Free Press Journalist, Max Engle, declared in a staff meeting earlier this week that he “doesn’t want to write about COVID-19” and he is afraid it will “make the paper unappealing to readers in the future.”

When Assistant Editor Jake Fine pointed out that “it’s a newspaper… it’s supposed to about current events.” Staff Reporter Engle just responded by shrugging his shoulders. “The date is literally on the top of the paper, readers would understand what the context was if they were to look back at past publications…” added Fine, to no significant response from Engle.

This is a breaking story. Look to the Free Press about all news McDaniel, and no news COVID- 19.
