Some of the largest media outlets in the United States have not reported on Hunter Biden’s repeated use of the N-word in text messages to his lawyer.

The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and MSNBC have all stayed silent on the matter, according to searches of their respective websites.

Biden’s texts were revealed earlier this week by the Daily Mail and showed President Joe Biden’s son casually using the racial slur in correspondence with his lawyer, George Mesires.

“How much money do I owe you?” Biden asked Mesires, who is white, in one exchange on Dec. 13, 2018, before adding, “Becaause n**** you better not be charging me Hennessy rates.”


"I only love you because you're black,” he wrote in another text, followed by “true dat n****” in a conversation about unconditional love, which was followed by jokes about his penis.

"God loves unconditionally. Beau loves you unconditionally. Children are too young to understand what it means. But you will show them. There are ideals of unconditional love that serve as proxies. I don't have many. You. God," Mesires said in the conversation.

Biden responded, "OMG n**** did you just a fictional character from the imagination of the collective frightened and my dead brothers unconditional love is what I should rely on and my kids aren't children George."

His use of the slur and the media’s silence on the matter sparked the ire of conservative commentators, as well as the sons of former President Donald Trump.

“They would lose their damn minds. It would be the No. 1 story on CNN, MSNBC, and the usual outlets for weeks straight,” Donald Trump Jr. told Breitbart when asked how the media would respond if he had used such a word.

“Don Lemon, Yamiche [Alcindor], all of the usual suspects would go nuts, but amazingly, they are 100% silent on this,” he continued.

Eric Trump also slammed Biden over the texts, saying that he is “praised by the media” despite the racist language and other controversial incidents.

“Hunter Biden smokes crack, uses horrible racist rhetoric, and sells his father’s influence around the world to enrich himself, yet he is praised by the media while writing books titled Beautiful Things,” he added. “Give me a break.”

Others echoed the former president's sons on social media, with some remarking that private citizens have been canceled for making similar remarks, yet the president's son gets a free pass.


The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and MSNBC did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner’s requests for comment.
