The man who worked on coronaviruses with Wuhan Institute of Virology’s “Bat Woman” Dr. Shi Zhengli as long ago as 2013, whose company gave WIV $800,000 in funding to study bat coronaviruses from 2014-2019, and who served as a Facebook COVID fact-checker, is bitterly clinging to the narrative that the pandemic originated at the wet market in Wuhan.
Oh, yeah. This guy, Peter Daszak, also controlled more than $120 million in research grant funding from the US government, to conduct research on viruses and potentially create a universal flu vaccine. After listening to his comments on this week’s episode of “60 Minutes,” I’m not sure I trust this scientific mind. After everything that’s been published over the last month, including a letter signed by virologists he’s worked with for decades asking for an impartial look into a potential lab leak origin and a Wall Street Journal piece outlining the scientific evidence tending to show that SARS-CoV-2 was man-made, Daszak still unequivocally believes that the virus originated naturally and that the pandemic started at the Wuhan wet market.
So, here’s how it went down. Lesley Stahl and her CBS News colleagues decided to finally air an episode about the credibility (or lack thereof) of the lab leak origin theory. The episode started with Stahl decrying China’s lack of transparency throughout the entire pandemic as if she and all of the others in the MSM hadn’t been covering for the Chinese Communist Party for the past 18 months and admitting that the recently-released WHO report was a sham because of that lack of transparency. Her first guest, Jamie Metzl, who is a former NSC official who served in the Clinton administration and member of a WHO advisory committee on genetic engineering, signed an open letter along with two dozen colleagues in March 2021, calling for a new and independent investigation into the pandemic’s origin.
Metzl told Stahl:
“Everybody around the world is imagining this is some kind of full investigation. It’s not. This group of experts only saw what the Chinese government wanted them to see.
“While they were there
