Fox News: "Hunter Biden" a topic CNN, NBC, MSNBC, do not seem to like vs CNN: Hunter Biden held to different standard than Trump kids

Hunter and Joe Biden are in the midst of impeachment inquiry. The latter, because he is the top running candidate for Democrats and he bragged about his role in the removal of Ukrainian prosecutor Shokin, who was, reportedly, investigating business dealings of his son (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXA--dj2-CY). The former, because he is far from a top lawyer, and landed a 600k per year job in Ukraine, while his father was Obama’s top official in Ukraine. His role has been described as controversial because “There is a conflict of interest even if it doesn’t break any laws. It’s a big deal. It’s the vice president, who is the point person of the Obama administration’s policy on Ukraine, and his son is suddenly hired to be a director on the board of Ukraine’s largest private gas producer.” (https://www.businessinsider.com/ukraine-gas-company-burisma-holdings-joe-bidens-son-hunter-explained-2019-9).

According to Fox News, mainstream media does not investigate Hunter’s business dealings and they change the subject whenever he is mentioned, concluding with the mantra that “everything has been investigated”. According to CNN, Hunter is held to different standard than Trump kids, who are working in the White House and have foreign business dealings too.
The truth is that CNN has looked into the topic of Hunter’s alleged investigation (https://edition.cnn.com/2019/09/28/politics/fact-checking-trump-ukraine-scandal-bidens/index.html. The same is the case with other mainstream media, which looked into Hunter’s case, concluding that there was no wrongdoing, because Shokin was investigating the period prior to Hunter Biden joining Burisma. On the other hand, what CNN fails to mention is that Hunter Biden and Trump kids are not completely comparable. Biden family started its business dealings in Ukraine only after Joe Biden was named Obama’s top ranking official in that country. On the other side, Trump kids were only building on previously existing business dealings.
