Calls for Governor Reeves to order mask mandates are not about public health anymore

This long ago ceased to be about public health for many in the media in Mississippi and beyond.  This is purely about politics and virtue signaling.  At this point, the media establishment is using COVID like a political hammer for their partisan ends.

COVID is a terrible thing, but it’s now clear that there’s not going to be such a thing as “zero COVID.”  This is something we are clearly going to have to learn to live with for the perceivable future.

We are now officially past the point where sanctimonious, blue-checkmark finger wagging is going to move the needle with the unvaccinated or with public officials they don’t agree with.  COVID has been politicized and the mainstream media establishment is the most culpable.  Screaming at people that they are idiots for not getting vaccinated is not only not working – it’s now having the opposite effect.
