(Natural News) Almost a year ago to the day, the mainstream media was scoffing at the notion that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) could have “escaped” from a laboratory in communist China. Fast-forward to today and now it is suddenly in vogue to suggest that the origin of Chinese Germs was not a bowl of bat soup.
Headlines like, “Sen. Tom Cotton Repeats Fringe Theory of Coronavirus Origins” (The New York Times), “Trump says U.S. investigating whether coronavirus spread after China lab mishap but cites no evidence” (USA Today), and “New research explores how conservative media misinformation may have intensified the severity of the pandemic” (The Washington Post) were plastered across the media back in 2020, as you may recall. Now, however, these same media outlets are saying the exact opposite now that fake television “doctor” Anthony Fauci has suddenly and conspicuously changed his own tune about the origin of the Wuhan Flu.
Perhaps the funniest of all the headlines from last spring was one written by CNN‘s Oliver Darcy that read, “Here’s how to debunk coronavirus misinformation and conspiracy theories from friends and family.” In the piece, Darcy explained that the lab origin theory that had already started to circulate was “fake news” that had already been “debunked” by Fauci and the Democrats.
As it turns out, Fauci and the Democrats are now spreading that same conspiracy theory more than a year later. It is now seen as “factual” to claim that the Chinese Virus may have come from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), which for years has received funding from American taxpayers via Fauci.
“I don’t get how you can factcheck something that we don’t know the facts on,” tweeted Drew Holden about a similar series of headlines put out by the Post that claimed it was “unsubstantiated” and “doubtful” that the Wuhan Flu originated at a Wuhan lab as opposed to a Wuhan wet market.
As suspected, the original “pandemic” narrative was a pile of politicized garbage
A few months later on May 5, 2020, CNN published another ridiculous headline claiming that Fauci had “crushed” then-President Donald Trump’s theory on the lab leak. CNN “Editor-at-large” Chris Cillizza contended at the time that Fauci had “disproven” Trump’s claim. A little more than a year later, Fauci embraced the very thing he had supposedly “debunked.”
“Are you still confident that it developed naturally?” Fauci was asked just the other day about the Chinese Virus.
“No, actually,” Fauci responded. “I am not convinced about that. I think we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we continue to find out to the best of our ability what happened.”
So much for just being a “fringe” idea propagated by Orange Man.
It would appear as though Trump was right all along, and Fauci, CNN, and the rest of the left-wing squawkers were wrong – again. It just goes to show that this whole “pandemic” has been nothing but a politicized pile of garbage, the narrative of which changes almost hourly at this point.
“Major media outlets spent a year demonizing the lab-leak theory as an insane conspiracy theory,” tweeted independent journalist Glenn Greenwald.
“Fact-checkers pronounced it false. Those suggesting it were banned online on grounds of ‘disinformation.’ Mainstream outlets are now forced to admit its viability. Any accountability?”
The answer, of course, is no. These lying political hacks have never been held accountable in the past, and more than likely will not be held accountable now. Miracles do happen, though.
