The Washington Post has discretely changed a 15 month old headline claiming that the Wuhan Lab theory was a “conspiracy theory,” and that it was already debunked.
The Daily Caller wrote, “ The Post’s original headline from Feb. 17, 2020, read, “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus conspiracy theory that was already debunked.”
The headline was updated to read, “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus fringe theory that scientists have disputed,” along with a correction that said the Post’s use of the words “debunked” and “conspiracy theory” have “been removed because, then as now, there was no determination about the origins of the virus.”
The change comes shortly after President Joe Biden ordered a 90 day investigation into the origins of COVID-19.
On top of this, British intelligence agencies have also called the Wuhan lab leak theory “feasible”. Some scientists also claim to have concrete evidence of human manipulation in the virus. These scientists say that there is no genetic ancestor of COVID-19, and therefore it could not have evolved naturally.
If the Washington Post had made sure, that what they said was supported by concrete fact, they would have no need to correct themselves. But instead, the organization and its writers are more concerned with pushing a narrative and demonizing republicans
