WATCH: Journalists Admit They Spiked Wuhan Lab Leak Story Because Trump Backed It

While it came too late to change the constant negative coverage, we can now show them for who they really are.

The journos that are changing their tune and suddenly considering the lab leak theory as plausible look like complete schmucks. Good. Let them wear it. It’s taken them over five years and thousands of hours of ranting and raving on cable news shows to finally admit that they didn’t like the former President, and maybe, just maybe, it might have colored their reportage. Wuhan lab leak story

I swear, these lefty journos have absolutely no self-awareness whatsoever.

It’s been pretty clear for decades that journalists are rooting for one political party over the other. Still, it just became absurd under the Obama administration and positively cartoonish under Trump. Journalists behaved like reactionaries bemoaning that their beloved Barry couldn’t remain President in perpetuity and openly loathing the Orange Usurper. Obama could say or do nothing wrong, and Trump couldn’t say or do anything right.

For an entire year, the lab leak theory was dismissed as a “conspiracy theory” by everyone and their dog in the corporate media, flagged on social media, and fact-checked by so-called “fact-checkers” while the actually xenophobic “wet market” theory was pushed as Gospel Truth.

Early in the pandemic, journalists didn’t like that Trump referred to the novel coronavirus as the “China virus”…

…even though they called it the “Wuhan coronavirus.”

But now, with no change in the facts whatsoever, the corporate media is suddenly looking into the lab leak as a possibility. The only thing that changed was the inhabitant of the White House.

ABC’s Jon Karl admits that so-called “journalists” didn’t bother to investigate the theory that the novel coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, that was known to be studying bat coronaviruses simply because Donald Trump said it. He’s concerned that they now have “egg on their faces” for not being able to recognize that just because Trump said a thing, that doesn’t mean that it’s not true

Jon Karl is an absolute hack.

 

Do you remember that whole “Trump told people to inject bleach” lie spouted by idiots in the press and more idiots on Twitter? Guess who the one that first floated that was? Yep. Jon Karl.

Remember this little “ditty?”

Karl isn’t the only one suddenly admitting that the lab leak theory is now “credible.” Glenn Kessler, Washington Post’s self-proclaimed “fact-checker,” admits the same thing.

In a lengthy article titled, “Timeline: How the Wuhan lab-leak theory suddenly became credible,” Kessler admits that the media ignored serious concerns that the virus leaked from a Chinese lab in Wuhan because of “Trump’s rhetoric.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) from the start pointed to the lab’s location in Wuhan, pressing China for answers, so the history books will reward him if he turns out to be right. The Trump administration also sought to highlight the lab scenario but generally could only point to vague intelligence. The Trump administration’s messaging was often accompanied by anti-Chinese rhetoric that made it easier for skeptics to ignore its claims. (Emphasis Added)

But, as former Director of National Intelligence noted, it wasn’t just President Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) but also the intelligence statements that the media ignored.

Trump Derangement Syndrome caused an awful lot of fake news over the past four years. As we have repeatedly said, “fake news” includes what is not covered, including every possible theory about the origin of a virus that has devastated the entire world and killed millions.

Some people in the Corporate Media are finally at the acceptance stage of their Trump Derangement Syndrome™. While it came too late to change the constant negative coverage, we can now show them for the hacks that they really are.

MUST SEE: Brave Alaskan Helps Baby Moose Navigate Highway Barrier

Normally, stories about moose on the highway don’t end this well.

Alaska is a state like no other.  It’s still a veritably untamed place, where the weather and the wildlife are both out to get you. It takes a special kind of person to hack it in America’s last frontier.  A simple run to the grocery store can be hazardous in some conditions, and just taking the garbage out at night may find you face-to-face with hundreds of pounds of brown bear. But ask any Alaskan what they hope to avoid the most, and many will tell you it’s the moose that you have to worry about. These creatures are simply enormous, and they have just enough of an attitude to be more than a nuisance when confronted.  Combine that with the fact that plenty of Alaskans are killed each year after automotive collisions with these gargantuan animals, and you have a real recipe for trouble. This week, however, a different sort of moose story made headlines, and with some adorable photos to show for it. Last week, pictures of a man in Alaska lifting a moose calf over a highway guardrail were posted on Facebook. According to Andrea N Salty Bock, who posted the pictures on Facebook, the calf and its mother were near Clam Gulch, on the Kenai Peninsula. The mother was apparently trying to get her baby to go over the guardrail, but it was too tall for the calf. “Traffic stopped to give her the room she needed,” the Facebook post said. “But the calf could not clear the guardrail.” The photos were captivating. Authorities, while thankful that the moose was able to continue on its way, warned that the situation was still a dangerous one, despite the size and age of this animal.

Biden, Putin Appear Ready to Make Deal on Cyber Criminals

Well, it’s a start.

Vladimir Putin

Of all of the ways in which this latest iteration of the Cold War has manifested itself in recent years, the insidious actors of the digital dimension may very well be the most prominent here in the 21st century. Notably, the den of online thieves and troublemakers who emanate from Russia, and often choose to target individuals and businesses in America.  In the past several weeks alone, hackers with ties to Russia have crippled a gasoline pipeline on the east coast of the United States and the world’s largest meatpackers. Now, as US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin look for ways to improve the ailing relationship between their two nations, a novel idea has risen in popularity. President Joe Biden signaled an openness to swapping cybercriminals with Russia ahead of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday. “Yes, I’m open to, if there’s crimes committed against Russia that, in fact, people committing those crimes are being harbored in the United States, I’m committed to holding them accountable. I was told as I was flying here that he said that. I think that’s potentially a good sign of progress,” Biden said at a post-G-7 summit press conference in the United Kingdom on Sunday. Putin had raised the possibility during an interview over the weekend. “If we agree on the extradition of criminals, then Russia will naturally do that but only if the other side, in this case, the United States, agrees to the same and will also extradite corresponding criminals to the Russian Federation,” Putin said according to Russian news agency TASS. Of course, given that Russia has a history of neglecting the human rights of her prisoners, there is sure to be some pushback regarding the idea of sending “innocent until proven guilty” perpetrators…
