'Shame on You'



Your article of posted Nov. 13 headlined "Student Tests Positive for COVID 19 at Fortuna High" seems to fall far short of any kind of thorough journalism.

By limiting the information to only those administrative individuals whose butts need covering, you embrace an obvious conflict of interest. While the superintendent (who sometimes, you report, returns phone calls and other times does not) assures us all that safety protocol is followed, a comment posted in response to your article tells a very different story. Indeed, that comment is far more informative than your reporting on this matter.

Where are the voices of the parents, the teachers, the line staff in those places? The lived experience of those in harm's way would tell a fuller story. Shame on you for falling short on so serious a matter.

Steve Infantino, Arcata
