Episode 3: Media Lying Again About the Origin of the Virus

Yes, the corporate media is lying to you again about the origin of the virus

I laid out the facts in an earlier episode of the Red White & Blind show: The mainstream corporate media—and the New York Times in particular—hasn’t yet in three years published a neutral piece on the question of the virus’s origin.

Just after I released that video, more evidence emerged favoring the likelihood of a lab origin. But once again, rather than present that evidence fairly, a new round of corporate media narrative management has besieged us.

So this episode explores the newest revelations and the latest narrative control on perhaps the most important questions of our time: Where Did that Virus Come From?

I Suppose I Told You So

Long before I made either episode, I penned a long treatise on this topic of the origin of sars-cov-2. At the time, way back in the summer of 2021, I was only about 85% certain about my conclusions, and so I approached the topic with attention, care, and curiosity. The media was presenting the story at the time as if it were still an 85% certainty the other way—that the virus had originated through “natural zoonosis.” I knew that was wrong. I undertook many weeks of research, and I published a piece in June 2021 entitled Where Did the Virus Come From? You can still read it there on my blog.

I was simply “following the science.” But I lost subscribers and even some friends for publishing the piece.

At this point, two years later, virtually everything I wrote in that piece has proved to be true. And yet the fear and doubt disseminated by the corporate media has clouded many Americans’ vision. This episode clearly presents the latest information.

One More Thing

Incidentally, shortly after I began making this second video, even more evidence emerged favoring the lab leak hypothesis. The US Senate Health Committee released its two-year study on precisely this question—the provenance of sars-cov-2, the virus that ushered in one of the great catastrophes of human history. The results are ably summarized by indepedent journalist Saagar Enjeti at Breaking Points, one of the independent media sources I highlight in my recommended Balanced Media Diet.

You might want to watchi his video after you watch mine.

This is how I see it at this time. Let me know in the comments if there are elements to the story you think I’m missing.

Many thanks.
