The New York Times has been leading the media charge against the supposedly “racist” term that Donald Trump has been using to refer to COVID19: “Chinese coronavirus.”

We get that covering — and kissing — the Chinese government’s butt is a full-time job, but is someone over at the Times falling asleep at the wheel?

We ask because they somehow haven’t memory-holed this little gem:

Notice anything about the caption?

“Wuhan coronavirus”? Really, New York Times? What were you thinking?

You said so yourselves, New York Times. So what gives?

It’s almost as if something changed. Something that scared the New York Times into parroting the Chinese government’s narratives.

It’s a real head-scratcher, that one.
