NYT slammed after they ignore Hunter Biden's use of the N-word but pillory Morgan Wallen
Amidst news of President Joe Biden's meeting with British monarch Queen Elizabeth as part of the G-7 summit, a media outlet has slammed the New York Times in a scathing article, accusing the publication of being biased towards the Biden administration. Writing for OutKick, the outlet's founder and political commentator Clay Travis accused NYT, among other media outlets, of not focusing enough on Hunter's alleged use of the n-word in celebratory text conversations with his attorney.
Travis asks what if the tables were turned and it was one of Trump's sons instead, being accused of using the racial slur. Claiming "blatant media hypocrisy and dishonesty", Travis put popular conventional media on blast, alleging that Hunter even bragged about how the media wasn't "covering him extensively".
The 300-word opinion piece titled 'HUNTER BIDEN’S N-BOMBS ILLUMINATE MEDIA’S POLITICAL DOUBLE STANDARDS', was shared on Travis's website around some time between 9 am and 10 am on Sunday, June 13. The allegations come after the Daily Mail reported the leaked text conversations of Hunter. The journalist opens his attack, noting: "Hunter Biden, the president’s son, used the n-word several times in text conversations with his $800 dollar an hour attorney to celebrate the fact that the media wasn’t covering his latest failures very aggressively."
Travis then drops the bombshell: "As I write this column the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and CNN have not covered the story at all. Whatever you think of Hunter Biden, or politics in general, this is a perfect example of blatant media hypocrisy and dishonesty. Consider, for just a moment, what these four media outlets would have done if one of Donald Trump’s sons had used the n-word in a text conversation with his $800 dollar an hour attorney. And if he’d been bragging about how the media wasn’t covering him extensively and thanking the attorney for his work in keeping the discussion of his latest transgressions to a minimum in the public sphere."
Addressing popular media, Travis further continued: "One of Trump’s sons using the n-word would have led the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and the CNN for a week or more, potentially a month. It would have never totally disappeared. There would have been calls for congressional investigations into the matter, White House media would have peppered President Trump with questions on the issue for months."
He reiterated: "Yet Hunter Biden uses the n word and there’s near total and complete silence from some of the largest media outlets in our country. The truth is that based on the media silos many of us now live in, many, if not most, of these media outlet’s readers and viewers will not ever see the Hunter Biden story at all." Sharing a link to his article on Twitter, Travis wrote in a caption: "The @nytimes wrote 14 different articles about Morgan Wallen’s use of the n word. They wrote eight different articles about Kyle Larson’s use of the n word. They’ve written zero about Hunter Biden’s use of the n word. On media failures. Read this:"
It is not just Travis, however, expressing outrage over the alleged media bias, like the articles, since shared on Twitter, has garnered quite the traction as well. Agreeing with Travis, one user asked: "How can anyone still pretend that there's no media bias?" Another chimed in, saying: "It’s not “failures” it’s corruption". One user slammed the other media outlets and applauded Travis, tweeting: "The NY Times and the mainstream media are a joke." And another user blamed the left, saying: "If the left didn't have double standards then they wouldn't have any".

Great article & on point. The NY Times and the mainstream media are a joke. I am from Massachusetts & my whole life I have voted Democrat. This pandemic changed that as I now see thru the propaganda & favoritism. I don’t like all Republicans either. They are all on the same team— Antwan0924 (@tbone924) June 13, 2021
