COVID: Report key facts

| December 16, 2020 1:00 AM

Come on man! How can you run an article covering Idaho’s COVID response and totally fail to include an extremely important fact? Last week, Idaho led the nation in the positivity rate at nearly 30%. Kootenai County’s rate was equal that of the state’s. That is one in three of everyone tested, testing positive.

Maybe that doesn’t shock you when you consider that so many totally ignore the mask mandate. What might be even more disturbing is that so many still believe that the virus is a farce.

Now more than ever we need to be told the truth. Come on man, you can do better, must do better. Reporting only the facts that fit a biased opinion is not good journalism. Your readers deserve better.
