Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “WATCH: Bari Weiss Confronts Brian Stelter Over CNN’s Covid Lab Leak Theory Coverage in Tense Debate”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former New York Times writer Bari Weiss confronted CNN’s Brian Stelter over the network’s part in the media’s “disinformation by omission” for multiple subjects.

Weiss joined Stelter on Reliable Sources to talk about her recent comments on the public’s frustration with the current state of the media. She started things off by explaining how it’s a sign that “the world has gone mad” when the media is not “allowed” to go in depth on hot button issues such as the Covid lab leak theory or Hunter Biden’s laptop.

When you have the chief reporter on the beat of Covid for The New York Times talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad. When you’re not able to say out loud and in public that there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we’re not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting, and it is bad, and that silence is not violence but violence is violence, the world has gone mad. When we’re not able to say that Hunter Biden’s laptop is a story worth pursuing, the world has gone mad.

Stelter picked up on Weiss’ argument that the media is not “allowed” to pursue these topics, so he asked her “Who are the people stopping the conversation?”

“People that work at networks like, frankly, like the one I’m speaking on right now,” she answered, “who try and claim that it was racist to investigate the lab leak theory.”
