Accuracy in Media

Washington Post sports columnist Sally Jenkins weighed in on the mask debate by criticizing three-time Olympic gold medal winner Kerry Walsh Jennings for choosing not to wear a mask in public and thereby “mixing up personal liberty and anarchy.”

Walsh Jennings posted on her Instagram page that she decided to try an experiment and go shopping without a mask after reading a quote that shook her and woke her up to how our freedoms have been restricted by state and local governments during the pandemic.

This is what she posted that offended Jenkins:

What seemed to burn Jenkins the most is that Walsh Jennings as an athlete — an Olympian — would dare to express the view that the lockdown and actions by state and local governments have infringed on our personal freedom, a view that she obviously doesn’t share.
