Clay: Fauci Emails Again Show Media Often Acts As ‘PR Agents For The Powerful’

Videos by OutKick

More than 3,000 emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s inbox hit the Internet on Tuesday night, and man oh man, what was revealed wasn’t pretty, as OutKick founder Clay Travis discussed.

“Based on the Dr. Fauci emails it’s possible that not only was COVID manmade and escaped from a Chinese lab, but that the US government was helping to pay for the research that created the virus,” Clay tweeted. “This is potentially one of the biggest stories in US history.”

Of course, the mainstream media won’t cover it that way, Clay added. After all, long gone are the days of reporters sticking to the facts, no matter how hard those truths may be. Nowadays, it often seems, members of the media are more likely to behave as political activitists.

“This is exactly what a free and independent press should exist for — to investigate major stories like these and inform the public of the truth,” Clay wrote. “Instead our press mostly exists now as PR agents for the powerful.”

OutKick’s Bobby Burack earlier wrote a detailed post about the Fauci emails that you can check out here.

“If the lab-leak theory is proven correct — which would be difficult to do without China’s cooperation — the probability is high that China knew, covered it up, refused to allow its doctors to notify the rest of the world, and undercounted deaths to save face,” Burack wrote. “Meaning, China would be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people across the world.”

With that in mind, the Fauci emails shouldn’t be brushed off or ignored. They should be investigated. But will today’s mainstream media think the same? It sure doesn’t look that way.

  1. 90% of today’s media are the propaganda tools for progressive/Democratic party interests. The truth is irrelevant to them if it contradicts their world view narrative. So they either make things up, or ignore stories they want kept silent. They believe Americans are dumb enough not to notice….but viewers are catching on to their sleight of hand. Not surprisingly though, the loyal viewers & readers of CNN/MSNBC/NY Times/WaPo etc. ARE dumb enough to believe the lies.

  2. The media’s job today is to push the elite narrative. They do not report news, they set the tone as necessary and as ordered by the government/business oligarchy. This includes Fox News, BTW, except for their commentators. Their “news” division is little better than CNN’s when it comes to straight reporting of facts.

  3. China pressures the WHO to delay publicizing the outbreak in China and of course the WHO goes along. Fauci meeting with others and deeming the meetings to be, “top secret”. All for a virus that was transmitted “naturally” between animals and humans. That doesn’t seem suspicious. The media now covers Fauci like all of their other all-stars with a big gloss over.

    Does anyone know if that bridge in Brooklyn is still for sale?
