Sean Hartman (17) Article Retracted

The COVID World post date: October 5th, 2021

Dear visitor,

After fierce internal debate among our staff, and after engaging in correspondence with the family of Sean, we’ve decided to issue a retraction of the article that we posted on his tragic passing. We do and will continue to stand by the reporting that we gave. We carefully vetted the facts of this tragedy, and we stand by them. However, out of respect for Sean’s family and out of an abundance of sympathy, particularly given his age, we’ve made the difficult decision to pull our reporting. We respect the wishes of Sean’s family. Please consider donating to his GoFundMe which you can find here:

We pride ourselves on reporting only facts, to the best of our ability. If we ever post something in error, we will own it and apologize accordingly. That’s not the case in this instance.

Thank you for your understanding.
