The episode on the Jan 6th
The woman who was whispering made me uneasy. Like she’s held hostage as she is telling this story… Its very weird how low she’s talking
Really disappointed and saddened at todays episode on COVID. To give Monica Gandhi even 1 second of air time, touting her as an “infectious disease expert,” is laughable. She has persistently downplayed COVID and has been wrong every single phase of this pandemic (claiming India had herd immunity prior to deadly COVID wave; giving SEVEN reasons why we don’t need boosters BEFORE delta wave in US; labeling Delta variant as “reassuring;” stating the pandemic will essentially be over by Sep/Oct 2021; falsely stating omicron variant won’t swamp hospitals in vaccinated areas; and on and on…). Where did the quality of reporting/fact checking at NPR go? I don’t need a cheerleader when it comes to COVID, I appreciate sound evidence-based, objective, sound reporting.
