MASKS: Press pro-mask bias

| August 4, 2020 10:33 AM

Why does the Coeur d’Alene Press not expand on the articles written recently by local Dr. Wayne M. Fichter Jr.? The past two Wednesdays his advertorial column has done a great job of debunking some of the myths surrounding masks; balanced journalism, in my opinion, would involve further exploration of the points he makes which are also from well established sources, not merely Dr. Fichter’s opinion. Instead, each issue of The Press is dominated by pro-mask stories and how the world will be saved from the virus if we all mask up.

Masks have many negative side effects that are rarely discussed. If The Press will not shine more light on Dr. Fichter’s column, I hope readers will go back and read his last two columns.
