60 Minutes Attempts to Walk Back Doubts
Over Covid Lab Leak Theory

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 3/6/2023 2:50:56 AM

The long-established, once viewed as credible journalism CBS News program, 60 Minutes, attempted to clear the air about the origins of COVID-19 after a year of declaring the lab-leak theory "debunked." After FBI Director Christopher Wray agreed with the bombshell report by the Washington Street Journal, revealing that the United States Department of Energy concluded that COVID "most likely arose from a laboratory leak," 60 Minutes is walking back their previous comments about the matter. In May 2020, CBS News's Scott Pelley cast significant doubt over the Trump Administration's assertions that the virus was leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China saying,

Any person who had the educational level of a 2nd grader knew China was lying. And our government, for whatever reason (kickback money?), was playing right along with them. Power and control are powerful aphrodisiacs for the political elites. And OMG, what else are they cooking up in that lab right now this very minute?

60 Minutes’ trustworthiness went bye-bye decades ago. Remember when they left the Brown and Williamson whistleblower twisting in the wind over the heavily-edited story on Big Tobacco in the mid-90s? CBS corporate used the pretext (played dumb) on the smear campaign against Jeffrey Wigant (of ‘The Insider’ fame) to redact the story because of the threat of litigation might kill the sale of CBS to Westinghouse at the time. The reputation of 60 Minutes never recovered over that and their current walkback over the reporting of the COVID scandal is just another data point.

FTA: "the answers they gave we found to be believable, correct, and convincing." The answers were believable only to those who wanted to believe for a reason or did not understand. For the virus to exist naturally would require too many mutations in the virus to occur in the time period available for them to occur. There is a known time period in which mutations occur in any organism, this is known to scientists who have been stating this from the beginning but have been ignored because of what the demigod Fauci has been spouting.

60 Minutes has been a DNC propaganda machine for years. When their lies are exposed, they double down and tell bigger lies to cover them up. Stahl is the worst. After she called President Trump a liar to his face, telling him that "we have standards here...", she lost any modicum of credibility she had. It was later exposed that she in fact had been the liar, but she never apologized.

So their defense is that they were duped and lied to by the Chinese about the source of the virus. This excuse may have some holes since they helped fund it and fully participated. There is correspondence and documentation to prove it. They may want to rethink that strategy.

I haven't watched 60 Minutes since that earing wearing hack Ed Bradley died back in 2006. Back then that leftist democrat supporting show along with its network CBS went out of their way to report everything my then Commander-in-Chief GWB did in a negative light. The President much to my dismay never said or did anything to defend himself against the fake news attacks from CBS and the other networks. The half-hearted attempts to walk back their blatant lies about the origins of COVID still will never get them back their decades long lost credibility.

The Democrats have assumed quite a few different kinds of attitudes over the course of the last year and all surrounding one topic; the events of January 6. First, they were horrified and scared of being harmed, then they were righteously furious, then they were stoically pursuing justice. Their noble quest to bring the guilty to justice over an attempted “insurrection” was one of epic proportions and they would stop at nothing to right the wrongs and protect the country from the murderous and treasonous machinations of Trump and those who consider themselves MAGA fanatics. But then midterms happened. The Democrats lost their majority in the House

The House Speaker insisted while speaking with reports outside his office on Tuesday that he had not yet seen what Carlson put on his show Monday night and therefore would not comment. He also tore into Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for criticizing Fox for airing the footage, claiming that he should also then denounce CNN for revealing the secure locations of lawmakers the day of the Capitol riot.

Over the course of two years, hundreds of witness interviews, and 10 highly choreographed public hearings, Democrats in Congress sought to create a carefully constructed story of the January 6th Capitol Hill riots. How fitting that such an extravagant outlay of government resources would be thrown on the trash heap by a single cable news segment. On Monday night, Fox News' Tucker Carlson played never-before-seen footage of the Capitol riot. The closed-circuit security tape appears to show the notorious, so-called QAnon Shaman (a.k.a. Jacob Chansley) being led through the halls of Congress by police. The video has no audio, so we can't hear what the police told Chansley. But we can see

Tucker Carlson released never-before-seen footage from the Jan. 6, 2021 riots at Capitol Hill that appear to dispel several narratives pushed by the Democrat-controlled House Select Committee and the legacy media. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy granted "Tucker Carlson Tonight" an exclusive first look to over 40,000 hours of security camera footage from the Capitol Building that were hidden from the public for over two years. On Monday, Carlson offered the first glimpses of footage involving key figures from that day. Carlson concluded the footage proves that lawmakers and the media were "lying" about the events that took place on Jan. 6.

Mayor Eric Adams wants the Big Apple’s retailers to make customers remove their masks in a bid to stem the ongoing shoplifting epidemic — but some merchants are wary of how they’re going to enforce that. “We are putting out a clear call to all of our shops: Do not allow people to enter the store without taking off their face mask,” Adams said Monday on 1010 WINS radio. “And then once they’re inside, they can continue to wear it if they so desire to do so. Adams said the move would help cops “use the technology we have available to identify those shoplifters and those who are committing serious crimes.”
