A completely incompetent governor, Arizona newspaper publisher who suppressed life-saving information, and now staggering numbers of cases and casualties
The Arizona Scandal
It’s very clear that political opportunist Doug Ducey, the ever-vacillating governor of Arizona is unfit for office, not unlike many of his counterparts at the national level. His mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to predictable consequences.
Doug Ducey, Governor of Arizona
I sent the information first published on February 25th, to Gov. Ducey, other governmental and medical officials – and the media – throughout Arizona, on March 5th, when there were only five cases in the state. There are now over 326,000 cases and more than 6,600 deaths, only eight months later.
In addition to Ducey, recipients included the Arizona Daily Sun, and its publisher, Colleen Brady. Unlike Ducey, the newspaper’s supposedly in the business of…reporting the news. Ms. Brady and her staff expressed no interest in investigating, questioning, challenging, or interviewing me about the life-saving information.
From an emai*:
“We review, research and make the decision on what stories we bring to our readers and to Flagstaff. ”
Arizona Daily Sun
How could she “review, research” such specific, accurate information and NOT report on it? Why did she prevent her readers from determining the truth for themselves? And what did her supposed review and research reveal that compelled her to completely censor the information? Certainly her readers deserved to know at least that.
While one competent, responsible person can make a positive difference in the way events proceed in the world, it’s also true that one incompetent, unqualified person, in a position of power or authority, can do enormous damage. We have two examples above, of many.
For the Record
On Tuesday, November 24th, I spoke at the Flagstaff City Council online meeting. I put into the public record the role that I think Ms. Brady and her newspaper have played in deliberately preventing the public from knowing the real facts and in contributing greatly to the massive numbers of cases and deaths in the state.
A documentary will be released in the new year focusing on the arrogance, incompetence and culpability of the Arizona Daily Sun, Ms. Brady and her staff, as well as that of NPR radio station, KNAU, and other parties in Arizona who, despite ample, detailed, repeated, accurate warnings, failed in their duties to the public. They did worse than nothing. They suppressed, ignored and censored the vitally important, life-saving information…as the numbers show.
