HUGE: The org led by Dr. Fauci provided a $600k grant to the Wuhan Lab for what experts say was gain of function research AND his org helped that grant bypass govt review meant to regulate risky research.…
NOW: Republican Rep. Scott Perry is saying Fauci needs to answer for why his org helped this funding circumvent that review.…
The grant went from Fauci’s org, to Daszak EcoHealth Alliance — well known for working with WIV — to WIV itself for the purposes of researching bat coronaviruses.

I’d be willing to bet that I’m among less than one percent of senior editors/reporters in national politics 40> who has voted for both parties.

Why does it matter?
Well because as local papers dry up, journalism increasingly stovepipes. Similar academic pipelines form similar people going to the surviving corporate media companies that all have similar interests.
The web has also divided national political media into two concentrated competing forces.

On one hand, you have the conservative commentariat. On the other, about 8-12 journalism institutions barely holding on to objectivity as wokists steadily takeover their newsrooms.

There’s no accountability when lefties publish fake shit. None.
It’s absolutely fucking nutty to me. Spend months calling lab leak hypothesis a “conspiracy theory” or calling the laptop story “disinfo” ... none of it true, all of it ultra high stakes, v important. Just fake narrative after fake narrative. Dangerous for schools to open. Fake.
Trump told them to “find fraud.” Fake. Jussie Smollett. Fake. Covington. Fake. Hands up, don’t shoot. Fake. Jacob Blake was unarmed. Fake. Alfa bank. Fake. Cohen in Prague. Fake. Don Jr Wikileaks. Fake. Michael Avenatti. Holy fake. Russia dossier. Ffffffucking fake.

Do we honestly believe anything the WHO says about the origins of the Wuhan virus?

We need an independent, multinational team of scientists to investigate this lab.

Even then, China's immediate actions as the virus struck lead me to believe that any evidence has been destroyed
Going a step further, there should be a UN and Washington-led moratorium on Gain of Function research until this investigation is complete.

I read the ethics papers published during the US moratorium from 2014-2017. If there's even a shade of possibility that this research ...
... led to what we just experienced -- and there most certainly IS a possibility, even a probability -- it strikes me that we should STOP right now and re-evaluate the pursuit as a whole.

I know things were a hectic, but I find it rather shocking the ease with which the NYT invented a story about a credentialed reporter out of whole cloth and then published it.

Given how rapidly the FBI is arresting people, the NYT should take pains to get this stuff right.
For those who don't know, Sunday's @nytimes published an image of @RichieMcGinniss, referred to him as a "rioter" and said he was engaged in violent activity at the capitol.

While we’re at it, the NYT correction makes no attempt to correct the implication. Instead, they say the “right wing” reporter was somehow adjacent to the violence and property destruction.

This is sickening behavior from the paper of record. Be up front when you fuck up.

Here is what we know and what we don’t:

1. We know the virus came from bats.
2. We don’t know how it jumped from bats to humans, the missing link
3. We know the kind of bat it came from was hundreds of miles from where the outbreak occurred.
4 ...
We know the lab right beside the outbreak was studying how viruses evolve to jump species.

5 We know this is called gain of function research.

6 We know this research was briefly banned in the US bec it has the potential to create, yes create, highly transmissible new pathogens
7. We also know that several of the naysayers say this virus is like 95% genetically similar to viruses already present in nature.

8. But we know that many of these naysayers have a vested financial interest in preserving this research.

9. And we know that it’s not

I’m not sure why you included us in this round up, @brianstelter ... we have not been boosting the president’s fraud allegations. Actually we’ve been doing the exact opposite. I would ask for a correction, but I’m pretty sure this is intentional dishonesty.
I’m legitimately wondering if you’ve got anything to say here, @brianstelter
This post led our coverage on the site November 9, @brianstelter, just days after the election. So, again, I’m not sure what methodology you used in your casual slander of our company.…
