CNN anchor Brianna Keilar expressed no contrition over calling Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. an “a–” for grilling Dr. Anthony Fauci concerning the U.S. funneling cash to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the suspected web site of the coronavirus pandemic’s origination.

Paul has centered a lot questioning and criticism on whether or not or not U.S. taxpayers had been funding dangerous acquire of perform analysis on the Wuhan Institute of Virology, one thing the NIAID director vehemently denied. 

In May, Keilar went after Paul for his aggressive “WWE” strategy. 

“Nothing brings out Senator Paul’s propensity to act like an a– like a congressional appearance by Fauci,” Keilar mentioned.

She later added, “Like Elvis’ Kentucky Rain, Rand Paul’s COVID BS keeps pouring down, and it’s enough to fill the swimming pool in the Senate gym.”

However, Fauci has been dealing with renewed scrutiny after the National Institutes of Health despatched a letter to Oversight Committee rating member Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., admitting to a “limited experiment” performed with a view to take a look at if “spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model” – contradicting Fauci’s earlier claims.

Sen. Paul’s spouse Kelley Paul known as out the CNN anchor on Twitter in addition to CBS’ Gayle King over their previous protection of Fauci. 

CNN TORCHED FOR ‘EMBARRASSING’ STATEMENT ON JOE ROGAN COVERAGE: SOUNDS LIKE AN ‘ADVOCACY GROUP,’ NOT A NEWS NETWORK

“While Rand has been demanding transparency from Fauci for over a year, lowbrow hacks like @brikeilarcnn responded by calling Rand an a** on air. Giggling @GayleKing fangirled Fauci and ridiculed Rand, ignoring the point of his questions. Have any comments now, Gayle and Brianna?” Paul requested on Friday. 

That caught the eye of the CNN anchor, who informed the senator’s spouse, “I stand by my characterization of Sen. Paul.”

Keilar argued the letter didn’t vindicate the GOP lawmaker, writing, “The theory Paul constructs, that Fauci’s covering up how covid is a man made virus unleashed on the world by the Obama administration because of a NIH research grant awarded in 2014, is not supported by this letter. It’s actually disproven by the information in the letter.” She did, although, acknowledge the “alarming new info” concerning the gain-of-function analysis performed by EcoHealth Alliance, which funded it by NIH grants, as “potentially dangerous.”

“Now to the a– thing. Seeing as Paul is verifiably full of it I do think it’s an apt metaphor. He claimed NYC had ‘community immunity’ from covid when the immunity level was estimated at a meager 22%. He told Americans at the height of the pandemic to throw away their masks,” Keilar tweeted. “Sen. Paul also jeopardized the health of others, visiting the senate gym while awaiting a covid test result that would later turn out positive. And at the height of the pandemic he walked around the senate floor without wearing a mask.”

“Dr. Fauci and American public health officials should answer questions about oversight of this US-funded research. No public official is immune from scrutiny. But Sen. Paul, a bloviator of misinformation, is certainly not the man for that job,” Keilar later added. 

Kelley Paul fired again, “Rand has been the ONLY person asking these questions. Your network certainly wasn’t. Yet when he did, you resorted to silly name-calling of Rand instead of reporting on the content of his questions or Fauci’s obfuscations. Bloviator of misinformation? Look in the mirror!”

Other critics torched the “New Day” co-host for missing professionalism and journalistic ethics. 

“It’s easy to point out these people operate without an ounce of introspection, or shame. But shamelessness, while embarrassing, is secondary, to the reality here: CNN spreads misinformation under the guise of stopping misinformation. When called out, they double down,” Fourth Watch media critic Steve Krakauer reacted. 

“The contorting side juvenile behavior by Brianna is a requirement to live in Zuckerville. How does that help anyone other than driving clicks and hate?” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck requested, alluding to CNN president Jeff Zucker.

New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz tweeted Keilar “admits the NIH covered up important information but can’t make the leap that they did so here too because then she’d have to admit she was obnoxiously wrong about Rand Paul.”

“Rand Paul didn’t wear a mask and therefore he cannot question Anthony Fauci about his role and relationship with EcoHealth Alliance. This is not a journalist,” The Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller wrote. 

“I will believe CNN is serious about this when the next time Fauci comes on air, they ask him about this. Hint: They’ve not done that over the last 20 months of the pandemic. Not once,” National Review contributor Pradheep J. Shanker tweeted.

Keilar’s unapologetic response to her commentary seems to be a part of CNN’s playbook.

Last week, the liberal community issued a fiery assertion in opposition to podcast large Joe Rogan after he accused the community of “lying” about his use of ivermectin amid his restoration from COVID after a number of anchors and pundits referred to it as “horse dewormer” and a “livestock drug,” though it was the human type of the therapy that was prescribed to him by a health care provider.

“The heart of this debate has been purposely confused and ultimately lost,” CNN told Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple on Thursday. “It’s never been about livestock versus human dosage of Ivermectin. The issue is that a powerful voice in the media, who by example and through his platform, sowed doubt in the proven and approved science of vaccines while promoting the use of an unproven treatment for covid-19 — a drug developed to ward off parasites in farm animals.” 

“The only thing CNN did wrong here was bruise the ego of a popular podcaster who pushed dangerous conspiracy theories and risked the lives of millions of people in doing so,” the community added. 

Notably, CNN’s assertion didn’t handle the beautiful admission made by its chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who informed Rogan his colleagues shouldn’t have characterised ivermectin the way in which they did.
