OPINION: Katie Lied?* Biased RI Reporting on a Possible Covid-19 Vaccine Requirement for School Children (*apologies to Steely Dan)

The promise of journalistic objectivity is not fulfilled by biased RI Reporting on a Possible Covid-19 Vaccine Requirement for School Children

Covid-19 Vaccine Zealotry Continues To Plague Our Children (Nationally, and Here In Rhode Island)

The CDC’s house organ publication Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports (MMWR) released nationally representative surveillance data that fully 74-75% of children aged <1 to 17 years old had antibodies to the nucleocapsid protein of SARSCOV2 as of February 2022. These findings, in lay terms, mean that three-fourths of U.S. children and adolescents through age 17 had naturally-acquired immunity to covid-19, by February 2022, conferring them with a protection which is more broad and enduring than covid-19 vaccine-acquired immunity.

Subsequently, there has been much public debate and outcry about the wisdom and motives behind this heavy-handed policy, including a lawsuit brought by concerned parents.
