Washington Post Says Time to ‘Get Serious’ About Investigating COVID Origins

More than a year ago, the idea of a lab leak as the origin of the COVID pandemic was dismissed by the Washington Post.

The theory was first publicized by Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) and later latched onto by Trump’s White House.

That was enough for most major outlets, including the Washington Post, to dismiss it, but now they are having second thoughts.

Get Serious

President Trump was literally laughed at when he suggested the idea of a lab leak as the source of the pandemic.

Now, however, with Biden in office and more calls being made to investigate this possibility, the Washington Post has decided to change its position.

The Post’s editorial board wrote, “An impressive roster of political leaders and experts in science and public health have called for a comprehensive investigation of the pandemic’s origins and potential future dangers… Now is the time to turn all the talk into action.”

After slamming the WHO’s first investigation, the report went on to say, “If China continues to resist, then independent investigations should proceed without it.

“The more time that passes, the harder it will be to find the truth. No opportunity should be missed to draw lessons from a global catastrophe that has taken nearly 4 million lives.”

This big change comes after a 2020 piece in the Post was headlined, “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus conspiracy theory that was already debunked,” only it was never truly debunked, only dismissed.

The paper has since issued a retraction of the headline and a correction, but the damage has already been done.

The media got what it wanted… Trump removed from office.

We can only imagine how much progress would have already been made on this front had the media honestly investigated these claims from the outset.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

BIDEN: "It's gonna take time to get inflation back to normal levels."

18 months ago, the Biden administration was calling inflation "transitory."

My message to President Biden at the White House today:
- Secure the border
- End COVID vaccine mandates in the military
- No more reckless spending

"I explained to the president what I saw [at the border]," says @GOPLeader.

"Where you can see the videos of these cartels literally shooting tracers at our National Guard, a woman hung because she didn't pay the cartel."
