Over the past few weeks, and much to the chagrin of the ChiComs (despite a daily onslaught of blame-shifting by their state-run media), the dam seems to have been broken on discussing and debating the origin of their virus. For the past year, Big Tech and the Democrat-media complex have pushed the zoonotic disease theory (i.e., the virus jumped from an animal – supposedly a bat – to a human) as the “science-based” explanation for the emergence of the virus while squelching and ridiculing any discussion that the virus may have been accidentally (or even purposely) leaked from a laboratory – the primary candidate being the biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). Facebook and Twitter in particular have suspended the accounts of people who have discussed scientific analyses pointing to the lab leak theory as being correct.

Before examining what the ChiCom media are saying about the virus origins these days, a correlation of forces seems to have precipitated a flurry of media reports in Western media that have “resurrected” the lab origin theory:

First, Nicholas Wade, a former long-time science writer at The New York Times wrote a lengthy article detailing the science that led him to make this conclusion:

[T]he more months pass without the natural emergence theory gaining a shred of supporting evidence, the less plausible it may seem. Perhaps the international community of virologists will come to be seen as a false and self-interested guide. The common sense perception that a pandemic breaking out in Wuhan might have something to do with a Wuhan lab cooking up novel viruses of maximal danger in unsafe conditions could eventually displace the ideological insistence that whatever Trump said can’t be true.

Subsequently, Wade has given a number of video interviews explaining the case for his lab-leak theory, including this one:

[As an aside, check out the book by British historian Paul Johnson in the upper right corner of the library behind Wade in that video. It is Johnson’s seminal work, “The History of the American People,” which I
