Liberal Journalists Slam Republicans As 'Racist' For Calling Coronavirus, 'Wuhan Virus'

American journalists, so desperate to blame President Trump for the COVID-19 coronavirus, are now trying to cover for communist China’s government by insisting any mention of its origin be left out of the discussion. Left-wing journalists took to Twitter to bash Republicans as “racist” for calling the virus the “Wuhan” or “Chinese” virus, even though there is a laundry list of other viral outbreaks being named after where they originated from.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes clutched his pearls after GOP Rep. Paul Gosar called it the "Wuhan virus":

CNN’s senior national correspondent Kyung Lah was livid:

Senior correspondent for Vox, Ian Millhiser imagined a right-wing conspiracy behind it all:

Daily Beast editor-at-large Molly Jong-Fast went from suspicious to “racist!” pretty quickly:

MSNBC journalist David Gura left no room for discussion:

As did sports editor for The Nation, Dave Zirin, who sighed dramatically:

Tuesday morning on MSNBC, anchor Ayman Mohyeldin also invited his Democrat guest to bash GOP House minority leader Kevin McCarthy for his “obviously very offensive, derogatory terminology” calling it the “Wuhan virus” in a tweet. NBC News touted Gosar "under fire" for his "racist" tweet.

Even worse though, is that the media is guilty of doing the very thing they claim is now offensive.
