Anti-Vaxxer Sees Partial Revival Of Case Against Hearst


Today, he describes himself as a “multi-family real estate investor” who 10 months ago shared on social media that he was under contract for a five-unit commercial residential property in Clearwater, Fla.

Until February 2022, he was a videographer for Chronicle, the news feature program that has been a hallmark of Hearst Television flagship WCVB-5 in Boston for more than 40 years.
