CNN Claims Virus Origin Question 'A Distracting Mechanism'

[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN Newsroom host Brianna Keilar and national security correspondent Kaylie Atwood theorized on Thursday that increased focus on the possibility that the current pandemic began as a lab accident in Wuhan and not at a wet market is just another attempt by the White House and its allies to distract from the administration's failures.

Keilar reported on the news that the lab accident explanation is being looked into, but that CNN's sources say any definitive conclusion would be premature and that Beijing continues to deny them. Introducing Atwood, Keilar thought the timing of the report was too convenient, "of course, this is coming as the administration is also fused on deflecting blame and focusing instead on the Chinese."
