Notorious New York Times propagandist Apoorva Mandavilli did as much to promote irrational coronavirus panic and extended school closures as anyone outside of government, with this among her many unforgettable corrections as the paper’s purported COVID expert:

We can’t move on from COVID when the villains are still being praised as heroes.
