‘Fake news’

Dear Editor:

RE: Mask ‘discrimination’, July 16.

I have a lot of respect for your paper and as such wonder why you allowed the uninformed nonsense in the letter about masks posted by Sandra Owen.

Study after study has shown that there is no drop in oxygen levels caused by wearing a mask. Medical professionals wear them for many hours at a time because they work; if there was an oxygen issue that wouldn’t happen.

I understand that people have a right to their own opinions, but I don’t think that you are obligated to print that sort of “fake news” when it exacerbates a bad situation.
