Imagine you are the Los Angeles Times assignment editor last week and you find out that despite pledges that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, would have no contact with the people buying his art, he would be rubbing shoulders with them at his glitzy art show in Hollywood. Eric Garcetti from Los Angeles, who has been denied the nomination to be the ambassador for India in the Senate, would also attend the event. After considering all the details, the editor decides that no one will be sent to report on this rule-breaking event.
If that sounds absurd, the reason is because it is obvious the Times went to extreme lengths to avoid reporting on a situation embarrassing to Democrats. The U.K. provided some excellent reporting about the Hunter Biden show of art. Daily Mail. The extended title on their Wednesday story alone reveals the blatant ethics breach of that art show: “EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden is seen hanging out with star-studded potential buyers of his half-million-dollar art at LA’s Milk Studios debut show, despite White House claims he will have no idea who is buying his pieces.”
The Times assignment editor would have allowed him to break the Democrat protection barrier, but it wouldn’t be an exclusive story. Let us now read the details, as the Times failed in its obvious task. Daily MailThis is:
Hunter Biden attended his first art exhibition for potential buyers and celebrity guests including World Champion boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, Moby, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and the artist behind Barack Obama’s iconic Hope poster – despite White House claims the president’s son will have no idea who is buying his pieces.
Video and photos exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com show Hunter and his gallery manager Georges Bergès entertaining around 200 people at the famous Milk studios in Hollywood on Friday, including his wife Melissa and two of his daughters, 27-year-old Naomi Biden and Maisy Biden, 20.
The tightly controlled event attracted around 200 people. It was attended by a number of celebrities from Los Angeles and prospective buyers for Hunter’s artwork, which has a price range of $75,000 to $500,000.
The Mayor Garcetti bought a piece Hunter’s artwork for $75,000 to $500,000 You don’t have to wait for the announcement. Los Angeles TimesFind out more.
Ex-White House ethics chiefs have raised serious concerns about the amount of money spent on these works, which is unhearded for debuting artists. They fear that it could be used to make proxy political donations, or even curry favor with President Joe Biden.
Did Mayor Garcetti purchase a Hunter Biden masterpiece again?
Hunter’s pieces would be considered untrained or debuting art, according to critics. They also believe his name significantly increases their value.
Ex-White House ethics chiefs raised concerns about buyers trying to gain influence over the president through buying his son’s work at inflated prices.
All except for the Los Angeles Times I am still curious to know if India’s desperately seeking ambassador now has a piece from the Hunter Biden collection.
