(FreedomBeacon.com)- Shocking new reports have revealed that Peter Daszak, a U.S. investigator working on the World Health Organization’s mission to investigate the origins of the COVID-19 virus in China, has used his personal Twitter account to repeatedly promote Chinese state media outlets.
In other words, a man expected to be unbiased in his gathering of evidence and analysis has promoted Chinese propaganda several times.
The National Pulse revealed that the outlet most regularly shared by Daszak is the China Global Television Network, which has been described as a “long-standing weapon in Beijing’s arsenal of repression.”
Daszak has even appeared on CGTN, and promoted his appearances by praising the news anchors and TV show hosts as “fantastic” and “sharp.”
In one interview, Daszak gushed over how important it is for the world to collaborate with China on matters of science.

So it’s perhaps unsurprising that Daszak and the rest of the team are reportedly set to reject any suggestion that the COVID-19 virus came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Speaking at a conference set up by the Chatham House think tank earlier this month, senior members of Daszak’s team said that they will put forward a “frozen food theory” to explain the origins of the virus.
“We found there was a conduit from Wuhan to the provinces in South China where the closest relative viruses to SARS-Covid 2 are found in bats,” Daszak said.
‘So that’s quite important – it provides a link and a pathway by which the virus could convincingly spill over from wildlife either into people or animals farmed in the region and shipped into the Wuhan market by some means,” he added.
It was the original theory of the origin of the virus, but President Trump’s administration officials agreed with Australian officials that some evidence pointed to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Among other things, the decision to close roads surrounding the Wuhan laboratory raised eyebrows.
Experts claim that the virus may have come from a “frozen wild animal,” and if that is the case put forward by the WHO, it lets China off the hook for its lax safety procedures in its laboratories.
