Ted Cruz Crushes The Washington Post's Fact-Checker Over Chinese Lab Leak Report

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler following the release of an explosive U.S. intelligence report which revealed one federal agency believes the COVID-19 pandemic was the result of a Chinese lab leak.

As The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday, the U.S. Energy Department concluded that the origin of the pandemic was likely the result of a lab leak in Wuhan, China.

The latest findings suggest an abrupt change in what the U.S. energy department considers the virus’s origin.

The FBI also believes the pandemic originated from a Chinese lab leak.

The report added that the new conclusion was due to fresh intelligence “and is significant because the agency has considerable scientific expertise and oversees a network of U.S. national laboratories, some of which conduct advanced biological research.”

In May 2020, Ted Cruz responded to a tweet from Kessler in which he said the pandemic originated from a lab leak.

“‘Amazing’ is definitely right word for this video. WaPo ‘abandoning all pretenses of journalism to produce CCP propaganda’ would be another way to put it,” Cruz responded. “If this reporter submitted this video in a freshman logic class, it wouldn’t receive a passing grade.”

Cruz posted a long thread explaining everything that was known at the time.

“I fear @tedcruz missed the scientific animation in the video that shows how it is virtually impossible for this virus jump from the lab,” Kessler responded at the time. “Or the many interviews with actual scientists. We deal in facts, and viewers can judge for themselves.”

On Sunday, Cruz responded to the tweet with a screenshot of The Wall Street Journal report with the title – “Lab Leak Most Likely Origin of Covid-19 Pandemic, U.S. Agency Now Says.”

Special Advisor for Communications for Cruz, Steve Guest, also blasted Kessler online over the new report, calling it “Kessler’s BIGGEST MISS ever.”

Recently, the World Health Organisation (WHO) stated they would do everything possible “until we get the answer” of the origins of the virus.

In 2021, a WHO team traveled to Wuhan, China, to visit the Huanan market, where the first cluster of cases was reported. However, the investigation faced criticism for lacking transparency and access.
