As we close out the week and prepare to head to a beach for a desperately-needed mid-winter break, here are some catch-up items we meant to write about earlier.
“The question is, can we make enough people go: ‘Hey, you know what? I’m done. I’m done with the sensationalism of media. I’m done being taken advantage of by media companies so that I can have ads sold to me.’ … If we want to make media better, then we’ve got to start consuming better media.”
I have often said that many news organizations are out of touch with the communities they are supposed to serve on health care issues – out of touch with what readers/consumers really need from health care news stories. We base our 10 story review criteria on things we think consumers need from stories.
That’s a wrap.
See you back here on the blog in a week or so with sand still between our toes.
