I am a big supporter of the local newspaper and the press. I grew up reading newspapers like the Los Angeles Times and knew what the Fresno Bee meant to the city of Fresno, California. When articles are composed here I lean upon the press to back up posts and the claims that I make. During the COVID-19 pandemic I want to draw your attention to some decisions made by a few newspapers for the sake of public safety. In the past few days The San Jose Mercury News along with the New York Times and the Washington Post have dropped their paywalls during the COVID-19 pandemic and all articles that relate to the COVID-19 virus. For those who read this blog or who find it on the internet I want to steer people to responsible news sources especially during a frightening time like today.
