You can't just yell fire in a theater

I read with partial disbelief a recent letter from Shep Snow. His complaint appears to be lack of press freedom. He goes onto listing roughly 14 news sources will not take dissenting opinions on COVID vaccine. I would add to that list, others in the medical field that promote the vaccine vehemently.

• Dr. Anthony Fauci — leading expert on viruses

Rochelle Walensky — direct of the Centers for Disease Control

Dr. Michael Osterholm — University of Minnesota, one of the leading virologist in the nation and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the university

• The current Surgeon General of the United States

• Dr. Tom Frieden, former CDC director

Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health

When you add the medical experts to the news sources you have a long list of promoters of the vaccine.

You mentioned alternative treatments in 56 countries; please list 10 of them. You mentioned countless doctors who challenged the efficacy of the vaccines. Please lists five of them and their credentials as I have done above.

Freedom of speech does not allow you to yell fire in a movie theater. Thus anyone cannot allow obvious disinformation to be published.

I campaigned for Eisenhower in the sixth grade. He mandated the nation get vaccinated for polio, which we did. Polio was eradicated.

Bottom line: Call any hospital and they will tell you that 90-plus with COVIDE who are hospitalized are unvaccinated. That speaks volumes about the vaccine effectiveness.
