Who gets to decide which information is a lie vs an opinion? As has been pointed out previously, the left proclaimed that any talk of the virus possibly escaping from a lab was deemed misinformation or down right lies. However, as more evidence has been produced, it is now the most likely theory as to how the virus was introduced into the population. So when does a lie become truthful?

The point is that there differing opinions on a variety of topics and generally speaking, more information is better than less. Why in the world would anyone wish to restrict more information, especially when a good number of those presenting were also doctors that were highly educated in their fields?
