Sharri Markson: ABC ‘misled viewers’ on theory COVID-19 may have leaked from Wuhan lab
The Australian’s Sophie Elsworth says the ABC needs to “stop trying to hide very good reporting” that looks to unveil what happened in Wuhan at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
‘What Really Happened In Wuhan’ author Sharri Markson says the ABC has “misled its viewers” on the theory COVID-19 may have been leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Paul Barry, who hosts the ABC’s Media Watch program, has referred to the theory as a “conspiracy” multiple times.
“This is the television show that’s meant to be the arbiter of journalism and good quality journalism,” Ms Markson told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.
“And yet he misled his viewers and the Australian public by making them think that this was a conspiracy.
“When in fact, as you know, it was always a plausible source of the virus.
“Joe Biden’s own probe found that both origins were plausible, and yet the ABC still hasn’t corrected its information, Paul Barry still hasn’t told his viewers this is not a conspiracy.”
