To be fair, George, I also found this claim in the CCP 'Global Times': Editors' Pick of Mar 26, 2020, 06:31pm (EDT 116,649 views)
Chinese State Newspaper Amplifies Conspiracy Theory That First COVID-19 Patient Was U.S. Cyclist - by
Carlton Reid Senior Contributor in Transportation. I have been writing about transport for 30 years.

"The Chinese state-run newspaper Global Times has been accused of spreading an unfounded conspiracy theory that a U.S. military cyclist was the source of the novel coronavirus outbreak. On March 25 2020, the English-language newspaper urged the U.S. to “release health and infection information of the US military delegation which came to Wuhan for the Military World Games in October.” This, claimed the newspaper, would “end the conjecture about US military personnel bringing COVID-19 to China.”

The newspaper said it was responding to claims made by a U.S. “investigative journalist” George Webb who is described by the New York Times as a “far-right YouTube conspiracy theorist.”

Webb claims that the novel coronavirus was manufactured in a U.S. military lab and brought to China by diplomatic driver Maatje Benassi, a 52-year-old racing cyclist who was in Wuhan in October to take part in the Military World Games."

Yes, this article followed my additional digging on the Chinese Foreign Ministry claims. 60 Minutes would have you believe the CoronaVirus outbreak starting with Team USA at the 2019 Wuhan Games was a story created by conspiracy theorists. In actual fact, the story started from the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

@GeorgWebb: George, I wouldn't even entertain defending your reporting to anyone.

See this Connie? Response from UGETube Support, I received after suggesting we give UGETube a chance to get this right. --> 15 hours ago: "We are not censoring GeorgWebb. Technical problems without him reaching out to resolve it doesn't constitute censorship. @GeorgWebb, please reach out to us ASAP so we can resolve this issue.

@Bob K: Interesting how my first nine videos uploaded with no problem. We only had problems when we need a voice to respond to 60 Minutes. Oh well, I appears to be fixed.

@GeorgWebb: Let's say it's a (rare) coincidence, then. that it AGAIN happened to you. I know it's hard with your 'luck' with these media platforms, bro, unbelievable. But I had quite a few errors and hiccups myself to finally register with ugetube. Gave them the benefit of the doubt, and 'ugetube' had the courtesy to respond which was great. Much appreciated.

@Bob K: Thanks. I was able to access George's videos at the beginning, and I had no trouble registering. and then, for some reason, I couldn't access them. However, now I can, so all is well..
