NewsBusters Podcast: The Liberal Media’s Hostility to COVID Lab Leak Theory

March 1st, 2023 3:58 PM

With CPAC on the horizon, Managing Editor Curtis Houck and I dive into the liberal media’s hostility to the lab leak theory for COVID-19’s origin and how they’re now blaming former President Trump’s criticism of China for rejecting it.

And as I predicted during the previous episode, NewsNation’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo was going to try to have it both ways. He played the same soundbite of himself we did – of him in his basement reading a breaking headline about the government investigating the lab leak theory. But now he was ridiculously claiming that he was the only one seriously trying to hold China accountable.

Being The View master, I also shared their take: again, blaming Trump for their aversion to following logic and focusing on the lab. Sunny Hostin even admitted that physicians in her family thought it came from a lab but she didn’t want them saying that because of Trump.

And once more, be sure to check out the MRC’s presence at CPAC including the panel discussion with our Founder and President Brent Bozell!
