Download Audio

For the first time in its history, the prestigious, Waltham-based New England Journal of Medicine is directly wading into politics.

Without directly naming President Trump or any politician, it is calling for current lawmakers to be voted out over their handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Eric Rubin, the editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, joined WBUR's Morning Edition host Bob Oakes to discuss.

This segment aired on October 8, 2020.
