Disgusted and disappointed to see you had the Worcester pastor who is defying state orders to hold church gatherings on to hear “his side”. He is NOT the group of people in this country being persecuted by defying SCIENCE-BASED policy to protect those who haven’t yet died in the state from this disease. I can’t believe at this point in time you would bring someone like that on air and not challenge them further. There are so many people sacrificing everything they have to help others in the state and yet this is who you give air time to. Seriously disappointed in this reporting.
