Breitbart: Joe Biden’s campaign is attempting to spin the narrative around his son’s work in Ukraine with a hastily created website as the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry continues to heat up.
The former vice president, who is already trying to salvage his foreign policy credentials after revelations about Hunter Biden’s wheeling and dealing overseas, launched a new website on Thursday to spin the narrative emanating from the inquiry.
The site, in particular, attempts to push back on allegations that Hunter Biden’s service on the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian oil and gas giant, intersected with the former vice president’s political influence in eastern Europe. To that end, the site aggregates news storiesfrom maistream media outlets such as NBC, ABC News, and The Washington Post portraying the Biden’s conduct as ethical—under a “facts” header.
The site, which is titled ‘Just the Facts, Folks proclaims:
There’s a lot of misinformation and lies out there, so welcome to the one stop shop for the facts about Joe Biden. Stay informed about the truth Trump and his special interests are trying to distract from.
Despite the lofty goal, the website has the appearance of a campaign ad rather than a fact sheet. Rather than addressing the alleged conflicts of interest between Hunter and Joe Biden head on, the site attempts to pass off the opinions of partisan figures, like former Obama administration speechwriter Jon Favreau, as “facts.” Added to the mix is that half the front page is devoted to television ads the Biden campaign has recently launched, most of which deal in generic campaign themes. read more
