Major media outlets ignored the Post stories, and mainstream journalists cheered the moves by Twitter and Facebook, so ABC’s handling of the issue was unsurprising to those who had decried the censorship. Journalist Curtis Houck called the town hall “another example of censorship and collusion.”

Other observers saw the ignoring of the Hunter Biden issue as part of ABC’s overall kid-gloves treatment of Biden and contrasted it with the town hall that NBC hosted with President Donald Trump. “They spoke to him (Biden) like a toddler; meanwhile, Trump was attacked,” one commenter said. Another Twitter user said, “There could be a side-by-side comparison on the moderators (ABC, NBC) to really hear and see the difference of each of their tones and body language. Could be funny.”
Ridiculous they spoke to him like he's a toddler meanwhile trump was attacked

While some observers tuned into the Biden town hall in hopes of hearing him confronted on the Post reports, others dismissed the topic. Online entertainment producer Suzanne Lindbergh called it “Russian disinfo.” Others argued that the question wasn’t relevant because Hunter Biden isn’t running for president, or that questions about Trump’s children would have been more justified.
The only reason I watched to see how he'd respond, waste of time. Unbelievable. Those were not Republicans in the audience, staged.

Because it is literally Russian disinfo the Feds are now investigating. https://t.co/hFWnWTWP6R

how many questions besides all of them should there have been about trump's nepotistic demon spawn and how they've crimed since being in the WH and all their $ laundering and pilfering, connected to russia and elsewhere?

They sure cared when they thought Trump with involved in quid pro quo $$$ and influence peddling. Here we have receipts and suddenly the media doesn’t care?
