Local reporters face backlash for covering Covid surge

Reporters Leada Gore in Alabama, Keisha Rowe in Mississippi, and Emily Woodruff in Louisiana talk about covering the pandemic in some of America’s least-vaccinated areas.

“I could have a story that shows you we added a thousand cases and I will receive 20 e-mails saying that the numbers are made up,” Gore says.

Rowe says the resistance “makes me a little bit hungrier to get the information out there even more.”
