Nearly eight million people tuned in for a Fox News exclusive interview Tuesday with a former business associate of Hunter Biden who claims the Biden family ignored concerns Joe Biden’s alleged ties to his son’s business dealings could hurt his shot to become president.

Tucker Carlson host of Tucker Carlson Tonight sat down with retired U.S. Navy lieutenant  Tony Bobulinski who said he raised concerns to Jim Biden nearly three years ago about Joe Biden’s alleged ties to a possible joint venture with a Chinese energy firm. 

DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told the network that the story is getting the silent treatment on other mainstream networks. “Of course, there are lots of stories that need to be covered in the busy 2020 news agenda, but the total omission of Bobulinski’s accusations is curious, to say the least.”

Carlson’s interview with Bobulinski topped the heavily promoted season premiere of NBC’s “This Is Us” to finish as the No. 3 program in all of television on Tuesday, finishing behind only FOX’s World Series Game 6 and NBC’s “The Voice.” 

Nearly two million people in the “money demographic” of adults age 25-54, tuned in to the show. Tuesday’s show was Carlson’s most watched show of 2020.” “It is pretty much a 100 percent blackout of the Bobulinski story in the traditional media,” McCall said.

While CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post chose not to run the story, six-million people stuck around to watch Hannity following the blockbuster interview.

“Odds are that most mainstream media outlets are devoting very few reporting resources, if any, to the Bobulinski story,” McCall added. “It would seem those outlets could at least be investigating the accusations to try to prove them invalid.”Fox News’ primetime lineup finished October with the highest-rated month in cable news history – beating primetime TV heavyweights such as ABC’s “The Bachelorette” in the process.

According to the information, Newsmax will be tapping former Fox News chief D.C. correspondent James Rosen to take over the role.

Newsmax’s White House reporter Emerald Robinson could be counting her days with the network as The Daily Beast reports that there’s a replacement lined up to replace Robinson. 

According to the information, Newsmax will be tapping former Fox News chief D.C. correspondent James Rosen to take over the role. Rosen is currently a political reporter for Sinclair Broadcasting Group.

Twitter banned Robinson following a tweet regarding the COVID-19 vaccine stating that it carries a “bioluminescent” tracking device with satanic powers. As a result, the social media platform handed her a seven-day suspension.

The network would then pull her off any on-air duties, and then after her suspension was over it resulted in the permanent ban from Twitter. 

The Daily Beast spoke to a current staffer who stated that the consensus view amongst Newsmax employees is that “she’s just going to be gone” but “nothing definitive.” Another source told the media outlet that Robinson is almost unquestionably done with Newsmax. 

Furthermore, two sources also told The Daily Beast that Newsmax is negotiating with Rosen to become their new chief D.C. correspondent. “Unfortunately, we cannot comment on personnel issues,” a Newsmax spokesperson stated on the report.

The Twitter account to CBS Mornings was forced to delete a tweet last week calling Kyle Rittenhouse a “murderer.” 

Rittenhouse stands accused of murder and is currently on trial in connection with an incident that occurred during a Black Lives Matter protest last August. 

The tweet read, “Kyle Rittenhouse testified in his own murder trial yesterday, breaking down in tears as he told the jury he murdered two men at a Black Lives Matter protest last year in self-defense.”

Last week, Rittenhouse testified that he was running to put out a fire when a man named Joseph Rosenbaum allegedly ambushed him.

Rittenhouse claimed one man, Joshua Ziminski, walked toward him with a pistol while Rosenbaum was closing in on his right side.

Closing arguments in the trial are scheduled to begin on Monday.
