Corrupt corporate media outlets are ignoring the smoking gun emails between Dr. Anthony Fauci and other health officials to protect the White House COVID-19 adviser.
Buzzfeed News and the Washington Post both did the legwork for these stories by requesting Fauci’s emails through the Freedom of Information Act, but neither of their articles detailing the batch of emails finds fault with him. Instead, the authors focus on how tough Fauci’s job was over the last year as he faced criticism and pressure from all sides of the political aisle.
“Anthony Fauci’s Emails Reveal The Pressure That Fell On One Man,” the fawning Buzzfeed headline read. The story praises Fauci for being “courteous, low-key, and empathetic.”
“He politely interacts with the office assistants who help him with his correspondence, and he sweats over the proper way to let people down,” the article states, noting how much popularity he garnered from around the world.
WaPo’s headline and article also gushed over The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director for being viewed “as a reassuring voice of reason.”
“Anthony Fauci’s pandemic emails: ‘All is well despite some crazy people in this world,’” the headline reads, noting Fauci’s willingness to lose sleep for his job.
The articles ignored the stack of emails showing Fauci’s hypocrisy on masks and NIH leaders downplaying U.S. funding of gain of function research at the Wuhan Virology Institute. Emails also show Fauci did not face political pressure or silencing from former President Donald Trump about COVID-19, but were also brushed over despite being a major narrative of the last year from major publications such as the New York Times.
While conservative outlets such as The Federalist highlighted Fauci’s willingness to ignore the science to assume more control and take matters into his own hands, other corporate media organizations picked up on the agenda-setting cues laid out by Buzzfeed and the Washington Post and used the opportunity to once again laud and praise Fauci as an expert not to be questioned.
“Thousands of emails from and to Dr. Fauci reveal the weight that came with his role as a rare source of frank honesty within the Trump administration’s Covid-19 task force,” CNN wrote.

Even Big Tech skimped over the emails showing Fauci’s shady collusion with Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg to portray the NIAID director in a positive light.
“The Washington Post and BuzzFeed News collectively published thousands of emails from White House medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci’s inbox, spanning from January to June 2020. The correspondence provides some insights into his day-to-day during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States,” Twitter’s often-editorialized moment description read.
Despite Fauci’s flip-flopping on issues such as masking, school reopenings, and even the likelihood of a vaccine, he has been rewarded with frequent media appearances and recently landed a book deal and documentary featuring himself. He also received favorable treatment on Wednesday when no members of the White House press corps questioned Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the emails during the press briefing.
The corrupt corporate media has a reputation for spinning a story to fit their agenda. Whether it was extending themselves to cover every ounce of the Russian collusion story despite shaky and later discredited evidence, accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of gang rape without any evidence, accepting only one side of the Covington Catholic schoolboy narrative, pumping up anonymous sources and fake news about the alleged Russian bounties story, boosting blatantly false reporting about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, or promoting prolonged lockdowns, the corporate media have shown their willingness to go above and beyond to lie to Americans to score political points for the left and power.
There is no lie so evil or brazen that corrupt media won’t run with it if it hurts Republicans or helps Democrats.
Russian collusion, Kavanaugh, Covington, Ukraine, Russian bounties, safest election ever, insurrection, COVID lockdowns.
For them, the bigger the lie the better.
