(The Christian Post) A conservative media watchdog has accused corporate media outlets of engaging in censorship by failing to cover the release of documents confirming that the U.S. government did fund gain-of-function research at a virology lab in China despite multiple assertions to the contrary.
Last Monday, The Intercept released more than 900 pages of documents showing that the U.S. funded high-risk experiments at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology, where many believe the coronavirus pandemic first originated. According to Johns Hopkins University, the coronavirus pandemic has killed more than 4.6 million people worldwide, including more than 659,000 in the U.S.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden, has repeatedly denied that the U.S. government has funded gain-of-function research. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has defined gain-of-function research as “juicing up naturally occurring animal viruses to infect humans.”
