Leftist media “sided with the Chinese Government” in trying to shut down inquiry into the origin of COVID-19, according to Sky News host Sharri Markson.
Ms Markson said China had admitted its increasing attack on Australia was largely the result of Australia’s “world-leading” call for an inquiry into the origins of COVID-19.
“But months after Australia first called for this inquiry, we are no closer to an answer about how this virus started,” she said.
She said there appeared little interest from the media to investigate the topic, with most of the media almost entirely rejecting the notion the virus may have leaked from a Wuhan Laboratory.
Ms Markson said in February 2020, the Lancet published a letter signed by 27 leading scientists saying the virus originated from animals and accused those who questioned whether it instead originated from a laboratory of spreading misinformation.
