    Allegations are fueling that Dr. Anthony Fauci lied to Congress over
    whether or not the U.S. government funded gain-of-function research in
    Wuhan leading up to the coronavirus pandemic, but much of the legacy
    media has yet to cover the recently-released bombshell documents that
    appear to contradict the top Biden official's testimony.

    Fauci adamantly denied during his testimony on Capitol Hill that the
    National Institutes of Health funded any gain-of-function research in
    Wuhan, but The Intercept published a story on Monday exposing several
    hundred pages of documents that revealed the U.S. government pumped $3.1 million into American health organization EcoHealth Alliance to back bat coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) and that
    almost $600,000 of that federal money was partially used by the WIV to
    find and alter bat coronaviruses that could jump to humans and infect

    However, the bombshell revelations have received zero coverage on CNN,
    MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC throughout Tuesday and Wednesday, according to
    Grabien transcripts.

    Fauci even appeared for interviews with CNN anchor Jim Sciutto and MSNBC
    host Joy Reid on Tuesday, both of whom avoided the subject.

    The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Politico, Axios and
    The Associated Press also appeared to skip the major development.


    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who's long been a vocal critic of Fauci, reacted
    to the report, tweeting that the NIAID director "lied again." Other
    lawmakers like Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., and Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wisc,
    are calling on Fauci to resign.

    Much of the legacy media similarly ignored the damning leaked phone call transcripts from July showing President Biden urging then-Afghan
    President Ashraf Ghani to push a "perception" of stability in
    Afghanistan "whether it is true or not" ahead of the chaotic military withdrawal and the takeover of the Taliban.

    Trump won.
