Senior Tony Blankley Fellow at the Steamboat Institute Hadley Heath Manning was recently smeared by the Washington Post. After publicizing a letter she wrote to her son’s daycare — respectfully request the daycare make masks for children a parental choice — the Post went after her.
Hadley, who is the director of policy at Independent Women’s Forum and Independent Women’s Voice, took to television to push back against the criticism she received. She first joined Fox Business to speak with Charles Payne and was then featured on Fox News to discuss the matter:
“I wrote this as a mother out of concern for my son. I wrote to the head of his preschool and I asked that they consider making masks a matter of parental choice.
The Washington Post article is meant to smear me and my employer, but the worst implication is that parental pushback across the country is part of a conspiracy, that it’s not sincere, civil or legitimate. But the concerns of parents are legitimate and deserve to be heard.”
