“Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies… tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies."

- Fleetwood Mac (1987)
Perhaps, Gretchen Whitmer and her team are just really big fans of Fleetwood Mac. Or, more likely, their incompetence and arrogance has finally caught up with them and they’ve got no choice but to tell us those not-so-sweet, not-so-little lies.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer isn’t being completely transparent with you about the COVID-19 public health crisis – or her response to it.

You don’t have to take my word for it. Just ask the New York Times? Yeah. That New York Times.

This column first appeared in The Detroit News.

The New York Times editorial board assailed Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for moves she’s made to hide data and public records from voters and the media in the midst of the global COVID-19 health crisis.

The Gray Lady blistered Whitmer, claiming she’s “trampled” open records laws. Their criticism merely amplified a growing murmur and dissatisfaction with Whitmer’s nontransparent handling of the crisis, particularly her penchant for hiding the science and data she claims guide her decision-making.
