A CNN reporter covering the protests following the killing of Daunte Wright was interrupted live on air by a man who accused her broadcaster and the media as a whole of "making things worse", before daring her and her crew to get as close to the demonstrations as possible. The extraordinary exchange unfolded on Monday night, as Sara Sidner was reporting on a second night of unrest in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, following Wright's death, a 20-year-old Black man who was shot dead by a police officer after his vehicle was stopped over an alleged traffic violation on Sunday afternoon. Sirens and explosions could be heard as Sidner was describing the scenes unfolding behind her, when she was abruptly interrupted by a passer by, who suggested the reporter and the crew were persona non grata on the scene.

"Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." — Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland 1 A longtime patient of mine, whom I like very much, recently shared his views with me on the COVID-19 pandemic. 2 He expressed how disappointed he is with most people for being such unquestioning “sheep,” believing everything the government tells them about the virus. "I'm just so disappointed in people. They can't think for themselves." He, in contrast, does not trust the authorities and does his “own research.” He told me about how he had watched YouTube videos of certain experts on COVID-19, who disagree with the views and advice of public health officials.
