's part of his sales pitch.

The "you ain't black" comment was horrendous.

So... what did Biden do after that? Did he double down? Make it worse? Insist that he never said it?
No, he didn't do any of the troll crap that Trump does.

Here's what Biden said afterwards:
"The bottom line of all of this perhaps I was much too cavalier. I know that the comments have come off like I was taking the African American vote for granted but nothing could be further from the truth. I've never, ever done that and I've earned it every time I've run. I was making the point that I never take the vote for granted and in fact I know in order to win the presidency, I need the African American vote. I shouldn't have been such a wise guy. I shouldn't have been so cavalier."

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/22/us/politics/joe-biden-black-breakfast-club.html


All Trump has to do is say, "The bottom line is that 'stand back and stand by' wasn't a clear denunciation, because it came off like I was telling white supremacists to stand by, not stand down. I meant to tell them to stand down, that I denounce their beliefs unequivocally. I shouldn't have ever suggested that they stand by."

It really is, enough with the white supremacist boogie man.

This does not seem like a ridiculous claim to me. Correct me if I'm wrong, but nothing Tony Bobulinski has said or the documents he's provided have been denied. Those documents were not what Tucker Carlson hilariously tried to claim were lost. Specifically the text where Rob Walker explained to Tony that Hunter Biden's 'chairman' was, in fact, Joe Biden seem fairly damning.

I mean, why not ask the questions? Why won't somebody else interview Tony Bobulinksi and poke some holes in his story? Should be easy enough to do. They've got the time to hyper analyze and critique every single move Trump makes, but I guess Joe gets a pass.

I'm amazed that the same people who believe Trump's contacts with Russia were "fake" and a "hoax" and that the Mueller Report was a "witch hunt" somehow believe everything they hear about the Derptober Surprise. Probably best to look at the facts after it's done being presented for the obvious purpose of screwing with an election.

Right, and after that you realized that Biden is a better politician because he admits his mistakes and addresses them. Which explains why it's not about hilarious media bias, it's about the ability for a politician to admit reality and address the facts.

First of all, I'm not aware of any reliable outlets or actual journalists outlets having access to the documents. My understanding is that the tabloid NY Post received them, and I guess Tucker Carlson? If Rudy Giuliani wants to have actual reporting on this idiocy, he can give the documents to actual journalists.

If they were to treat them equal, they'd have to hound Joe for 3-4 more years about the statement, regardless of whether he admitted his mistake or not. And I know you're trying to pretend the "stand by" comment was made like 3 years ago, but it wasn't, and the 'white supremacy' questions had been going on long before that comment, despite numerous condemnations by Trump.

Many of the documents I'm talking about have been made public. A Senate committee has them. So far they're saying they're legit. For the 100000000000th time, what I'm talking about is separate from the laptop.

This is where we seem to have a disconnect.

You think the press is hounding Trump just because they have some anti-Trump bias. What I'm saying, and I think you agreed, is that Biden doesn't do the dumb Trump #### that gets Trump in trouble.

Why would they hound Biden after Biden apologizes and says he shouldn't have said that? Show me where Trump apologized and said he shouldn't have said that. If Biden had said,"What are you talking about, I didn't say 'you ain't Black,' that's fake news, it's a Republican hoax," and the press didn't hound him about it, THEN you'd have a point. But you seem to think that Trump shouldn't be held responsible for his own statements, and that flat-out denials of reality should be as acceptable to journalists as Biden's acknowledgement of his mistake and apology.

And I know you're trying to pretend the "stand by" comment was made like 3 years ago, but it wasn't,

What are you talking about? He just said that, like last month!

I don't think it's an anti-Trump bias, I think it's an anti-Republican bias. Evidence of which can be seen in every Presidential election and tenure. I know we like to pretend we could just go back to the good ole days of George Bush, but I remember him being a horrible racist at the time. Mitt Romney too.

You're focusing on a statement made 1-2 months ago, as if he wasn't being hounded by those questions repeatedly for years already. He repeatedly denounced white supremacy, and still got hounded with the questions. For years.

I'm trying to find them myself. It would be nice if we could have a few actual journalist to provide them. All I can find is that they were given to the Senate, and "a number of media outlets". I would think people obsessed with foreign interference would be interested in going through them, guess not.

terribly botched rollout and introduction of the "Hunter Biden Laptop" source - the shady and now apparently swept under the rug origins of the whole matter from the Delaware repair shop. The DNI's comments about the laptop not being a "Russian disinformation" plot actually skips over the likelihood that Russian-aligned hackers accessed files illegally (not disinformation) to begin with from a different source, while Rudy and whatever campaign assistance he had available concocted the plant of the source on a laptop to get them into the public light, via Trump supporter and foreign national Rupert Murdoch. And again, it's a Rupert Murdoch fake news program that is trying to keep it all alive, a program that is immune from being sued for spreading false information.

Sadly, even if there is any legitimacy to any of the interviewees claims, the process leading up was so Keystone Kops bad that it's simply a non-issue for the non Ever Trumpers.

legitimate news organizations are not following up on a story assembled and promoted by non-journalists, Rupert Murdoch-aligned non-journalists at that, no. Especially considering the origins and timing. If the whole thing had been orchestrated better from the get-go it might have had a chance to gain traction. If anything, this should serve as an example at how inept Trump and his circle are at managing events effectively, and how shady his operatives are, which it very well may be doing for many undecided voters here in the homestretch.
