The New York Times took some heat on Tuesday for what amounted to a puff piece praising the “battle-tested” relationship between President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who was convicted earlier that day on several felony gun charges.

The article, written by reporter Katie Rogers, focused on how Hunter Biden’s guilty verdict in a Wilmington, Delaware, courtroom could “weigh on” President Biden — who already worries about his son’s future and is himself facing the stress of a presidential campaign. The elder Biden, Rogers wrote, is “growing more resigned and afraid” of what may be in store for his embattled son.

“Hunter Biden was waiting for his father on the tarmac,” the piece began. “He had just been convicted on three felony gun charges by a jury in Wilmington, Del., his hometown. His father had hastily rearranged his schedule and rushed up from Washington.”

“Within hours of the verdict, President Biden traveled home, disembarked from Marine One and embraced his son. The president hugged Hunter Biden’s son and wife, as well, and bent over to kiss the head of his grandson, Beau Biden,” Rogers wrote. “To call the relationship between father and son battle tested is an understatement.”

The New York Post’s Jonathan Levine commented on the tone of the piece, saying, “NYT coverage of Hunter Biden truly unbelievable.”

“The NYT is transcribing a screenplay on behalf of the White House communication team. This is not tongue in cheek; this is literally what they are doing,” another posted.

“In case you’re wondering whether or not the New York Times has any shame or sense of embarrassment left, this disgrace confirms that answer is a resounding no,” Ian Miller said.

“Embarrassing to say the least,” Steve Guest added.

“This is some hard hitting, unbiased, objective, agenda-less journalism right here. Amazing stuff,” another said.
