NYT employees banned from investigating the origin of COVID-19

A senior editor of the New York Times newspaper told employees not to investigate the origin of COVID-19, the British edition of the Spectator reports, citing newspaper employees.

“At the beginning of 2020, I suggested to the senior editor of the newspaper to investigate the origin of COVID-19. I was told that it is dangerous to write about the origin of the coronavirus. Writing any material that suggested that COVID-19 was created artificially or occurred as a result of an accidental leak from the laboratory met with resistance,” the publication quotes the words of one of the newspaper’s employees.

According to journalists, the theory about the laboratory origin of the coronavirus was considered a conspiracy. One of the sources said that the discussion of this theory has also become forbidden because former US President Donald Trump supported it.

Spectator suggests that the reason for the ban on the investigation could be the fact that before the coronavirus pandemic, the New York Times published articles that promoted the line of the Chinese government, for which it received millions of dollars from Chinese publications controlled by the government. Only in 2020, the newspaper removed these articles from its website.

A representative of the New York Times called the accusations against the publication ridiculous.
