DISGRACEFUL: CNN Told ‘Journalists’ Not to Investigate Lab-Leak Theory

We have long understood that CNN was straying far from the journalistic path that they proclaim to be plodding along on, we can still find ourselves surprised about just how bad things really are.

The latest evidence of the dwindling network’s unethical behavior is as damning as it is disturbing, and demonstrates just how little they can be trusted.

Former CNN President Jeff Zucker ordered employees during then-President Donald J. Trump’s administration not to investigate the theory that the coronavirus pandemic was sparked by a lab leak in China, calling it a “Trump talking point,” according to a report.

A “well-placed CNN Insider” told Fox News Digital that Zucker issued the directive in the early stages of the pandemic.

On March 13, 2020, Harmeet Kauer, a “culture writer” for CNN, called the notion that the virus may have started in a laboratory a “fringe theory.”

Her colleague, Scottie Andrew, on April 13, 2020, wrote an article entitled “Nearly 30% in the US believe a coronavirus theory that’s almost certainly not true” in regards to the lab leak theory. It included the subheading, “Its origin is up for debate, but it wasn’t made in a lab.”

“There’s still much we don’t know about the coronavirus pandemic, but virus experts agree on one piece of its origin story: The virus likely originated in a bat, not in a Chinese lab,” he wrote.

Over the last few weeks, however, the lab-leak theory has grown legs, (nay; wings), and has become a rather plausible possibility.  This has irked a great many Americans, particularly those who were skeptical of the work of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

This week, Fauci’s figurative fingerprints were found all over an early-pandemic report regarding the lab leak theory – one that he may have used to direct his response to the crisis.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?
