My first investigation for 'The Epoch Times' on hospital staff shortage from COVID, despite vaccine mandate
Houston Memorial Hospital fired nurses with natural immunity
Paid subscribers— make sure to read the note to you at the end….
I am excited to share with you that my first investigative report for The Epoch Times is published today here: EXCLUSIVE: Hospital Faces Staff Shortages Due to COVID-19 Infections, Despite Vaccine Mandate
(After I emailed you, I found out that my story is behind their paywall, but their current special is one month all access for just signing in with an email.)
You’ll know two of the people in the story. You were the first to read about Houston Memorial Hospital Dr. Mary Talley Bowden who was suspended because she opposed vaccine mandates. You read about her nurse Jennifer Bridges who was fired for not getting vaccinated.
I was approached by The Epoch Times recently and asked if I would consider doing investigative reporting for them. They told me that they had been reading my reporting here on “Emily Posts News” and were impressed with my work.
We talked at length, and I found we share priorities of journalism ethics, professional standards and prioritizing facts. They are also just nice people. If you’re not familiar with The Epoch Times, read about their mission and philosophy here.
New benefits for paid subscribers
As I add work for The Epoch Times, it will not affect the quality and quantity of newsletters for you. However, I am going to give paid subscribers more exclusive content by writing one newsletter a week that is only for you. It will be more of my analysis, my take on the news and my experiences in Washington.
Paid subscribers will continue to be the only ones who can leave comments and engage with me directly.
Thank you for reading and supporting me for the past 16 months as I built this site for independent journalism and civil discussion. I’ll continue to constantly dig through tips and talk to sources to bring you news and unique stories that you can’t find anywhere else.
So, read my report today on the failed hospital vaccine mandate in The Epoch Times, but come here so we can discuss it in the comments.
👏 👏 👏 👏 Good for you, Emily. Branching out a bit! Congrats 👍
Congratulations on the new gig. You're certainly deserving based on the great work you do.
