Pro-vaccine advocate and Washington Post editor Fred Hiatt has died of a sudden cardiac arrest. He was 66.
Hiatt was known as a neo-conservative, who strongly opposed President Trump and new conservative leaders like Ron DeSantis. He was also a strong advocate of vaccine mandates, writing that “the right’s reckless anti-vaccine campaign is not mere pandering. It’s fatal.”

While it’s impossible to know what caused Hiatt’s cardiac arrest, some sources are pointing towards a supposed increase in cardiac-related deaths in 2021.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Hiatt’s family.
