    It has been reported for months Mr. Sharpe has been battling a lengthy illness and underwent heart surgery in 2020. I have not read or heard from any credible news outlets or sources that it was due to reaction from the vaccine. Why not write what was reported? Why spread a rumor? If it comes out that that was the case, then by all means publish it. We have enough tragedies to deal with, fear mongering doesn’t help.

      You are right. But we never said he died of the COVID vaccine. We only mentioned that he was recently hospitalized due to a reaction to the vaccine.
      In the last update, his illness was also mentioned.
      Thank you for your attention and reminder.

    It is unfortunate and indeed regrettable that the passing of this GIANT of a man, so probing and fair in his journalistic role; is shrouded in secrecy. This will further heighten the curiosity of people and ultimately fuel VACCINE HESITANCY. Is this what he would have wanted?
    Ultimately, the truth will come out.

      He will be immortal in history, and although he is dead, he is still alive in the minds.
      God bless him.
