NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

Cascade of cardiology stories

Sorry I’ve been a little slow with posts in the past few days.

First, there’s digging out from under a foot of new snow in the Twin Cities.

Second, there’s digging out from under an avalanche of cardiology-related news coming out of the American College of Cardiology meeting.

It reminds me of the excellent paper by Woloshin and Schwartz in JAMA a few years ago, “Media Coverage of Scientific Meetings: Too Much, Too Soon?”. Their conclusion: “Abstracts at scientific meetings receive substantial attention in the high-profile media. A substantial number of the studies remain unpublished, precluding evaluation in the scientific community.”
