WaPo Fact-Checker Admits the Media Suppressed the ‘Lab-Leak’ Story to Discredit Trump

Sur­prise, surprise.

We men­tioned ear­li­er that The Wash­ing­ton Post changed its posi­tion overnight on the “lab-leak” theory:

There have been per­sis­tent rumors that the Wuhan Insti­tute of Virol­o­gy was study­ing the Coro­n­avirus, and that the virus escaped the lab. The media ridiculed the rumor until yes­ter­day; today they abrupt­ly announced that the lab-leak the­o­ry is plausible.

Why? WaPo fact-check­er Glenn Kessler has open­ly admit­ted that he used his job to dis­cred­it Trump as much as pos­si­ble, in addi­tion to say­ing he was­n’t going to fact-check Biden the way he did Trump.

Now Kessler’s admit­ting the rea­son he and the rest of the MMMs squelched the lab-leak rumor is sim­ple: Because it offered a price­less oppor­tu­ni­ty to dis­cred­it Trump and accuse him of loony con­spir­a­cy theories.

Raise your hand if this shocks you.

Any­one? Any­one? Bueller?
