The breakdown of the $1.6 million is as follows: $700,000 to TIME, $272,000 to the Los Angeles Times, $291,000 to Foreign Policy magazine, and $371,577 to the Financial Times.

This isn’t the first time American news publications accepted money from organizations backed by the Communist China Party.

The financial relationship between major U.S news publications and Chinese-state backed groups comes as many mainstream reporters admit the theory that the coronavirus originated from a Wuhan lab is credible, after months of labeling it as a “conspiracy theory.”
