The Biden campaign apparently has an interesting interpretation of freedom of the press.
Case in point, the Biden campaign has already demanded CNN not invite Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani to appear.
The Biden campaign then attacked Facebook for refusing to take down a Trump advertisement critical of Biden.
Now, the Biden campaign is even going after the left-leaning New York Times, for publishing a piece critical of Biden, from the author of “Clinton Cash.”
Per FoxNews, the deputy manager of Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign slammed The New York Times on Wednesday in a letter to the newspaper’s executive editor — blasting the paper’s coverage of the former vice president’s involvement in Ukraine.
The letter, written by Kate Bedingfield to Dean Baquet of the Times, criticizes the paper for “giving top billing” to “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer in a Wednesday op-ed titled, “What Hunter Biden Did Was Legal – That’s the Problem,” CNN reported.
In his article, Schweizer asserts Biden was “self-dealing” in Ukraine while vice president.
“Congress can and should conduct an inquiry to determine whether anything illegal occurred,” Schweizer writes.

Bedingfield goes on to criticize The Times’ Ukraine coverage at large. She writes that the newspaper had an “outsized hand in a baseless conspiracy theory” promoted by Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, that Biden acted inappropriately in helping get rid of a Ukrainian prosecutor.
She then accuses The Times of “active participation” in a “smear campaign” against Biden, citing a May article titled “Biden Faces Conflict of Interest Questions That Are Being Promoted by Trump and Allies.”
