The left-wing media is having a meltdown over an article recently published by ZeroHedge that speculates about novel coronavirus being a potential bioweapon that originated in a laboratory.
Entitled, “Is This The Man Behind The Global Coronavirus Pandemic?” the article explains how a November 18, 2019, “help wanted” ad put out by the Wuhan Institute of Virology sought two post-doctoral fellows to use “bats to research the molecular mechanism that allows Ebola and SARS-associated coronavirus to lie dormant for a long time without causing diseases.”
The job description, which is still up on the school’s website at the time of this writing, explains that the position will involve working in the laboratory of Dr. Peng Zhou, Ph.D., a researcher and head of the Bat Virus Infection and Immunization Group.
Dr. Zhou started working with bats and communicable viruses back in 2009, having published dozens of articles about his findings in multiple scientific journals. His lab also issued a press release about how bats can carry illnesses without getting sick themselves while transferring them to people.
The Zero Hedge exposé on Dr. Zhou is thorough in detailing Dr. Zhou’s expertise on this subject, which directly coincides with the unexpected release of a novel coronavirus from what experts claim were either bats or snakes, or both. It’s also interesting that Dr. Zhou has been doing research at China’s only level-four biohazard lab.
As it turns out, Dr. Zhou has not only been researching how bats act as carriers for lethal illnesses without getting sick themselves but also genetically engineering mechanisms to enhance, you might say, their carrier abilities. He also appears to have created a highly resistant mutant “superbug” in the process.
“As part of his studies, Peng also researched mutant Coronavirus strains that overcame the natural immunity of some bats; these are ‘superbug’ Coronavirus strains, which are not resistant to any natural immune pathway, and now appear to be out in the wild,” Zero Hedge explains.
“As of mid-November, his lab was actively hiring inexperienced post-docs to help conduct his research into super-Coronaviruses and bat infections.”
Twitter bans Zero Hedge for investigative reporting on coronavirus
Zero Hedge concluded its article on Dr. Zhou by publishing his email address and phone number for readers to reach him with inquiries about the subject, prompting Twitter to ban Zero Hedge from its service for supposedly violating its terms of service.
Since when is it a digital crime to publish the identity and contact information of a scientific paper author, you might be asking? Since novel coronavirus came along and the mainstream media decided that truth is “offensive.”
BuzzFeed News was among the first to publish its own article, which we won’t link to, chiding Zero Hedge for allegedly “doxing” Dr. Zhou, even though it merely published ways for readers to reach him that are publicly available.
Describing Zero Hedge as “a pro-Trump blog” – a snide descriptor aimed at denigrating the integrity of Zero Hedge in the minds of BuzzFeed News readers – BuzzFeed News falsely accused the independent media outlet of falsely accusing Dr. Zhou of creating a bioweapon. But here’s the thing: It appears that Dr. Zhou was, in fact, suspiciously involved with all of the right research pertaining to the coronavirus outbreak.
If we still had an honest media in this country that engaged in actual journalism, all the major media outlets would be asking questions about Dr. Zhou and his work at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. But instead, we have a complicit faux media that conducts no investigative research whatsoever, while lambasting others like Zero Hedge that do.

Well, you can call the Chinese Embassy and ask them why. For some strange reason they called me but didn’t leave a message. Chinese Embassy 202-337-1956.
Well, you can call the Chinese Embassy and ask them why. For some strange reason they called me but didn’t leave a message. It must be to appoint me as interim president. That is really flattering. Chinese Embassy 202-337-1956.
ZH knew Jack the Ripper would be the first to swat it down and the rest would follow suit.
The Tyler’s have concocted a plan thats nothing short of genius or a big fat nothing burger.
ZH had to know Jack the Ripper would swat it down and the rest would follow suit.
So now Dr Zhou sues the shit out of ZH because by not doing so would appear to be an admission of guilt.
Does ZH really need publicity that badly.?
So who penned that libelous pos Snyder? Jones? Kooky Karl?
No wait ….it couldnt have been the kookster.. Not enough expletives..
I’m sure even his nom de plume cusses like a sailor.

Wouldn’t sweat it.
I didn’t read the ZH article, and won’t, but did the journalist contact Dr.Zhou? Did the university respond? It seems suspicious that an investigative reporter would be incapable of finding this out by either posing as an applicant, or having a qualified candidate pose as an applicant, if the university or Dr. Zhou would not reply.
Anyone whom reads ZeroHedges most astute and oftentimes quite offensive comment rolls knows it’s not a safe haven for any single political ideology, especially Trump supporters. The intelligence and informational levels of those always active comment rolls is quite often, off the charts. If I need a detailed reference to something and seek to dig deeper, ZH is a go to resource for popular news.
If people would quit caring about Fake News Buzzfeed, they’d go away already. I never even heard of them outside of the constant references to them acting as partners to censorship and boldly mis stated accusations and presumptions about other groups. Who runs that site anyways, are they god or something? Burn what’s left. Certainly though, mentioning those whom should not be mentioned does not hurt them but rather it helps them maintain status and popular recognition. Even bad publicity is good publicity and remember, there is no greater objection than absence.
I suspect the most interesting aspect of this story one might speculate upon, is the catastrophic failure which was likely facilitated by over reliance on automation and tech systems. Those new research fellows likely had a good social score, passed facial recognition, passed insta records checks, were approved by government and therefore approvable by the government ran educational and employment entities, and that’s all she wrote, game over. Central planning always has a downside. When people relinquish critical thought to others, especially through automated systems, the result is inevitably a reduction in logical qualification and interpretation standards.
When you use the term ‘doxxed’, you may be unaware you’re actively engaged in newspeak. The only confidential source is that of a whistleblower reporting in purposeful secrecy to a journalist. Everyone else is a source. The term doxxing is irrelevant. By subscribing to the language and willingly using the term in regular conversation or regular writing, using the term as a valid word nonchalantly, you too have joined the new revolution. Think what you’re told. Write what you’re told. Speak what you’re told. Never dox and always believe.
Most news readers and perhaps even a great many news publishers are further down the newspeak rabbit hole than they may be willing to admit or possibly even be able to recognize. Abject objectivity I suppose.
If in doubt use the Kings English prior to somewhere around the 1990 period. Whence steeped in history, proclaiming a higher calling from heavens above, practice olde speak upon thine countenance to thine favored audiences. The power of specific language.
