J.D. Vance supports notion of investigating media bias

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) said Sunday that there’s a need to “look seriously” at “collusion” between the press, tech companies and America’s national security apparatus, after an aide to former President Donald Trump promised to “come after” members of the media he claimed helped President Joe Biden “rig” elections.

“We will go out and find the conspirators not just in government but in the media — Yes, we’re going to come after the people in the media who lied about American citizens, who helped Joe Biden rig presidential elections — we’re going to come after you,” the aide, Kash Patel, said on Steve Bannon’s podcast last week.

When asked about those comments Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Vance pointed to theories often trumpeted by the those on the right about a laptop from Hunter Biden that, among other things, held emails detailing Hunter Biden’s business dealings, which a New York Post report claimed showed corruption by Joe Biden.
