  1. I'm sorry but "blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes"? I'm sure by now you realize that's inaccurate. Be honest. This wasn't the only thing he had right that sounded preposterous.

  2. Is it just me or is anyone else wondering WHY, when a document is properly requested under FOYA, are so many documents redacted? If they are available shouldn't they be turned over as PER THE LAW?

  3. Thank you Robby for exposing the real xenophobes on the left… eating bats for so many years and no problem… suddenly it is?. It's the lab… stop being a xenophone… LOL

  4. Wet market theory is 100% more zenophobic sounding than the lab leak theory, and anyone who says they didn't believe the lab leak theory because it sounded zenophobic is a liberal airhead.

  5. And this is a new host, a woman who disregarded a very likely theory because she thinks white supremacy right away. That’s not a journalist. That’s an activist.

  6. The initial days it was couched as a potentially bad epidemic in A city in China. Then my party, the the Dems, politicized it. Then Pres Trump responded in a n irrational juvenile manner, then the Dems and media jumped at the opportunity to make a political payday from it.

  7. First you complain that they never considered and dismissed the lab leak theory. Now you know they did, but your unhappy hat you don’t know the full details of what they discussed.

    This does not bolster the lab leak theory, nor does it show the leak occurred. All it shows is that your earlier “reporting” on what they did was wrong.

  8. Us ‘conspiracy theorists’ have a better record then CNN or any government agency.
    Who told the social media networks and news networks to deny lab leak like you life depended on it and to call people racists? They all just come up with that simultaneously?

  9. Emily is the authority in this discussion since none of it should be discussed as "theory". It's all factual and undidacted FOIYA requests showing the receipt of funds pulled from UNC by Fauci and accepted by "the bat lady" for gain of function work. The Woohan Wet Market, only sounds disgusting when it is not that at all involved. It never had any influence in this gain of function work. The furin cleavage site of the mRNA further is an indication of a man made product. And, remember, too, that Congress passed the "non-liability bill" for pharmaceutical companies on 2/17/2020. It held them blameless for any drugs produced during this "emergency use" time. This was done at a time when we weren't even testing for covid! Long short, give Emily the reins to find all the facts. They are in plain site and have been since 2020.

  10. I’m a black guy…why do you always have a black woman on the show to invoke racism into a non racial issue?!?!. Put on black people for their educated perspective, not to burp, “that racist” whenever the camera’s on.

  11. @13:50 There was no xenophobia. It's something that was trumped up (pun intended) to fuel the rage. If you disagree, see Zika, Hanta, Ebola and every other virus' etymology. I mean the Chinese media was calling it Wuhan virus before they were shutdown for political reasons. Oh, and Lyme disease. Those poor CT folks.
