Will They Ban This Before You See It?

A raccoon dog rumor can run around the world before the truth is done tying its shoes.

We are urging you to go download — not just listen, but download — this latest episode of Gracearchy with Jim Babka because other shows have been banned for less. Just in case this episode is removed, you should have it.

What are we talking about that could cause this?

The Atlantic chose to publish a hypothesis that was the subject of a World Health Organization conference call. It wasn’t even a pre-print yet, let alone a peer-reviewed study.

The claim: A raccoon dog transmitted the SarsCov-2 virus to humans at the Huanan Wet Market in Wuhan.

Journalism or Sensationalism?

But The Atlantic didn’t merely report this hypothesis, they evangelized it, titling the article, “The Strongest Evidence Yet That an Animal Started the Pandemic.”

The author of that report, Katherine Wu, went on the PBS News Hour, declaring that they’d found the equivalent of fingerprints at the crime scene. Wu also expressed her “hope that some people will be swayed” away from the Lab Leak explanation.

The regime media picked this up and ran with it. Science chose to quote only insider scientists who agreed with the raccoon dog. The BBC labeled it “‘the best evidence’ of how the pandemic started.”

Wu’s presentation of this story is an extreme overstatement. Here’s what you need to know…

  • The “scientific consensus” does not favor the Wet Market story. In this episode, I introduce you to the #SpilloverGang – the tiny, connected group behind the Wet Market story.
  • The Spillover Gang has had other culprits for this crime – bats, pangolins, and now the raccoon dog. But this is like the accused murderer who is too late to commit the crime. I’ll show you how this conspiracy theory cannot get past Go.

Journalism or Sensationalism?

It’s commonly been considered heresy to publicly question The Science. Free expression has been censored for partisan and geopolitical narratives, so we cannot trust that we won’t be banned. It’s happened to others. That’s why we’re encouraging you to download the show.

However, we will continue to practice Grace.

That’s why, instead of hiding my biases, I disclose my beliefs up-front. And during the program, I Steelman (instead of strawman) by highlighting the Spillover Gang’s best spokesperson, and we link to his work.

Please don’t merely listen. Please download and even give a thumbs up to this episode, “COVID and the Spillover Gang.”
