Nothing says "bipartisan" in Faux propaganda like like calling SCHIFF/SWALWELL "jokesters"

So (me) in the car on errands yesterday, the local radio wingnut talk station was running KILMEADE. It only takes a couple of minutes to nail the wingnut propaganda point of the day. And it was a breathless rendition that “an IRS whistleblower” speaking through his lawyer, Mark LYTLE, has impeccable credentials as a non-political and decades-long IRS agent and is in the process of negotiating whistleblower status and protections before risking testifying to his allegations of political interference from BIDEN and GARLAND (and BLINKEN?) in the Hunter BIDEN investigations. Included in the audio clips were references to John SOLOMON, and it wasn’t clear whether the offending (my) paraphrase here came from the attorney or from SOLOMON, but it was all about how this proto-whistleblower had NO/ZERO partisan prejudice, that he is willing and eager to testify in front of bipartisan committees, including “Schiff, Swalwell, and all those jokesters!”

Yeah, nothing says bipartisan like assigning “jokesters” to Democratic members. I could name scores of despicable, *actual* CLOWNS on the wingnut side of things just off the top of my head.


IRS agent alleges Hunter Biden probe is being mishandled

…. Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, recently reviewed financial transactions by members of the Biden family that were flagged for attention. Those financial reports are routine, with larger financial transactions automatically flagged to the government, and are not evidence on their own of misconduct.

But Comer, who has been leading the various probes into Hunter Biden, said the whistleblower letter is further evidence of the importance of congressional inquiry into the president and his family.

“It’s deeply concerning that the Biden Administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations,” Comer said in a statement Thursday.

John F. Solomon

is an American journalist who was a contributor to Fox News until late 2020.[1][2][3][4] He was formerly an executive and editor-in-chief at The Washington Times.[5]

Although he won a number of awards (including the 2008 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award) for his investigative journalism, in recent years he has been accused of magnifying small scandals, creating fake controversy,[6][7][8] and advancing conspiracy theories.[1][3][9] During the Donald Trump presidency, he advanced Trump-friendly stories including questioning reporting that women who had accused Trump of sexual harassment had also sought payments from partisan political donors[10] and questioning the legitimacy of criminal charges against Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.[11]

He also played an important role in advancing conspiracy theories about unproven allegations of wrongdoing in Ukraine by Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. Solomon's stories about the Bidens influenced Trump's fruitless attempt to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy into publicly launching an investigation into the elder Biden, an attempt that led to Trump's first impeachment.[4] ....

In 2007, Deborah Howell, then-ombudsman at The Washington Post, criticized a story that Solomon wrote for The Post which had suggested impropriety by Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards in a real estate purchase; Solomon's reporting omitted context which would have made clear that there was no impropriety.[6] Progressive news outlets ThinkProgress, Media Matters for America and Crooked Media have argued that Solomon's reporting has a conservative bias and that there are multiple instances of inaccuracies.[52][53][54] According to The Intercept, Just Security and The Daily Beast, Solomon helps to advance right-wing and pro-Trump conspiracy theories.[30][9][55] The New Republic described Solomon's columns for The Hill as "right-wing fever dreams."[56] Independent journalist Marcy Wheeler accused Solomon of manufacturing fake scandals which suggested wrongdoing by those conducting probes into Russian interference in the 2016 election.[57] Reporters who worked under Solomon as an editor have said that he encouraged them to bend the truth to fit a pre-existing narrative.[8] ....

(UTUSN says, pic of the so-impartial (sic, sarcasm) SOLOMON: )
