3 Points the Media Is Still Getting Wrong About Wuhan Lab Theory, and the Documents to Prove It


The following is an excerpt from Sharyl Attkisson’s article in Epoch Times.

1. U.S. Taxpayer Money Did Go to Controversial ‘Gain of Function’ Research

Thanks to some confusing verbal gymnastics by Dr. Anthony Fauci, some in the media are giving the impression that there’s no proof U.S. tax money funded “gain of function” research or that, perhaps, the research didn’t qualify as gain of function. However, the evidence on this point is clear cut.

A 2015 published study specifically discloses that the research is gain of function research that took bat coronavirus that was harmless to people—and made it infectious in humans. The study further states that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) approved continuation of the research even amid a general ban on such studies.

2. The Gain of Function Research with China Did Not Only Receive U.S. Support and Money Through the Nonprofit ‘EcoHealth Alliance,’ but Also Directly

Many media reports refer to several millions of dollars in tax money sent from the NIH to the Wuhan lab via the New York-based nonprofit “EcoHealth Alliance.” However, research with the lab, and the lab itself, received significant additional U.S. support including:

  • Grants directly from the NIH.
  • Grants directly from Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the NIH.
  • Additional funds from EcoHealth Alliance that were initially undisclosed.

  1. Thank you for this helpful piece. It is almost laughable (if it wasn’t so serious) watching some of these talking heads try to back-track or place a misleading spin on these issues.

  2. Watching Leslie Stahl on 60 Minutes was embarrassing, as she yucked it up with Peter Daszak. She finally asked if he had a conflict, and big surprise, he said “no.” Seriously. Follow up question? No. Good enough for Leslie apparently. Does follow the money ring a bell Ms Stahl?
    Remember when 60 Minutes did actual journalism?
    Sharyl has become a national treasure and one of the very few remaining investigative journalists. Keep it up Sharyl! Please.
