With Fauci’s emails getting released, it’s opened a whole new can of worms on the origins of COVID-19 and the initial response to it.
During a recent segment on The Five, Greg Gutfeld went deep into the media’s response in the early days of the virus, or more specifically the lack thereof.
Gutfeld points out that when COVID-19 was starting to rage throughout China, the media was focusing 100% of their time on that first sham impeachment.
Instead of looking at the illness that was sweeping through China, they chose to give 24-hour coverage to a phony impeachment that in the end failed miserably.
And also, it’s fair to note, the Dems did the exact same thing. They didn’t care about the virus – all they cared about what impeaching Trump.
“I love how the media talked about how pristine Fauci’s emails were like that lady, Nicolle what’s-her-face? Wallace — ‘Oh, they’re so wonderful’ — They neglected to say that it’s his government email. He has a separate personal email. It is common for everybody to keep their government emails as bland as possible,” Gutfeld said, adding that he had always considered Fauci to be a bureaucrat and was not as furious with him as some seemed to be.

“I’m more disgusted by the media, surprise, who once again, they refused to do their job. They are supposed to be heroes. Aren’t they supposed to open up the can of worms? When somebody says it’s a can of worms, they are supposed to like dive right onto the can, open it up and suck all of the worms down,” Gutfeld continued, immediately realizing that his analogy was not the best.
“They did not do any legwork to dismiss the theory. They preferred to mock those who mentioned the theory as either stupid or racist. They kind of replaced their journalism with an anti-Trump fervor that caused them to miss perhaps the biggest story of their lives,” Gutfeld concluded. “Instead, they chose impeachment theater as the disease exploded because they wanted the optics, and because of that, hundreds of thousands of people died. So I blamed the Democrats on that because that is what they would do to Republicans.”
“To be fair, I mean, whether or not it was a lab leak or was a wet meat lab, I don’t think — the death number it would have still been the same,” cohost Richard Fowler argued.
“If they knew it came from a lab, they could have buttoned everything up,” Lisa Kennedy pushed back as the show cut to a commercial break.
The media only started focusing on COVID when it appeared to be a way to cripple Trump.
Again, proving how all of this is just politics.
Can you imagine how different things would’ve been if they had approached this virus earlier and from a different angle?
