A message to journalists from the general public:

1) We understand that unexpected crises are impossible to manage without making mistakes. We're not interested in blaming our leaders, we want them to succeed.

2) We don't care about U-turns. We want our leaders to...
...change their minds when the facts change.

3) We don't care about palace intrigue. If we want a soap opera, we'll watch one.

4) We trust you even less than politicians but unlike you, they're actually working to save lives. You're working to save your ratings and careers.
5) If you want to actually protect your careers, start doing responsible journalism and stop playing games with a pandemic. Otherwise, we will continue do what we have been doing for decades: switch off you and onto alternative media.

Thank you,

General Public
