[See NewsBusters for more.] Amidst the backdrop of the U.S. government looking into whether the coronavirus originated in a Wuhan lab and China revisingits official death count, MSNBC's Jeremy Bash joined Andrea Mitchell on her Friday show to urge the administration to stop scapegoating and denigrating China.

Bash's advice on the China conundrum was contradictory for on one hand he declared, "we definitively have to be tough on them on the lack of transparency," but on the other, "we do have to work collaboratively with China and other countries to solve this problem. Scapegoating this as the Chinese Virus or denigrating or engaging in xenophobic rhetoric about China or Chinese individuals is counterproductive."
