‘Unfiltered’ host Dan Bongino shed light on similarities between media coverage of the COVID-19 lab leak and Hunter Biden stories on ‘Fox & Friends Weekend’ on Saturday, reacting to a Vanity Fair investigation that revealed that a government-funded research company had tried to silence the COVID lab leak theory. Bongino ripped mainstream media for dismissing both stories “in exactly the same way” to avoid damaging the “left-wing political narrative”.
WHATEVER BIDEN TALKS, HE DOES ‘WORSE’: DAN BONGINO
DAN BONGINO: See the similarities here between the story of the lab leak and the story of Hunter Biden’s laptop? … So you have a story that would be detrimental to the leftist political narrative, right? A set of so-called experts are working as go-betweens to crush this story. They pass it on to a bunch of level one clowns in the media who don’t report anything and sadly repeat it. This story hurts Donald Trump. Wash, rinse, repeat, right?
Now the media is supposed to shut this stuff down… in April 2020 there were emails saying the lab leak was the most likely hypothesis, right? A group of experts, Daszak and his group, get together and say, “Hey, even though the evidence is overwhelming that a lab that’s studying coronaviruses in an area of China that’s had a coronavirus outbreak, that had data cell phone in the area saying they may have shut down the lab because of some type of accident afterwards We have to shut this down Gullible media because Donald Trump said it was probably from a lab leak from China, then get information from experts, use fact checkers to crush anyone telling the truth.
Tell me how that same thing didn’t happen with the Hunter Biden story… This time it’s intelligence experts, [who] step in and say, “That’s not real. The silly clown media says, “Yeah, that’s not real, Scooby,” and they write this story and it just magically goes off, hurting Donald Trump. Exactly the same story twice.
