Oregonian ripped for misleading headline
“Hospitalized kids at record high.”

Which was not true – in fact, it was the number of hospitalized kids WITH COVID was at a high.
The actual number was 31 – which is less than the total of 39 counties in Oregon. We know from other reports that probably half were hospitalized for reasons other than Covid and were only identified as having Covid due to a “positive test”.
The Oregonian, like all media, thrives on fear and scaring you to death, causing untold mental health harm. Just look at the panic expressed by many on social media if you are not seeing the level of anxiety, panic and depression the actions of the media have caused.
