(USA Features) Conservative talk host an author Dan Bongino lashed out at the media on Friday during a segment on Fox News’s “The Five” program for downplaying as a “conspiracy theory” early reports that COVID-19 may have escaped from a high-level bio-research laboratory in Wuhan, China.
“I don’t want to hear another peep from a liberal or a talking head media buffoon ever again about a conspiracy theory, okay? They never produce evidence about any of this stuff,” he began as he rattled off a litany of stories the media dismissed as fabrications that turned out to be true.

“What’s even more infuriating about this is anyone with common sense who is outside the liberal media ecosystem would’ve seen from the start that this was probably a lab leak,” Bongino noted further. “This has got to be one of the most infuriating stories in modern history and it’s all the media’s fault.”
The former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent went on to accuse the U.S. media of carrying water for Beijing.
“One more quick thing on this, what was incredible is when the Chinese government put out propaganda — ‘Don’t you dare say that this was a lab leak. Somebody ate bat soup,” he said.
“And then someone commented about people eating bat soup and everyone was called a racist for even commenting on bat soup for a story that was obviously Chinese propaganda. This is an infuriating mess, the media should wrap up shop and go home,” he added.
