(FreedomBeacon.com)- You’ve heard the news about Dr. Anthony Fauci, right? The Intercept revealed last week how the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases appears to have lied to Congress about the issue of American funding of gain-of-function research in China, and it’s so damning that the left-wing media has immediately started covering for him.
After The Intercept revealed documents from a Freedom of Information Act request that they say show Fauci lied, only right-wing or right-leaning media outlets appear to have covered it.
Fox News reported how the story, which alleges that $3.1 million was given by the U.S. government to an American health group called EcoHealth Alliance that then gave $600,000 to Wuhan scientists to genetically manipulate bat coronaviruses, was not covered by any left-wing news outlets.
Fox said that MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN all completely ignored the story throughout Tuesday and Wednesday, as the story was breaking. Grabien transcripts show that the story was not covered once during this time, even though Dr. Anthony Fauci was making himself available to the press.
On Tuesday, the disgraced public health official appeared on CNN and MSNBC to talk about the ongoing pandemic and vaccines but avoided the story completely.
It wasn’t just the TV outlets, either. Major newspapers and news outlets like The Associated Press, Axios, Politico, USA Today, and the New York Times all ignored the story.
If the information published by The Intercept is true – and it appears to be – then it means that Dr. Anthony Fauci was not telling the truth when he told Congress that no U.S. money was given to Wuhan scientists to perform dangerous gain-of-function research.
