Emails Show That Politics Outweighed Science in Dismissing ‘Lab Leak’ Theory
On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Jamarl Thomas and Austin Pelli talk about the US making a mockery of so-called ‘rules-based orders,’ a memoriam of Biden’s presidency as just a third of Americans like the job he’s doing, and emails that show Fauci dismissing lab leak theories based on politics.
K.J. Noh - International Journalist | Myanmar’s Military Rulers Throwing Anything That Sticks to Ousted Democracy Icon
Daniel Lazare - Independent Journalist | Is There Any Justification for Biden Failing This Big?
Dr. Gene Olinger - Virologist | Emails Show That Politics Outweighed Science in Dismissing ‘Lab Leak’ Theory
In the first hour, K.J. Noh joined the show to talk about ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi being held on a variety of bogus charges that continue to reign in from Myanmar’s military rule. We also talked about Noh’s recent article describing the U.S. making a mockery of so-called ‘rules-based orders’ that they violate without regard.
In the second hour, Fault Lines was joined by Daniel Lazare for a discussion on Biden’s abysmal approval rating as he admits that it’s unlikely he’ll get anything of significance passed this year, if Biden truly had good intentions going into this administration, and talk about rumors of a Biden-Cheney 2024 ticket.
In the third hour, Dr. Gene Olinger joined the conversation to talk about emails that reveal, in Dr. Olinger’s estimation, that politics outweighed science in Fauci dismissing the ‘lab leak’ theory, even as credible scientists believed that it was overall the more likely source of the virus.
