The corporate media is freaking out because Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and top adviser to former President Donald Trump, is planning on launching an investment firm in the coming months.
The revelation came from an unnamed source who provided no details about potential investors. Despite the lack of information, countless members of the corporate media, like former Obama advisor and MSNBC contributor Ben Rhodes and Daily Beast and NBC News columnist Max Burns, are suggesting that Kushner’s new investment firm will result in unethical partnerships in Saudi Arabia and the United Emirates. Apparently helping to broker peace deals between the US and Middle Eastern countries has raised the left-wing media’s suspicions.
Watch the Saudi and Emirati money. https://t.co/bqVRmUpeBu

I'm sorry at what point was Jared Kushner “in” politics, he mostly seemed to just bum around the White House and help his Saudi pals murder journalists. https://t.co/6Yr8KhEPwo

Many corporate news outlets are suddenly very interested in Kushner’s new firm and jumping to conclusions about how his former White Houe position stands to benefit him financially, yet practically yawn at any news of the current president’s son doing the same. Indeed, it has recently been revealed that Hunter Biden is now a renowned artist, reportedly selling paintings for half $1 million dollars each.
Outlets like Reuters, The Hill, and The Guardian have not appeared to pursue the Hunter Biden news further than a general human interest story, and a search of The Guardian’s website shows they have yet to report on it at all.
Supposedly taking a break from monetizing foreign companies’ access to his father, Hunter has decided to focus his attention on painting. “For years I wouldn’t call myself an artist,” he told The New York Times, from his Los Angeles home and studio. “Now I feel comfortable saying it.”
Of course, It is obvious that Hunter’s art career is nothing more than a front for his “old” career, selling access to his dad.
“It’s the same career Hunter had before,” writes The Federalist’s Eddie Scary, “but this time instead of pretending he knows anything about the energy industry in Eastern Europe or finance in China, he gets to mix primary colors and call access to the highest levels of government ‘art.’ There is nothing remotely innocent about Biden’s ‘new career.’
To understand the media’s vastly differing reactions to these two stories, let’s explore the differences. Kushner is the son-in-law of the former president of the United States who has been stripped of a voice and kicked off of all the main social media platforms. Hunter is the son of the current president of the United States and the most powerful man on earth.
Before Trump was elected, Kushner was already a businessman who owns, among other businesses and investments, Cadre, an online real-estate investment platform. Hunter, on the other hand, has never been an artist (until now), and yet, at the beginning of his career, is selling, according to art critics, amateur work for prices comparable to only the most well-known artists.
Why then, is the media devoting its attention to Kushner and not Hunter? Because they have given up on any semblance of integrity and will do anything to help the Biden Administration, even if it means ignoring Hunter Biden entirely.
From multiple instances of racism, to his illegal gun purchase, and his many foreign business dealings selling access to his father, the corporate media has always turned a blind eye because they are not journalists, they are corrupt political moguls. The corporate media has decided it is more important for them to protect and defend, not the freedom of information, but a senile president and his corrupt son.
