NewsBusters Podcast: Big Tech Mangling of COVID, Climate, and Hunter Biden

March 15th, 2023 10:41 PM

The "misinformation" police in Big Tech (and its affiliated "fact checkers") have squashed entire story lines in the last three years, from COVID and its origins in Wuhan to Hunter Biden's laptop to the rebuttals of "climate deniers." On Page A-20 of Sunday's Washington Post they reported that the House voted 419-0 to declassify intelligence on the origins of Covid. For years, arguing the most obvious origin story -- that the virus emerged from the Wuhan lab working on the coronavirus -- was dismissed as a Trump talking point.

Hunter Biden's laptop was dismissed as having "all the hallmarks of Russian misinformation." Then in 2022, "legacy media" outlets started acknowledging that the laptop contents were authentic and newsworthy. No one ever apologizes for all the shaming and the dismissing and the censoring that resulted from the liberals pouncing energetically on anything perceived to have a positive effect on Trump's fortunes.

MRC Free Speech America chief Dan Schneider joins the show to discuss these topics, something called the "Christchurch Call to Action," and the broader strokes of Western civilization. Enjoy the podcast below or wherever you listen to podcasts.
