Media Promotes CCP Sources While Claiming To “Debunk” Wuhan Lab Claims

( )- According to a shocking new report, an expert promoted by the left-wing press to discredit theories about COVID-19 being released from a Chinese laboratory actually has extensive ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

It completely destroys any legitimacy of media reports using the “expert” commentary and analysis by Dr. Ian Lipkin.

USA Today and CBS both used comments from Lipkin to discredit and debunk a scientific analysis made by Dr. Robert Redfield, asserting that evidence shows the virus could have been released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

You might remember that theory from the early days of the pandemic when the media and Big Tech insisted it was a lie.

Speaking to CBS, Lipkin said it was time to be “moving away from finger-pointing.”

How convenient.

He also claimed that there was “no evidence to suggest that it was created in a lab.”

But many officials disagree, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a substantial number of members of the intelligence community. In May 2020, Pompeo said that there is “enormous evidence” that the COVID outbreak originated in a Chinese laboratory.

“Look, the best experts so far seem to think it was manmade. I have no reason to disbelieve that at this point,” he said.

Media outlets tried to suppress the story then, and they’re still trying now.

A report from the National Pulse reveals how Lipkin received the International Science and Technology Cooperation Award in Beijing, in the Great Hall of People, in a ceremony that was presided over by President Xi Jinping in 2016.

A press release from the University of Columbia from last year also noted that the Chinese government “honored Ian Lipkin with a medal recognizing his profound impact on their country” and even confirmed that he has “worked closely with scientists and officials in China.”

Would he be asking the world to stop pointing the finger if he didn’t have these deep ties to China?

The most likely theory, according to scientists, is that the virus was transmitted from bats to an intermediary animal, where the virus then mutated and was spread to humans.

Either way, it came from China.
