(Newser) – Joe Biden's campaign has asked TV networks to stop allowing President Trump's attorney to "introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded, and desperate lies into the national conversation." In a letter to the heads of networks including ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS, and Fox seen by Politico, Biden campaign officials ask the networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani because he has "demonstrated that he will knowingly and willingly lie in order to advance his own narrative." Giuliani, who has repeatedly claimed that Biden pushed to have Ukraine's top prosecutor fired in 2016 for the benefit of his son, Hunter Biden, appeared on ABC and CBS on Sunday.

"While you often fact-check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough," the Biden campaign officials wrote. Giuliani fired back with a series of tweets Sunday. "Think of the Biden arrogance and entitlement to protection," he tweeted. "They believe they own the media and they are demanding that they silence me. They know I have incriminating facts, not hearsay, because they know what they did in selling Joe’s office to a Ukrainian crook." Sources tell the Washington Post that Biden allies are considering forming a super PAC to defend the candidate from Giuliani and Trump's attacks. During a speech in Utah on Saturday, Biden didn't mention the attacks—or the Trump impeachment inquiry. (Read more Rudy Giuliani stories.)
