Yet, you would never know it from watching the MSM.

Since the children of vice-presidential candidates are supposedly newsworthy, why isn't more being written about Sen. Joseph Biden's daughter, Ashley Blazer Biden?
Ashley Biden was arrested in Chicago in 2002 for "obstructing a police officer", which meant: "Biden blocked the officer's path and made intimidating statements". The charges were later dismissed in exchange for her public apology to the police.
But no recent mentions of this in the mainstream media. Also nowhere reported is Ashley Biden's arrest for marijuana possession in New Orleans while she was a student at Tulane.
No, it shouldn't necessarily be a big deal for an 18-year-old college student to carry a little weed. But when her father trumpets himself as "a leader in Congress on combating drug use and stemming the flow of drugs into our country." with a special focus on "Educating Children and Keeping Drugs Out of Schools", a responsible press should be asking Sen. Biden some questions about Ashley's drug use (might she also have been under the influence when she messed with the police in Chicago?) and how that personal experience influences the Senator's positions on drug policy.
And it would also be fair to ask whether Ashley was given favorable treatment in either criminal proceeding on account of her father's position.
