Allegations before a medical board have reportedly been dismissed against a Minnesota state senator, who is a doctor, and was accused of spreading misinformation about coronavirus-related deaths.
The dismissal happened two weeks ago.
The following is from Minnesota News Network:

The Minnesota Board of Medical Practice has dismissed the two allegations against Chaska State Senator and physician Scott Jensen.
The original complaint accused Jensen of spreading misinformation about the number of COVID-19-related deaths reported in Minnesota and providing reckless advice in comparing COVID-19 to the flu.
Jensen says he’s “gratified. I appreciate the fact that the Board of Medical practice is doing what it is charged to do, but still, it hangs over your head like a black cloud until the decision is rendered.”
Jensen still feels the complaint may have been politically motivated, but says “I think maybe whoever did this maybe did a good thing in the long run because we’ve had quite a conversation and truly, we will have to look at the Board of Medical Practice and how wide are the guard rails in which they operate.”

This story is all well and good. However, it fails to provide the reader with the critical information. What did Senator Scott Jensen PHD actually say that brought the suit? The fundamental problem with reporting (this has been true doe decades) is that articles are incomplete, untruthful, or treat characterizations as fact. Sad....
