NYT Reporter: "Lab Leak Theory Is Racist"
America's old newspaper of record has become a tasteless joke.
By JOHN LEAKE
Glenn Greenwald just tweeted a reminder that on May 26, 2021, the New York Times reporter, Apoorva Mandavilli, asserted that the SARS-CoV-2 lab leak theory is “racist.”
When did it become fashionable to label such a dizzying array of things, people, opinions, and facts as “racist”?
Can those who see racism behind every tree name a single public figure of note who has, in the last thirty years, advocated discriminatory policies against people because of their dark skin?
I write public figure because the private thoughts of private citizens are not a matter of public interest and policy. If they were, we would need an army of inquisitors to subject everyone to trials and interrogations.
Reporters such as Ms. Mandavilli at the New York Times would be far more effective at apprehending reality if they made an effort to investigate it instead of arbitrarily labeling it.
