See Maggie Mahar’s entry on the HealthBeat blog.

And for a little wisdom of the crowd, here is one online reader reaction to Maggie’s post:

“Our local CBS station has a regular feature called “Breakthroughs Everyday” featuring one healthcare network. I’ve written to the news director at this station requesting, in the interests of fair and impartial journalism, that they also have a regular feature entitled “Failures Everyday” and start reporting on the stories of patients from the same hospital. No reply. … The hospital PR has disgusted me for years.”
