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 -

Must see TV – Frontline’s "Sick Around America"

Posted By


Jon Palfreman, who has produced some of the smartest health care and science documentaries anyone has ever produced, rolls out his newest tonight.

PBS Frontline. “Sick Around America.”

It follows his earlier “Sick Around The World” film.

And it will show once again how you can cover vital health policy issues on TV if you put your mind and creativity to it.

Interesting they ran this program, without any mention of ‘Single-Payer Healthcare’.
In fact, visit:
Start at timer: 38:10
Start at timer: 16:05
It appears the fix is in. I voted for Obama, but for some reason, even a whisper of “Single-Payer” has been erased from the published news media.
