Will we ever know where Covid came from?

Good episode, but Mr. Frank's failure to fully embrace his part in the suppression of the Lab Leak hypothesis was telling about the strength of his commitment to intellectual honesty. Shaving a small bit from the coin may not be as bad as what MSNBC et al. did, but greater acceptance of his role in allowing TDS to color his analysis would have been better. Also, I do not recall then Secretary Pompeo ever alleging the Chinese gov. deliberately manufactured Covid to unleash on the world.

The view from the right

Clear, unapologetic and strong right-wing slant is clear from Freddy and most contributors to Americano episodes - significantly more so than the Spectator’s UK political analysis, which is still broadly centre-right, but much more balanced than Americano. Worth listening to if you take this bias in to account.

Centrist in Seattle ,

Seattle area Anglophile

It’s January 6th, 2022 and I’m so irritated with the media’s biased, non-stop coverage of January 6th. I watched BLM riots wreck havoc on my city with seemingly full approval from those around me and in the media. The lack of fairness in coverage of January 6th versus the riots of the summer of 2020 has deepened my cynicism and mistrust of the media. It was a relief to hear my own sentiments echoed in the voice of John Daniel Davidson.
