A new report in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, most commonly known for operating the “Doomsday Clock,” suggests the left-dominated media and “Trump derangement syndrome” has led to critical questions about the origins of COVID-19 being avoided, ignored, and ultimately led more to suffer.
Writing this week, former science correspondent for the New York Times Nicholas Wade concluded:
To these serried walls of silence must be added that of the mainstream media. To my knowledge, no major newspaper or television network has yet provided readers with an in-depth news story of the lab escape scenario, such as the one you have just read, although some have run brief editorials or opinion pieces. One might think that any plausible origin of a virus that has killed three million people would merit a serious investigation. Or that the wisdom of continuing gain-of-function research, regardless of the virus’s origin, would be worth some probing. Or that the funding of gain-of-function research by the NIH and NIAID during a moratorium on such research would bear investigation. What accounts for the media’s apparent lack of curiosity?
