OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Following a legal threat from Hunter Biden’s attorneys, Fox News removed the series “The Trial of Hunter Biden” from its Fox Nation streaming service. The attorneys voiced their concerns this week on the inclusion of sexually explicit photographs of Biden in the documentary, claiming that the images—which may have been obtained through hacking—may have violated state statutes against revenge pornography.

The series, which had its premiere on the network’s streaming site in October 2022, was taken down a day after Hunter Biden’s legal team made their threat known in public. Among other things, Biden has accused the network of slander.

“This program was produced in and has been available since 2022. We are reviewing the concerns that have just been raised and — out of an abundance of caution in the interim — have taken it down,” a Fox News Media spokesperson said in a statement on Wednesday.

“The Trial of Hunter Biden” was a six-part documentary series produced by Fox Nation. It aimed to provide an in-depth look into the legal and political controversies surrounding Hunter, the son of President Joe Biden. The series included reenactments and analyses of various allegations against Hunter, such as those involving his business dealings in Ukraine and China, and his personal struggles. The series has been a point of significant interest, reflecting political divisions within the Biden family.

In a letter that CNN was able to get, Hunter reportedly demanded that Fox News take down from its platforms any sexually explicit photographs that he claimed were private. His plan included taking this move as a public rebuke to the conservative media. The accusation in the letter from Hunter Biden’s lawyers to Fox News was that they were planning to discredit him and were distributing “hacked” photos without permission. In reference to allegations that President Joe Biden and his son were part of an international bribery conspiracy, it also asked for on-air corrections and retractions in web stories.

“For the past five years, Fox News has relentlessly attacked Hunter Biden and made him a caricature in order to boost ratings and for its financial gain,” said a statement from the attorney team for Hunter Biden, Mark Geragos, Bryan Freedman, and Tina Glandian.

According to the letter requesting the series’ immediate removal from all streaming platforms, the media outlet published “intimate images of Mr. Biden depicting him in the nude as well as engaged in sex acts” in 2022 and hosted a mock trial of Hunter Biden on its streaming platform Fox Nation, which was centered around unproven bribery allegations.

“Consistent with the First Amendment, Fox News has accurately covered these highly publicized events as well as the subsequent indictment of an FBI informant who was the source of certain claims made about Mr. Biden,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement yesterday.
