CNN is calling this one an exclusive, because apparently they got their hands on some leaked documents that show that China underreported its COVID-19 numbers among other acts that CNN calls “China’s mishandling of the early stages” of the coronavirus pandemic.
CNN exclusive: Vast trove of leaked documents shows China underreported Covid-19 numbers, took weeks to diagnose new cases and didn’t disclose a December flu spike in Hubei https://t.co/VwQzKLsPNt

Misleading public data? From China? About what the guy who wrote the book on the subject, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, called the “European virus” at the Democratic National Convention?

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

I think we all knew this.

I mean this is cute, but experts said this in May and CNN said they had tinfoil hats

This claim used to be controversial and even condemned.

This claim got people banned from Twitter

Didn’t need a leak to know this. Thanks for catching up, CNN.

I'm just here to see all the links to CNN stories downplaying it.

Hey @cnn, this you? Fucking spectacular. China not your MVP anymore? China going from “strength to strength…”. PR agency for wherever narrative serves the purpose for the day. What a Joke. pic.twitter.com/PnHCKlzopQ

We knew since the beginning.
Trump was right.

You know what would be newsworthy? When you obtained these documents, and how long you have been sitting on them.

Pretty sure this is far from an “exclusive”

I'll file this under "Obvious things that would never have seen the light of day on CNN before November 3rd".

I'd like my apology now for being ridiculed for saying that months ago.

It took you 10 months to report on this? Wow.

How on earth does this come as a surprise? Did anyone think that Numbers in China, the Patient Zero of the pandemic, dropped to zero out of nowhere?

Exclusive? You just now figured this out? Not exactly Sherlock Holmes in your "news" department.

I guess it's all right to report now that you're no longer "resisting", amirite?

A lot of “conspiracy theorists” are owed an apology.
