President Joe Biden's sister was warned ahead of her appearance on The View that one of the cohosts planned to ask about Hunter Biden's legal troubles.

Valerie Biden Owens, a longtime Democratic political operative, appeared on the daytime talk show in April to discuss Biden "family dynamics" while promoting her book, Growing Up Biden. But Vanity Fair reports that Owens had "been warned during a commercial" to expect a question about Hunter from conservative View guest host Alyssa Farah Griffin.

Members of the media have repeatedly run interference to protect the Biden family from stories of Hunter's exploits. Shortly before the elections, CNN, NPR, Politico, and other outlets suggested the reports of Hunter's illicit activities were "Russian disinformation." Multiple outlets including the New York Times have since confirmed the veracity of those initial reports.
