On February 27th, it was reported that the Department of Energy believed that the most probable reason for the origination of COVID-19 was a laboratory leak in the city of Wuhon. COVID-19 has been a polarizing topic by both sides of the news and the origination of the viral disease is now widely disputed.
All news is biased, here are both sides:
Left Bias: The DOE findings were in low confidence and non-conclusive.
The Department of Energy is a minority amongst its peers. Most federal agencies are still unsure of the origination of COVID-19 or believe it to be natural from human exposure to an infected animal. Additionally, even with the DOE's assessment was reported with 'low confidence'
"Intelligence agencies can make assessments with either low, medium or high confidence, and a low confidence assessment generally means that the information obtained is not reliable enough or is too fragmented to make a more definitive analytic judgment." - CNN, Paul Lablanc
It is still inconclusive on how COVID-19 originated and where. Additionally, the reason for the cause of COVID-19 should be to prevent the next one and not assign blame like the republicans are attempting to do.
Right Bias: Of course it was a lab leak, of course masks don't work, and of course the vaccine was a money grab
The revelation that COVID-19 started from a Chinese lab leak is not a surprise to anyone but those that have been 'COVID blind' through this whole pandemic. Those that spewed lies about COVID-19, stoking fear, and raking in profits deserve to be prosecuted for their misinformation.
"And we have an administration that doesn't have the guts to go forward and get the truth out of them. And we paid for that part of it all. We paid for the damn lab." - Rep. Jeff Van Drew
The worst part of the whole thing is that the American tax payers supported the lab in Wuhan that through Chinese negligence started a global pandemic. The Obama administration funded COVID-19 and Fauci made millions by embellishing the virus.
