Jimmy Dore: Chris Hayes Wrong On Lab Leak While Being A Partisan Hack

This is a big one to get wrong, Chris.

You should have stuck with “we don’t know where the virus came from.”

Newsweek:

“In February 2020, Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton asked a provocative question: Was there some relationship between COVID-19 emerging in the Chinese city of Wuhan and the fact that there’s a biochemical lab in the city that specializes in studying coronaviruses? Was it possible that this lab was studying an animal who carried the virus and failed to properly secure it?”

We don’t have evidence that this disease originated there,” Cotton said of the lab, “but because of China’s duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning, we need to at least ask the question to see what the evidence says, and China right now is not giving evidence on that question at all.” …

Increasingly, the space for nonpartisan journalism that aggressively seeks the truth is shrinking.

It should hardly be a surprise that Americans are rapidly losing faith in the media. As the story of the lab leak hypothesis shows, too many in our current news media environment are quick to politicize their coverage and seek the truth only when it’s convenient for their faction. Ultimately, this will only continue to degrade the credibility of the American press, which may benefit forces like the Chinese Communist Party in more ways than one. …”

It always sounded reasonable to me.

We didn’t rule out either hypothesis on this website. We only pushed back against the nonsense that COVID was a massive worldwide hoax and that the government was planning forced vaccinations. It was a real virus. It was a deadly virus that killed sick, old and fat people.

  1. If you do not know that Mr. Hayes is a star player for United States’ Government lies & misinformation lies, then you are likely one of a very small number of Americans who still pay any attention to MSNBCIA-Channel 1.

  2. When is someone in the media going to mention the Lugar Center? Why TF is a virus research facility named after a former US government office holder doing in Tiblisi, Georgia?

    The Lugar Research Center came to the public’s attention in 2017, when Russian authorities repeatedly alleged that the center was engaged in biological weapons development for the United States.

  3. Lab leak followed by a gamble by the chinks that they could decimate whitey economically without it looking like an attack. Just let oeoe flee Wuhan.

    • What happened to the Irish hate for the Muslims? And by the way Mick how did a bunch of Muslims with box cutters bring down building seven? I am still waiting for my answer on that one from you Irish geniuses.

      When are you going to tell us the Chinese did 911? I know it is on the tip of your tongue Mick.

      You want to go to hell that is your business Mick, but don’t try to take the rest of with you. It is disgusting.

  4. Covid coming out of a CCP lab is a problem because it contradicts the official narrative that White people are bad, the source of all the world’s troubles and should be replaced with Third World wogs. Instead the truth is that China, striving to be a First World country and succeeding in many ways ran their Bio Hazard Level IV lab like any Third World country would, with disastrous results. For a while the focus was also on the disgusting “wet markets” as a possible cause with one of them only a few hundred yards from the Wuhan Lab.

    It looks like the Chinese fucked up, plain and simple but that is an inconvenient truth as that idiot Al ‘dumbass’ Gore would say.

    Increasingly, the space for magical fairies aggressively blowing pixie dust is shrinking.

    We need to get back to the good old days when Magical Fairies were blowing pixie dust!

  6. If it was a biowarfare attack that originated with a lableak then it suggests that the left used a biological warfare assault to depose their own national leader, himself under an attack, then deliberatly trashed their own economic situation as if they were puppets on a string controlled by the very people who dud release the biological warfare agent. Don’t be beastly to the Mexicans!

    The left have enjoyed covid19 too much for it to be a chance coincidence.
