CNN Used Lies and Misinformation to Muddle the Water on the Origin of SARS-CoV-2

Yan, Li-Meng; Kang, Shu; Guan, Jie; Hu, Shanchang

Very recently, CNN attacked two scientific reports published by us (the Yan Reportthe 2nd Yan Report). The first attack was an article published on CNN politics, which was followed two days later by a four-minute program on TV with the same contents. CNN’s goal is clear – to ruin Dr. Yan’s reputation and, more importantly, discredit the lab origin theory of SARS-CoV-2. As authors of the Yan reports, we found the attack by CNN entirely baseless and full of lies. To expose the disinformation campaign that is being pushed by CNN to deny the lab origin of SARS-CoV-2, we list their lies and mistakes and offer our response correspondingly. We deem this as necessary because, on this important question, the public deserves to know who is lying and intentionally misleading and who is honest and trustworthy.
