What Neil Bowhay is proposing (Letters, 14 July) is that The Echo prints fake news.
It is people like Neil who, together with Murdoch News, produced so many lies and fake news that the United States of America’s democratic foundations have nearly shattered.
Rather, please, could The Echo continue to provide science-based journalism founded on a majority of the professional evidence.
We do not want the opinions of a tiny minority of non-conformists whose rants lack evidence and undermine most people’s efforts to create a better and safer society.
Please could The Echo continue to call out all purveyors of conspiracy theories and fake news. The current clan of anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers are a threat to public health and need to be policed if they threaten us. We need to keep people COVID-free and healthy.
As an old man I feel particularly threatened when visiting my home town of Mullumbimby, where I have lived since 1972. Why do you want to expose me to risk?
Please help your comrades and don’t threaten them with your misbehaviour.
