The presidential campaign of Democratic candidate Joe Biden contacted executives at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and Fox News on Sunday and demanded that they no longer book Trump lawyer Rudy Guiliani on their networks because Biden does not want the attorney talking about the allegations surrounding the Biden-Ukraine corruption scandal.
“We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” the letter stated. “Giving Rudy Giuliani valuable time on your air to push these lies in the first place is a disservice to your audience and a disservice to journalism.”
“While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough,” the letter continued. “By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”
“We write to demand that in service to the facts, you no longer book Rudy Giuliani, a surrogate for Donald Trump,” the letter added.
Giuliani tweeted out a copy of the letter, writing: “The Bidens are clearly rattled by the affidavit showing there is a named accuser and not an anonymous source, who is ready to testify! Reminds me of the reaction to the corrupt pols of the 70’s and 80’s. They have their Dem media trying to destroy my reputation and silence me!”
