The White House Wants Fox to Retract Claims Made Against Joe, Hunter Biden

Since Joe Biden took office, Conservative media has been desperate to dig up dirt on him, mostly connected to his son, Hunter. They haven't found much by using credible sources, but that hasn't mattered. Lawmakers and media have been more than willing to parrot information from dubious sources. 

The White House is not taking the slander sitting down anymore. This week, special assistant to the President, Ian Sams, sent a letter to Fox. 

The message began, "I would cite the number of times Jesse Watters and Sean Hannity promoted this allegation and made false statements about President Biden on primetime television throughout this time period, but the footnote citations would fill multiple pages."

The letter continued, "As you of course now know, the source of this allegation has been federally indicted for making the whole thing up. Despite this, Fox has taken no steps to retract, correct, or update its reporting on this false allegation from 2023."

Fox responded to the letter in a statement to The Hill, which read in part:

"Fox News Media has reported on all key developments since the announcement that Alexander Smirnov was charged with lying to the FBI, featuring the story prominently. We will continue to report on developments in all aspects of the ongoing investigations, hearings, and trials."
