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.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
