NewsBusters Podcast: Is George Santos ‘the Gift That Keeps On Giving’?

Political News

The Democrats and their media allies are all abuzz at the possibility that they’ll reduce the tiny Republican majority in the House of Representatives by one. The House may vote to expel freshman Republican Rep. George Santos of New York. They love promoting this guy to make the GOP look bad. The late-night “comedians” recently offered 72 jokes about Santos, compared to only 45 about President Biden (and two for Sen. Bob “Gold Bars” Menendez.)

CBS Evening News was the only network show on Tuesday night that reported on the potential purge of Congressman Santos. Reporter Scott McFarlane also added a brief note on how Hunter Biden suddenly wants to testify publicly before the House Oversight Committee. The Comer committee sent a subpoena to Hunter to meet for a deposition in private, but Hunter wants a public spectacle. That would be good for us — in terms of studying how the media would cover or not cover it, live or not live. But Republicans must have a reason for their approach.

On ABC, late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel claimed the Republicans “don’t want it on TV. They’re like, ‘If we don’t do this behind closed doors, how are we supposed to make stuff up?'” Republicans didn’t make up the laptop, and the Democrats made up the story that it was disinformation from the Russians. Like a good Democrat, Kimmel claimed “Even though we’ve seen no evidence, and they’ve seen no evidence, that Joe Biden had anything to do with this…” The laptop establishes in emails and photographs that Joe Biden appeared repeatedly to meet his son’s lobbying clients. 

Nevertheless, MSNBC’s morning host Joe Scarborough mocked Chairman Comer on the same “no evidence” spin, but added the hillbilly routine: “Well, we ain’t really got nothin’ but a squirrel fryer and a hound dog.” Scarborough has said the Arnold the Pig character from Green Acres could do a better job than Comer.

On the PBS NewsHour, they asked NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith to analyze why President Biden isn’t getting any credit for his “economic accomplishments.” There’s no space for Republican rebuttal, just space for Keith to repeat the talking points she’s getting at the White House.
