CNN Instructed Employees to not Probe Covid Leak Theory

  • Analysis

In Brief:

An inside source has revealed to Fox News that then CNN president, Jeff Zucker told CNN staff to not investigate the validity of the COVID lab leak theory. An employee, Oliver Darcy then wrote a piece titled “Here’s how to debunk coronavirus misinformation and conspiracy theories from friends and family.”

The Background: 

Following years of crying “conspiracy theory,” over the theory that COVID was not only manufactured but leaked from a Chinese lab, the government is finally admitting that that “conspiracy theory” is actually the most plausible theory.

And now that the exposure has started, it doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. First with Fauci’s involvement in lying about the theory, to now the revealment that then CNN president Zucker purposely halted all investigation into a very plausible and newsworthy theory. 

With comments such as Apoorva Mandavilli tweeting “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.” 

Journalist Glenn Greewald tweeted “Much of the liberal-left said it, too. All that matters is the truth, but the far more racist theory was *theirs*: that COVID occurred due to primitive, unsanitary Chinese bat-eating wet markets.”

He further tweeted “A huge number of NBC and CNN employees repeatedly said the ‘lab leak’ theory was ‘debunked. That was a total lie. It was never debunked. That lie was concocted by [infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony] Fauci and Peter Daszak, who had major, undisclosed personal conflicts in protecting the Wuhan Lab.” 


Notable Quotes:

“How many employees of media corporations who repeatedly mocked the COVID ‘lab leak’ theory as a ‘debunked’ lie that only insane conspiracy theorists believe (because Fauci told them to say that) will apologize now that much of the USG (US government) believes this?” tweeted Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald.
