A lot of face plants are already starting in the mainstream news media for constant lies they have told over the last four years. People have come to expect the mainstream news media to lie to them. That has been accepted long ago. But during the Trump years, the lying and hyperbolic reporting were exacerbated to the point where it denied belief in a Benevolent Being.
One such lie was how the entire mainstream news media either censored or falsely debunked the Wuhan lab theory where many people were talking about how the COVID-19 pandemic virus started in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China. When the Democrats realized that they could politicize the virus against Donald Trump, the media followed suit. It was like they didn’t even need to hold a backroom meeting with dim lights and cigar smoke as leftists huddled around a table with a single lightbulb hanging down at the end of a wire. Even though I do believe there was collusion there, they knew exactly what to do. And they didn’t think at the time that one day after Trump was gone they would have to live with what they did.
The Washington Post is one of those lying mainstream news outlets that has now gone ahead and corrected a story from February 2020 when they referred to the Wuhan lab leak theory of the origin of the pandemic virus as “debunked.”
Of course, anyone with a three-digit IQ knew right off the bat [pun intended] that the story was not debunked, and that’s when things like this get weird. When you know that a leftist reporter is lying to you and they continue to do it, knowing that most people know they’re lying and it doesn’t phase them at all, that’s really creepy.
The WaPo did a report covering a Fox News interview with Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) where he alluded to a lab studying bat coronaviruses in Wuhan as a possible origin of the virus that killed over 3 million people worldwide.
“We don’t know where it originated, and we have to get to the bottom of that,” Cotton told Fox’s Maria Bartiromo. “We also know that just a few miles away from that food market is China’s only biosafety level 4 super laboratory that researches human infectious diseases.”
Cotton’s words were not vicious. He simply wanted to get to the bottom of where the COVID-19 virus originated. That’s part of his job. And it was important because once you learn where it originated you can then begin to take measures on how to fight it or even stop it from spreading. But China went to great lengths to cover up what they did including possibly buying off the World Health Organization to tell their version of the story.
“Now, we don’t have evidence that this disease originated there, but because of China’s duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning, we need to at least ask the question to see what the evidence says,” Cotton said. “And China right now is not giving any evidence on that question at all.”
In spite of those rational comments, the Washington Post accused Cotton of pushing a “conspiracy theory” that has been “debunked.”
The headline read, “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus conspiracy theory that was already debunked.”
Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Washington Post edited the original headline that you can see here. They changed the headline to “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus fringe theory that scientists have disputed.”
They made the change because the emergency was over, and Trump is now gone. Now that the origin of the virus is being talked about by more and more important people, the WaPo wanted to make it appear that they didn’t slam Cotton for political reasons.
Their problem is that in order to claim that something has been debunked you have to show the real answer, and since at this time we still do not know the true origin of COVID-19, calling it debunked was a lie pure and simple. They wrote it to serve a purpose and not to report the truth.
The correction they made:
Earlier versions of this story and its headline inaccurately characterized comments by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) regarding the origins of the coronavirus. The term “debunked” and The Post’s use of “conspiracy theory” have been removed because, then as now, there was no determination about the origins of the virus.
They let it sit out there for 15 months. Only now did they make the correction because it helps them. The WaPo is a despicable rag who not only inaccurately deemed the theory as debunked, but they used comments from a science expert who has refuted the way they characterized his comments.
The Post quoted Richard Ebright, a Rutgers University professor of chemical biology as dismissing the theory that China developed the virus as a bioweapon, even though Cotton never made that claim.
Ebright was also quoted saying, “There’s absolutely nothing in the genome sequence of this virus that indicates the virus was engineered.”
That’s a falsehood that will be proven soon when a new study is released that claims to have proof that the virus was created by Chinese scientists. The two scientists involved in the study said the big giveaway to their proof is that they found a rare instance in the COVID virus of a row of amino acids giving off a positive charge and bond to negative human cells.
“The laws of physics mean that you cannot have four positively charged amino acids in a row,” Dalgleish one of the scientists involved in the study said. “The only way you can get this is if you artificially manufacture it.”
Get this, Ebright said that he told the Post when they interviewed him that he thought that a lab leak was a possible origin, but the Post left those comments out of their story.
“I was surprised that the February 17, 2020 article in WaPo quoted only my comments on the genome sequence and not my comments on the lab-accident hypothesis,” he said.
More and more corrections are coming out and it allows us to see how deeply these leftist news outlets were in the tank with Democrats to push the narrative that Donald Trump was at fault for every death that came from the COVID-19 virus. The leftists in news are now blaming Donald Trump for their duplicity claiming that because Trump lied all the time and said many racist things, none of which they can provide actual evidence, they didn’t take it seriously when he said he believed the virus originated in a lab in Wuhan, China. But even if they didn’t trust that Trump said it, they still should have investigated that story and they didn’t. And that now seems intentional.

All media outlets that reported the Wuhan lab theory was debunked, and it was most of them, should all be held accountable because their lies put everyone’s lives at risk. In the end, Trump was right all along; the Washington Post is Fake News.
