Turns Out It Was the Lab-Leak Deniers Who Wore the Tinfoil Hats; COVID Lab Leak is a Scandal of Media and Government Censorship, and other C-Virus related stories

Turns out it was the lab-leak deniers who wore the tinfoil hats:
A still-classified report from the federal government’s top biowarfare experts has concluded, albeit with “low confidence,” that COVID really did leak from that Wuhan lab. So much for three years of vehement denial, and outright suppression of even discussion of the idea, from Dr. Anthony Fauci, Big Tech and countless US liberals in the throes of COVID panic.
Yes, it’s a bit odd that those experts work for the Department of Energy, which officially owns the report. But it’s going to be tough for holdouts to pretend the famed Livermore Labs is a nest of racist, tinfoil-hat conspiracy theorists. And this follows the FBI’s similar conclusion in 2021.
Since China’s rulers haven’t allowed (and never will) an independent on-the-scene investigation at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, hard proof’s unlikely to ever show. But every hysteric from the government-media censorship machine sure owes apologies and explanations.
Including to The Post: We published Steven Mosher’s column raising the lab-leak theory back in February 2020, and Boom! came down the Big Tech hammer, as our opinion piece got suppressed as disinformation. --->READ MORE HERE
COVID lab leak is a scandal of media and government censorship:
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Energy Department has concluded that the COVID pandemic most likely arose from a laboratory leak.
The conclusion is reportedly based on a classified intelligence report recently provided to the White House and key members of Congress. Many will be exploring why the scientific evidence of a lab leak was so slow to emerge from intelligence agencies.
However, for my part, the most alarming aspect was the censorship, not the science.
There will continue to be a debate over the origins of COVID-19, but now there will be an actual debate.
For years, the media and government allied to treat anyone raising a lab theory as one of three possibilities: conspiracy theorist or racist or racist conspiracy theorist.
Academics joined this chorus in marginalizing anyone raising the theory. One study cited the theory as an example of “anti-Chinese racism” and “toxic white masculinity.”
As late as May 2021, the New York Times’ Science and Health reporter Apoorva Mandavilli was calling any mention of the lab theory “racist.”
She embodies the model of the new “advocacy journalism” at the Times. Reporters who remained wedded to the dated view of objective journalism were purged from the ranks of the Times long ago.
Mandavilli and others made clear that reporters covering the theory were COVID’s little Bull Connors. She tweeted wistfully “someday we will stop talking about the lab leak theory and maybe even admit its racist roots. But alas, that day is not yet here.” --->READ MORE HERE
