WaPO walks back ’debunked conspiracy theory’ of Wuhan lab leak coverage

The WaPo is the latest media outlet to reverse its earlier insistence that the Wuhan lab leak theory was a ’debunked conspiracy theory.’ The newspaper has issued a retraction of an article published in February 2020. ’Earlier versions of this story and its headline inaccurately characterized comments by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) regarding the origins of the coronavirus,’ states the retraction.

Why was there so much bad reporting during the last election period? I am sure there was a lot of covid "cases" that could have been avoided without the mass misinformation from the media.

They’ve labeled every single thing that goes against the official/approved narrative as “conspiracy theory “ and positioned themselves as the only source of truth and the gatekeepers of “science” and “fact” , when in fact, they are the prime peddlers of propaganda and lies. They forget that there still exist some people that have the ability to think, investigate and determine for themselves, what is fact, and that some actually still remember what REAL science is and does. But they’ve turned their programmed cult followers against anyone who dares to think for themselves and taught them to dismiss any other thought, suggesting or even evidence, as “conspiracy theory “.

In other words “Trump was right, but we weren’t about to tell you that last year, because you might have voted for him if we did.”

Leftists will completely pretend this didn't happen. They have no morality or justice. They'll just switch their opinion. We were always at war with east Asia.. or is it eurasia?;)

Interesting how the usual pack of pompous Lefty commenters are silent in the comments on this one.

I still want to know how this was "debunked" in the first place other than orange man bad reasons. I mean if thats all it takes, its clear most MSM outlets are at best tabloids, and at worse propaganda platforms.

Wapo should be called "The Walking it Back Post," since fake news has already been passed over, or maybe call it "The Circling Back to That Post."

Not a good look for WaPo but this is just result of reactionary journalism attempting to counter the conservative narrative of the virus being some kind of antagonism from CCP against the US at the time. Spent all their time and energy trying to find someone to blame when White House media resources should have been going into mitigation.

Most informed people know the WaPo is compromised and therefore just a tabloid for left.

The mainstream media always tells what is convenient for them selves. They are not here to tell the truth, only what fits theire narrative.

Fauci had been saying all along to Investigate the Wuhan lab, he just didn't jump to conclusions like the cultists and proclaim it was a bioweapon being made in a lab.https://youtu.be/q8pr1bztdvQ
