Health News Review

I never would have expected to see a local television sweeps period news story about our work on, but that ‘s what happened when KSTP-TV – the ABC television station in Minneapolis-Saint Paul – aired a piece, “Health Studies: Fact or False Hope” last night.

At the very end of the piece, you’ll hear the announcement:

“We’re going to change the way we cover health news here on 5 Eyewitness News.  Our first step will be to have Gary Schwitzer come in to give a seminar for our producers and reporters.”

I give a lot of credit to Tom Hauser, who’s a veteran political reporter.  We met when he had a regional health journalism fellowship from the Association of Health Care Journalists.  He’s been reporting for more than 20 years, and has seen a lot of the junk health care news that he included in his piece.
