For weeks now, the liberal media has been scolding anyone who dared to suggest that the Coronavirus may have originated in a lab in China.
They have accused people, including Senator Tom Cotton, of pushing a conspiracy theory.
Now, it looks like this was the case after all.
Bret Baier and Gregg Re of FOX News report:
Sources believe coronavirus originated in Wuhan lab as part of China’s efforts to compete with US
There is increasing confidence that COVID-19 likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory not as a bioweapon, but as part of China’s effort to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.
This may be the “costliest government coverup of all time,” one of the sources said.
The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus was bat-to-human, and that “patient zero” worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.
The “increasing confidence” comes from classified and open-source documents and evidence, the sources said. Fox News has requested to see the evidence directly.
Asked by Fox News’ John Roberts about the reporting, President Trump remarked at Wednesday’s coronavirus press briefing, “More and more we’re hearing the story…we are doing a very thorough examination of this horrible situation.”
Here’s the video report:
How about that.
The Press treated stories suggesting that Coronavirus could have come from a Lab as "Conspiracy Theories"
Evidence is quickly mounting that it might be true and that the Wet Market narrative was made up as a distraction. pic.twitter.com/PtM46QYrcf

Lots of media outlets — including the Washington Post — owe @SenTomCotton an apology for claiming that he was pushing a "conspiracy theory" for saying the Wuhan outbreak could have originated in this laboratory. The Post's own reporting now confirms this is a real possibility. https://t.co/e0g9QSF98c

It’s just one more reason why people don’t trust the media.
