Much like the Hunter Biden stories and misdeeds and crimes (and Joe Biden’s also) the Media has been deliberately not reporting on politicians and their actions that they feel they need to hide….
See this Daily Mail extract about the late, (mostly unlamented) Ted Kennedy and the coverups (plural) that the Media did for him over the years.
They have been hiding the deeds of their “approved” politicians longer than I have been alive.
The Internet has just made it harder for them to hide all of it. But it continues to this day…..and they don’t even try to hide their actions any more.
