MSM Admits They Opposed The Truth About China Because GOP Supported It
This is just another reason that the MSM needs to stop with all of the partisan news coverage. They were so against Trump that they covered for China just to be on the opposite side of Trump. The MSM it appears is now realizing the error of its ways and is admitting that COVID likely leaked from a lab in China.
"Journalists continued to acknowledge Sunday that the media's longstanding dismissal of the Wuhan "lab-leak" theory was in part due to Republicans pitching it.
Once widely cast aside as a racist "conspiracy theory" and "fringe" nonsense, the possibility that the coronavirus accidentally leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology has gained increasing credence in recent weeks. The saga has led to yet another reckoning for mainstream media journalists about groupthink and bias in the industry. Faced with criticism that they blasted the theory last year for political reasons, some reporters have admitted its Republican origins with figures like Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., former President Donald Trump, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, played into why they disparaged it.
ABC News Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl suggested on ABC's "This Week" Sunday that figures like Trump and Pompeo were not taken seriously by members of the media, saying "now serious people are saying it needs a serious inquiry.
"Yes, I think a lot of people have egg on their face," Karl said. "This was an idea that was first put forward by Mike Pompeo, secretary of state, Donald Trump, and look some things may be true even if Donald Trump said them. Because Trump was saying so much else, that was just out of control, and because he was, you know, making a frankly racist appeal talking about Kung Flu, and the China virus, he said flatly this came from that lab, and it was widely dismissed ... but now serious people are saying it needs a serious inquiry."

This is a sign that we may be heading towards an actual conflict with China as we are no longer brushing this under the rug. Biden also admitting that China plans to take over the United States by 2030 is also a major indicator as well. So it looks like Australia was right about hearing the drums of war on the horizon.
