This aged poorly. Will Vice retract?
Is Fortune going to retract this nonsense?
Will MSNBC/MaddowBlog retract this?
Will Scientific American retract this "fact check"?
Speaking of more things that aged poorly, here's the Seattle Times publishing Chinese state propaganda.
Don't worry folks, FactCheck dot org is on the case and they said there's no way it came from a lab.
Forbes strongly declared: the Wuhan lab leak theory (which they refer to as a hypothesis) a "conspiracy theory," not science. Will they retract?
Did USA Today have a crystal ball to determine that COVD-19 was neither "manmade or engineered"?
Full Fact seems a little half-baked in its claim that there was "no evidence that the 2019 coronavirus originated in a Chinese government laboratory."
The New York Times called it a "fringe theory." To their credit, they did a bunch of follow-up articles later on questioning the validity of the claim that it's just nonsense.
Democracy does indeed "die in darkness," Washington Post.
The list goes on. I could keep going and delve into how social media platforms actively censored any conversations on the COVID-19 lab leak theory but that's a thread for another day and has already been covered to some extent by the #TwitterFiles.

Harry Potter is now “harmful” to the trans community so they want it banned from streaming service Twitch. Image
We must make the whole internet a safe and welcoming place for trans people. By banning everyone and everything that offends them.
You gave them an inch and they took a nautical mile.

If you can’t trust this they/them to give you solid financial planning advice, who can you trust?
Yes. It’s a real article and the author repeatedly refers to they/them as “themself.” businessinsider.com/ethical-invest…
It’s as bad as you can imagine. River instructs they/their clients to invest in refugee-oriented NGOs and denounces capitalism as white supremacy.

German police find themselves stuck in the mud while protecting a coal mine that’s being besieged by climate protesters who want to shut it down amid one of the country’s worst energy shortages.

If these were anti-lockdown protesters they’d be allowed to beat them up and arrest them.
The climate protesters serve the same cause as the establishment. These actions are fully sanctioned. The police are just pawns, deployed for security theater, to keep the public ignorant of their goals.

Anyone else remember the panic over toilet paper? Let's never do this again.
It was a sophisticated nudging operation to prime the public for resource shortages, mess up the supply chain and transport, and instill a sense of terror and panic in a populace that wasn’t yet at the time ready to embrace lockdowns, mandates and the repeal of personal freedoms.
Or as Elon Musk called it, a psyop.
