Media discovers that Hunter Biden's 'love child' is actually news

In the July 2, New York Times Sunday paper, they suddenly decided to put the story of Hunter Biden’s controversial four-year-old daughter on the bottom of the front page. 
The bizarre headline on a Katie Rogers piece: “Hunter Biden and the Politics of Paternity in the Media’s Glare.” There has been almost no media glare, at least inside the Democrat media bubble. They lament the story’s “ubiquity” in conservative media. 
The occasion for this sudden acknowledgment of reality was a child support settlement after a “yearslong court battle” — outside the media glare. Try finding any mention of the mother, Lunden Roberts, or the child, Navy Joan Roberts, in any “mainstream” media source.  


Searching for “Lunden Roberts” on the Times website gives you three results, two of them from articles posted in the last few days. The name “Lunden Roberts” doesn’t appear until six paragraphs into the article, and only five paragraphs were on the front page. 

Hunter Biden

The New York Times wrote a strange story how President Joe Biden won’t acknowledge his granddaughter, headlined: “Hunter Biden and the Politics of Paternity in the Media’s Glare.” (Getty images)

Roberts gave up her demand that her little girl, Navy Joan, have the Biden last name, and the Biden camp agreed to turn over a number of art pieces from Hunter’s “second career as a painter whose pieces have been offered for as much as $500,000 each.” This verbiage, apparently, is supposed to signal Biden generosity and not Biden corruption.  
The Times mourned that this was too political: “Both Hunter Biden, the privileged and troubled son of a president, and Ms. Roberts, the daughter of a rural gun maker, have allies whose actions have made the situation more politicized. There is no evidence the White House is involved in those actions.” 
It’s beyond ludicrous to assume that the Bidens aren’t involved in the politics of Hunter’s messes. But of course, “Democratic groups dedicated to helping the Biden family have disseminated information about Mr. (Garrett) Ziegler and the Roberts family, seeking to highlight their Trump ties.” 
Liberal journalists should acknowledge it’s natural that people wronged by the Bidens would be welcomed by the conservative media, just as Trump-haters (like angry niece Mary Trump) would be celebrated by the liberal media. 

Rogers quoted ex-GOP strategist Stuart Stevens to represent the viewpoint of journalists up until now, that focusing on the dissolute son is “just anger in search of an argument.”
