Sen. Tex Cruz (R-TX) delivered a scathing rebuke to mainstream media outlets Thursday for not covering the ongoing revelations regarding Hunter Biden's alleged criminal foreign business dealings, calling them "shameful" and accusing them of "shilling for Joe Biden."

Cruz referred specifically to a special press conference held Thursday before the final presidential debate, where Hunter Biden's ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski delivered a scathing indictment of the Biden family and its reported involvement in overseas financial transactions.

In Bobulinski's press briefing, he said he had talked directly with Joe Biden about the family's business dealings in China and that he had been installed as the CEO of the company created to funnel funds to the Biden family.

"I have heard Joe Biden say he has never discussed his dealings with Hunter. That is false. I have firsthand knowledge about this because I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden," Bobulinski said.

Bobulinski had earlier confirmed the legitimacy of an email showing Joe Biden set to get a 10% stake in a Chinese company. Bobulinski said he would be meeting with the Senate committee – which published a full report in September on Hunter Biden's dealings – and turning over three private phones with more evidence to the FBI.

Speaking to Fox News – the only major outlet to cover the briefing – Cruz reacted strongly to the news revealed by Bobulinski.

"[It] was remarkable and...raises serious questions about whether Joe Biden has personally enriched himself, whether he's been paid millions from communist China and — and the allegation is that he had a secret share potentially in this business deal that Hunter Biden held for him," Cruz said.

Cruz then slammed the media for avoiding most of the allegations against the Bidens and criticized the censorship of the original New York Post article by tech giants last week.

"The media is not even pretending to do their job and I think that's really dangerous, particularly when you combine it with big tech censorship where what is at stake in the election is — is really fundamental about whether we are going to preserve our freedoms, constitutional liberties," Cruz said. "...I think the degree to which the media and Big Tech are shilling for Joe Biden are protecting him, covering him up, and not even asking these questions, I think it's really shameful."
