Fox News’s Greg Gutfeld stated that, while he believes COVID-19 likely came from a lab, no one will “hang” for the death and destruction it has brought on Americans because the U.S. may have been “complicit” in its creation.
On Thursday, “The Five” gathered to discuss the damage COVID lockdowns caused to children and the elderly.
“It’s important to remember as this gets pushed out of the news cycle and Americans try to move on, who did this to these kids, why their futures were stolen, why people in nursing homes had to die alone. It’s because of the Chinese Communist Party,” stated panelist Katie Pavlich. “It’s because of the CDC, and the education and mental health crisis is a result of the teachers’ unions who used this opportunity to extort American taxpayers to get tons of funding.”
It’s money, Pavlich continued, “that they’re not spending and not using it to harden the schools to keep kids and teachers safe and they are the ones who did this.”
“The CDC worked with teachers unions to come up with policies to continue to keep kids masked, to continue to keep schools closed,” she said, adding that we knew in May of 2020 that the virus primarily affected elderly people, “but the federal government and Anthony Fauci got a taste of power and continued to do it to kids for two years.”
“So they are completely responsible and they should be reminded that they are the ones who did this to the country,” she stated.
Gutfeld responded by saying the lack of accountability for the death and long-term damage caused by COVID measures “boggles the mind.”
“Just to follow up on the idea of responsibility, it still boggles the mind that we’ve come to the conclusion that, I think, this was a man-made virus, and no one’s going to hang for that,” he said. “I keep going back to that.”
“If this were a war that killed a million Americans, what would we be doing?” he asked. “And I’m saying that as like, the United States might have been complicit in this. This gain of function stuff didn’t just pop up by itself.”
Naturally, so-called “fact-checkers” tripped over themselves to jump on Gutfeld’s claims.
In a post regarding the clip, left-leaning Mediaite concluded its article with a statement from the National Institute of Health and a May 2022 quote from FactCheck.org which said, “It is not known how SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, originated. But many scientists suspect the virus ‘spilled over’ into humans from an animal. There is no evidence the virus was created in a lab, let alone as part of any U.S.-funded research.”

While Mediaite didn’t identify the “many scientists,” we can only assume the organization was referring to a February New York Times story about researchers who “released a pair of extensive studies that point to a market in Wuhan, China, as the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.”
But, as BizPac Review noted at the time, the “extensive studies” were never peer-reviewed, and they followed by five days a study that actually was peer-reviewed that showed “some of the genetic material found in COVID-19 perfectly matches the genetic material in a nucleotide sequence patented by Moderna six years ago.”
Though the researchers concluded that such a match could occur randomly, they stressed that “other possibilities must be considered.”
While the former, non-peer-reviewed studies received widespread media attention, the latter was met by the mainstream media with a choir of crickets.
