Mainstream Media Admits It Dismissed Lab Leak Theory Because Sen. Cotton Espoused It

“On Sunday, a senior writer for The New York Times suggested that the mainstream media dismissed the theory espoused by Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton… that COVID-19 escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, simply because they refused to consider that Cotton, an avowed conservative, might be correct,” Daily Wire writes.

New York Times writer David Leonhardt appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” to discuss the lab leak theory, and admitted, “a lot of people on the political left and a lot of people in the media made this mistake. They said, ‘Well, if Tom Cotton is saying something, it can’t be true,’ they assumed that.”
