WASHINGTON, D.C., January 6, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute (PRI) and LifeSiteNews columnist, was “vindicated” for his view expressed last February that the novel coronavirus originated from a virology lab in Wuhan, China. For almost a year, Mosher’s view had been characterized as a “conspiracy theory” by many observers.
Classifying this development as one of the “many so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ [that] have turned out to be completely true” in the last four years, Carlson observed that in 2020, one would be called a “science denier” unless they “agreed vehemently, on faith, that the coronavirus came from a bat, or something called a pangolin, that was sold in a wet market in Wuhan.”
Not knowing in February if this assertion was true or not, Carlson interviewed Mosher, who stated at the time, “I think [the virus] escaped from the lab.” He continued to explain, “Wuhan is the only level 4 laboratory in all of China. So, that’s where you would put a dangerous pathogen. Whether you were genetically engineering it to be a weapon or not, that’s where you would be experimenting on it. So, it makes sense that the epicenter of the epidemic, the lab there, would be the source of that virus.”
Citing a recently published “remarkable piece” by Nicholson Baker in New York Magazine, where neither the author nor publication can rightly be considered conservative, Carlson states “it looks like [Mosher] was probably right.” Following even “a year’s-worth of research, talking to epidemiologists, virologists all over the world, Baker concludes that the most likely explanation for the emergence of this virus is that it escaped from that lab in Wuhan. It turns out that scientists around the world agree with him, they just didn’t want to say so. “
Carlson added that the nation’s deputy national security adviser Matt Pottinger also agrees with Mosher on this point. “In a recent Zoom call with British officials he said this: ‘There is a growing body of evidence that the lab is the most credible source of the virus.’”
Referring to Mosher as “one of the early brave people” to withstand a level of ridicule for making this point 11 months ago, Carlson said the PRI president was entitled to “somewhat of a victory lap” on his show since his “position seems like a growing consensus.”
In response, on Monday’s live broadcast, Mr. Mosher downplayed any novelty to his insight, stating, “I think the evidence is obvious to anybody who looks at it. Tucker, we have not, in the past year, found a natural analog to the China virus. That is, we have not found a coronavirus … that looks at all like the China virus. It looks like a lab creation.”
He went on to discuss the testimony of Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan who fled to the U.S. and claims that COVID-19 was manufactured in a China lab. With three colleagues, Yan issued a research paper in September which casted doubt on the commonly held position that COVID-19 originated naturally. The paper stated that “the natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support.”
These authors observed that any deviation from the natural origin theory is strongly censured. After the publication of her paper, which showed that the virus “should be a laboratory product created by using bat coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone,” Yan’s Twitter account was suspended.
Carlson pointed out earlier in the show that the Wuhan lab had “received $3.7 million from the Obama administration.”
Concerns over the health and safety of the human test subjects in Pfizer's European COVID vaccine study have caused two eminent doctors to launch a petition calling for an immediate halt to those studies.
On December 1, 2020, Dr. Michael Yeadon, an ex chief of research at Pfizer and Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a lung specialist and former department head of public health lodged an appeal to the EMA, the European Medicine Agency responsible for approving drugs across the EU, asking them to suspend the ongoing Pfizer/BioNtech COVID vaccine study on BNT162b (EudraCT number 2020-002641-42).
LifeSite is joining Drs. Yeadon and Wodarg in their call for an immediate suspension of this study and we are encouraging people to co-sign their petition to the EMA which is to be found in the petition section on this page.
Please SIGN and SHARE this important petition, and then please contact the EMA at the address listed below, in the 'For More Information' section.
In their application to the EMA, Drs. Yeadon and Wodarg give the following reasons why the Pfizer study could pose dangers to the health and safety of the study participants:
- First, the doctors say that the study design must be improved as the highly inaccurate PCR test is currently being used to detect the presence of COVID in the study participants. This means that the efficacy of the vaccine is in doubt. The doctors recommend changing from the PCR test to Sanger sequencing.
- Second, and more important, the doctors advocate animal testing of the vaccine to exclude the possibility of the risks to the life and health of human participants from known side-effects of other similar studies on corona viruses.
These side-effects can include: an exaggerated immune response when the subject comes into contact with the "real world" virus; possible infertility of an "indefinite duration" for women; severe allergic responses to polyethylene glycol which is contained in the mRNA vaccine being tested by Pfizer; and, other latent, serious side effects which, because of the short duration of the study, may only become known well after the conclusion of the study.
Because of these unacceptable risks to the life and health of the Pfizer/BioNtech COVID vaccine study participants, we are joining with Drs. Yeadon and Wodarg as co-signers of their petition to the European Medicine Agency, asking for an immediate halt to these studies.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING, today!
And, after you have signed this petition, please send the sample email in the section below to the official European Medicine Agency email: [email protected]

Subject: Please act on the petition of Dr. Wodarg and Dr. Yeadon and stay the Phase III clinical trial(s) of BNT162b
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am hereby co-signing the petition of Dr. Wodarg and Dr. Yeadon to support their urgent request to stay the Phase III clinical trial(s) of BNT162b (EudraCT Number 2020-002641-42) and other clinical trials. The full text of the petition of Dr. Wodarg and Dr. Yeadon can be found here: https://2020news.de/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Wodarg_Yeadon_EMA_Petition_Pfizer_Trial_FINAL_01DEC2020_EN_unsigned_with_Exhibits.pdf
I hereby respectfully request that EMA act on the petition of Dr. Wodarg and Dr. Yeadon immediately.
Regards, [Your name]

In conclusion, Mosher asked, “Why didn’t we hear about this [evidence] earlier? Because the people who are funding the lab” belong to the same party who have been insisting “that this was all a conspiracy theory, that this was not a lab creation at all, that it came from nature, that it had a so-called ‘zoonotic’ origin. It didn’t. They were lying. They were part of the scam that kept this information from the American public for the last year.”
