What a difference a year makes.

Media, Big Tech, and folks in power like Dr. Anthony Fauci went all-in to squash any thought of the virus being the result of a lab leak or any of the other theories people were postulating about it.

It’s now a year later, and the veil over the subject has been ripped away, with media finally reporting on it all. Our own Scott Hounsell has been doing bang-up reporting and you can see his latest here on the cover-up.

Now, polls are showing that finally hearing the evidence that is out there is having an effect on Americans.

Independents told the tale again, with 65% of Independents now believing it.

From Washington Examiner:

“When it comes to the more specific circumstances of the virus’ emergence, 24% think it was created in a laboratory and was released on purpose, 18% think it was lab-created and escaped by accident, while a further 12% think it was a naturally occurring disease that was being examined in a laboratory but was released
