For those of you on the far left, including some journalism professors at IU, who say “what leftist media bias” here is another one that there is no way that you can dismiss, just like the story about how Obama’s chief of staff got $320,000 from Freddie Mac and ABC, CBS and NBC thought you didn’t need to know and offered no coverage at all – LINK.
Everyone knows how the media went insane reporting UNTRUE and hurtful rumors that Sarah Palin’s son Trig, was not hers and was birthed in secret by the governor’s daughter Bristol. Then when Bristol Palin did get pregnant with her long time boyfriend Levi Johnson the elite media went insane on reporting every available and in some cases invented details about Bristol Palin’s web site. Of course reporting about Michelle Obama’s radical comments and activist past ceased when Obama said to lay off the families; of course that only counts for Democrats as the elite media continued to savage Bristol Palin in an obvious attempt to cause so much pain in her family to push Governor Palin to step down. The NY Times even published four page one stories on Bristol Palin’s sex life on the same day.
In January the Anchorage Daily News, who is often unfair to Governor Palin, was still “investigating” weather Trig was “really Bristol’s baby” – LINK.
Let us also not forget that NBC suspended an anchor for making a crack about Chelsea Clinton.
While all this was happening there was almost no elite media coverage of the legal and ethical problems of Joe Biden’s son Hunter, who is accused in two lawsuits of hedge funds fraud. We reported it way back on September 2nd (LINK) and Fox News covered the story in February (LINK).
The double standard is obvious and in our view deliberate. Now the NY Post is reporting that there is a film showing Ashley Biden doing cocaine. They are also reporting that Ashley Biden has a record of being a “party girl” and was arrested for marijuana in 1999. Funny how we are just finding out about that arrest now instead of during the campaign.
Radar Online first reported the story on March 28:
An explosive video being shopped to media outlets has plunged the White House and Vice President Joe Biden into a cocaine scandal, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The video shows a woman, who is represented by the seller and his attorneys to be Biden’s daughter Ashley, snorting several lines of cocaine.
The tape has been viewed by a RadarOnline.com freelance reporter who confirms the woman looks identical to Ashley Biden.
Tom Dunlap, an attorney for Dunlap, Grubb and Weaver in Washington D.C. is representing the seller of the tape in brokering a deal and several news organizations have seen the footage.
In addition to RadarOnline.com, representatives for the New York Post, a large British newspaper and the National Enquirer have all viewed the tape.
The woman on the tape clearly resembles Ashley Biden, 27, who is a social worker employed with the Delaware Department of Children, Youth and Families. She is also a board member of the Delaware YWCA organization.
The tape was shot this year.
Radar Online updated the story saying that the tape was made by one of the people supplying her with the cocaine – LINK.
A “friend” of Vice President Joseph Biden’s daughter, Ashley, is attempting to hawk a videotape that he claims shows her snorting cocaine at a house party this month in Delaware.
The anonymous male acquaintance of Ashley took the video, said Thomas Dunlap, a lawyer representing the seller.
…The lawyers declined to name the person who shot the video, but said he knew Ashley well and had attended other parties with her at which there were illegal drugs.
The New York Post updated the story (LINK) reporting:
A decade before a friend came forward trying to sell a video that he claimed showed her snorting cocaine, Vice President Joseph Biden’s daughter was busted for pot possession.
Ashley Biden “was a hot freshman that every guy wanted to be with,” said Nat Berman, a Tulane University classmate, who said he bailed Ashley out of jail after her 1999 marijuana arrest in New Orleans, for which no conviction was recorded.
“She was very attractive.
“Everybody at Tulane knew that she was a party girl,” Berman said. “She wore some pretty short shorts — a lot.”
Berman, 30, wrote on his blog, Uncoached.com, after Joseph Biden’s election as vice president last November about Ashley’s partying.
Berman told The Post that Ashley — currently a social worker at a Delaware child-welfare agency — called him in September 1999 to say she was “on her way over” to his off-campus home “to hang out.”
An hour or so later, after she didn’t show up, Berman said he received a call from Ashley, who “said she was in jail.”
“She was freaking out. She was like, ‘I’m in this cell,’ ” Berman recalled. “She was not happy.”
Berman said he paid a bail bondsman “between $200 and $400″ to bail Ashley out, and then drove her home.
Well well well elite media… what a story that the elite media decided that you didn’t need to know and still thinks that you don’t need to know because after this story being out for three days, ABC, CBS, and NBC have no coverage of this story. The links go to screen shots of searches of their news sites, but it gets better, when you search for this story on NBC news’ web site it brings up a picture of Bristol Palin.
For the record, we take no pleasure in the outing of Ashley Biden’s issues. She is a children’s social worker and is doing cocaine, so this woman needs help and she needs it now and until she gets over this problem and acts more responsible, around children is exactly where Ashley Biden does not belong. The elite media’s gross double standard and hateful actions against Governor Palin’s family forces us to report this story.
