Media’s Conspiracy Against Reporting COVID Wuhan Biolab Leak Theory is the Real Scandal

OPINION – As noted here repeatedly, I have been reporting on the serious possibility that COVID-19 leaked from the highest level-4 biosafety laboratory (BSL-4 bio lab) at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China since at least early March of last year. See here and here. I did this not as a partisan, or for any political reason, but as a trained intelligence officer, who looks at reasonable scenarios and analyzes facts.

That China’s sole BSL-4 bio lab at the time, housing the world’s deadliest viruses was only a few short miles from where the Chinese regime claimed was ground zero for the virus outbreak, was simply too significant a fact to ignore.

Identifying the true source of this deadly pandemic was key to combating it.

Yet, the world not only had to deal with a massive, orchestrated cover-up from a highly deceptive totalitarian dictatorship hell-bent on hiding the true origins of the virus, but also an almost criminally complicit establishment media (Big Media), that not only dismissed any reporting of a possible leak from the WIV BSL-4 lab, but actively censored, repressed, and demonized as conspiracy theories, anyone who dared report this option.

Big Tech was a co-conspirator with CCP China and Big Media in this effort. On several occasions, my posts on LinkedIn referencing well-sourced credible, published venues discussing the possibility that COVID leaked from a lab in Wuhan, were blocked or removed. On occasion, my reports were labeled as ‘disinformation,’, even when based on a major news source. My persistent battle with LinkedIn censors on this issue continued until very recently.

Finally, though, the facts have become too much for the unholy alliance between Big Media and Big Tech to ignore or censor. That, and the Democratic Party establishment’s belated admission that this is a real possibility. As Bret Stephens of the New York Times (NYT) facetiously notes:

If the lab-leak theory is finally getting the respectful attention it always deserved, it’s mainly because Joe Biden authorized an inquiry and Anthony Fauci admitted to doubts about the natural-origin claim. In other words, the right president and the right public-health expert have blessed a certain line of inquiry.

Following the lead of its partisan masters, Facebook finally announced that it would no longer label the lab leak theory as ‘misinformation.’ Others are quietly and stealthily rewriting their older reports and rules.

In reality, the real fringe conspiracy kooks and purveyors of misinformation on this critical issue were the Democratic Party, Big Media, and Big Tech. They may all be guilty of promoting the greatest mass cover-up in modern history, and they owe all of us a very public apology. Better yet, heads should roll. LinkedIn – I’m talking to you too.

Stephens at the NYT adds:

If it turns out that the Covid pandemic was caused by a leak from a lab in Wuhan, China, it will rank among the greatest scientific scandals in history: dangerous research, possibly involving ethically dubious techniques that make viruses more dangerous, carried out in a poorly safeguarded facility, thuggishly covered up by a regime more interested in propaganda than human life, catastrophic for the entire world.

But this possible scandal, which is as yet unproved, obscures an actual scandal, which remains to be digested.

I mean the long refusal by too many media gatekeepers (social as well as mainstream) to take the lab-leak theory seriously. The reasons for this — rank partisanship and credulous reporting — and the methods by which it was enforced — censorship and vilification — are reminders that sometimes the most destructive enemies of science can be those who claim to speak in its name.

Stephens concludes that on this issue, Big Media and Big Tech have been guilty of being the biggest producers of misinformation, and it has shredded whatever was left of their credibility:

Anyone wondering why so many people have become so hostile to the pronouncements of public-health officials and science journalists should draw the appropriate conclusion from this story. When lecturing the public about the dangers of misinformation, it’s best not to peddle it yourself.

It was all about power and getting rid of President Trump. Fauci and obiden lost, in the end, because there are still 75 million patriots who won’t bow down.

I too have been blogging about the Wuhan Virology Lab as the source of COVID 19 leak since last December 2019. Not only did that lab leak the virus, but Xi refused to implement a Travel Ban for his Chinese people because of the Chinese New Year — thus spreading COVID into a Pandemic as his infected Chinese visited relatives Worldwide.

No one knew how many Chinese died from the coronavirus because Xi had huge pits dug outside the villages to dump the dead infected Chinese, then burn them and bury them. I truly do not think Xi even knows the number of Chinese that died of COVID 19.

Thank you for a timely piece exposing the real culprits behind the corona virus— an ignorant highly inflated Media that refused to research the Wuhan truth and Fauci, who flip flopped for his audience. Those two were just as responsible for the “Real Disinformation” and should be disrespected/austracized for all the lives that were lost because of their actions.

Xi and the CCP— “evil” doesn’t come close to their actions and humanity and God will deal with them…

To think we have people in this country who are working in partnership with Xi, and embracing his evil ways? Too much to even comprehend, despite the truth of it! 🙁

Now! Will the American public finally realize that the MSM is “no damn good”. These sorry so-called “news” companies should be dismantled and sold off as scrap. Americans have no use for organizations dedicated to “lying” – as the present MSM is in ALL cases. Of course the worst is CNN, but the rest (CBS, NBC, ABC, and the AP) are all equally useless to true Americans who love truth.

Fauci, and they call him doctor. Might as well live with the communist chinese. When you drink the Cool-Aid its only forward onto the next set of sins! Be very thankful considering an honest doctor for your family — one never knows if there killing or curing you! Reviews can be sketchy. A Fauci would be glad to smile in your face while watching you meet your demise! Maybe he’ll be the next clown on death row!

All roads led all along to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). It is the only place in Wuhan with a collection of live coronaviruses, live bats, and scientists carrying out “Gain of Function” research that genetically modified these viruses to make them more infectious to humans.

Good article, however, it failed to point out, perhaps, the biggest scandal, the mask debacle. At the beginning, year ago January, Fauci told the truth, that masks wouldn’t help. He changed this very quickly to they would, which was a lie. To my amazement, masks became mandatory. So, I surmised, they didn’t want to cause panic so they would start mass production of appropriate respirators. That didn’t happened. They just kept lying and lying. The truth is masks are for germs/bacteria which are about 100 microns in size. Viruses are .12 microns in size. Throw a handful of germs at a mask & it would be fairly effective preventing entry. Throw a handful of viruses at a mask & it would be like throwing sand through a bird cage. UNBELIEVEABLE THAT FAUCI & HIS CREW DID THIS. And, seriously, why didn’t people realize this. Look up 3M mask to respirator comparison. Look up germ & viruses sizes at THE MAYO CLINIC, other places, its all readily available to anyone. This may be the first example of worldwide mind control!

And who was it, again, that put some funding into the Wuhan lab? Oh, that’s right, it was a guy known as Barry Soetoro. He gave that lab about $3 million, of taxpayer money. You own a piece of this plague. So do I.
