(Natural News) With the Georgia Senate run-offs about two weeks away, the liberal media have continued to put their thumbs on the scale of the electorate in much the same fashion they did by hiding from voters negative stories about the Biden ticket.

In Georgia, one example has been the refusal of the networks and newspapers to cover Democrat Jon Ossoff’s cozy business dealings with the Chinese Communist Party as Peach State voters head to the polls on January 5 to decide the Senate’s balance of power.

NewsBusters conducted a Nexis search of the broadcast networks transcripts over the past three months and they have yet to acknowledge, on their morning or evening newscasts, that Ossoff’s media company received money from PCCW Media Limited, which is partially owned by a Chinese state-backed company. According to Nexis, this blackout also extended to The New York Times.

Seeing as how we’re still in the throes of the liberal media largely ignoring Eric Swalwell’s romance with a Chinese spy, this shouldn’t come as too much of a shock.

In September, National Review’s Tobias Hoonhout broke the story (click “expand”):

Georgia Democrat and Senate candidate Jon Ossoff has been compensated by a Hong Kong media conglomerate whose owner has spoken out against pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, according to his most recent financial disclosure.

Ossoff, whose role as CEO of a London-based producer of investigative documentaries has drawn scrutiny over the years, reported in an amended financial statement that he has received at least $5,000 from PCCW Media Limited over the last two years — a detail that has previously gone unreported. Ossoff did not disclose his ties to PCCW in his initial financial report, which he filed in May.

PCCW, the largest telecom agency in Hong Kong, is run by Chairman Richard Li, son of Hong Kong’s richest man, Li Ka-shing. Li also serves as a councilor for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington, D.C., think tank. But for years, Li has spoken out against Hong Kong independence and the pro-democracy protests that have rocked the island as the Chinese Communist Party has consolidated control.
