Source: AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, file As Democrats and their media allies continue to “update” the “truth” on the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus as more and more evidence comes out linking a Chinese lab to the outbreak, the Washington Post is the latest outlet to revise its coverage history.
The “Democracy Dies in Darkness” gang over at the Jeff Bezos-owned newspaper quietly “corrected,” as Mediaite noted , the headline on a February 17, 2020 story about comments made by Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) during an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News.
As originally published, the Post’s headline declared “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus conspiracy theory that was already debunked” and continued to bear that title as recently as May 28, according to archived versions accessed via Wayback Machine. But now a correction notice now appears on the story along with a significantly different headline that reads “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus fringe theory that scientists have disputed.” What Tom Cotton spoke of was not, of course, debunked. It was just an inconvenient theory for the self-appointed gatekeepers who decide what is and isn’t tolerable for mainstream media narrative-building. And those powers did their darndest to shut down questions about the pandemic’s origins.
“Earlier versions of this story and its headline inaccurately characterized comments by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) regarding the origins of the coronavirus,” notes the Post in its correction. “The term ‘debunked’ and The Post’s use of ‘conspiracy theory’ have been removed because, then as now, there was no determination about the origins of the virus.” Well, there it is. “…then as now, there was no determination about the origins of the virus.” It’s a subtle admission that hack opinion is used interchangeably with factual news at the Washington Post.
Senator Cotton’s balanced comments were far from a full-throated endorsement of the theory that COVID may have originated in a lab and merely raised the possibility that the World Health Organization and Chinese Communist Party might not be the most trustworthy sources from which to draw definitive conclusions.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
