TV networks ignore health story costs and evidence

Bad week on network TV.

Stories on…

• a male contraceptive

• robotic surgery

• a new MRI device

* and a new skin cancer detection device

all failed to discuss costs, to quantify benefits and harms, or to give independent perspectives.

Viewers of these programs got one-sided, incomplete, imbalanced portrayals of health care treatments, tests, products and procedures.
