The Wuhan coronavirus has already been weaponized by the Democrats.
They’re using the global pandemic to attack Donald Trump, Republicans, and right-leaning media outlets.
And one Fox News host could be suing one group for the coronavirus lie they told.
The Democrats didn’t waste any time using the Wuhan coronavirus to attack Trump.
The country is in the midst of an unprecedented public health crisis, and the left is trying to score political points.
And the left’s favorite whipping boy is Fox News.
They can’t stand that there’s a conservative voice in television news amid a sea of blue.
One of the left’s top attack dogs is Media Matters for America, a smear machine that does nothing but organize boycotts against advertisers on conservative outlets.
Media Matters promoted the lie that Fox News never took the threat of the coronavirus seriously. Andrew Lawrence, an employee of the leftist attack group, tweeted, “Greg Gutfeld says Fox’s ‘The Five’ sounded the alarm on coronavirus back in January……BUT he’s lying.”
Unfortunately for Lawrence and Media Matters, Gutfeld responded by pinning a tweet of himself discussing the coronavirus back in January:
this was January 28th. what were media hacks who are acting like they’re Nostradamus now, saying back then? Zilch. https://t.co/AJpYjsFziV

Despite the bulletproof evidence, Media Matters refused to back down and retract their claim.
That’s when Gutfeld suggested in a tweet that he was looking into suing the left-wing organization.
What’s even more absurd about Media Matters’s claim is that they also accused Fox News of fear-mongering over the coronavirus.
According to Media Matters, Fox News didn’t take the coronavirus seriously and yet took it too seriously.
This is a deranged perspective, and is indicative of the left today.
Their ideas are in conflict with one another.
Big media will defend arguments they were shooting down the day before, and then pretend like the American people didn’t see the flip-flop.
This is precisely why trust in the media is so low.
Despite endless attacks against Trump, polls show the American people trust Trump more regarding the coronavirus than they do the media.
If Gutfeld pursues a lawsuit against Media Matters, it would serve them right. Media Matters won’t even admit they’re wrong when there’s documented evidence to the contrary.
They’ve been smearing conservatives with impunity for far too long. It’s time they learn some accountability for their lies.
