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 -

Star Tribune four months late on Klobuchar breast screening bill

I am a one-man band. A mom-and-pop blogger minus the mom. Yet I’ve written four times since March 26 on the misguided EARLY Act supported by Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of Florida.

• March 26

• June 19

• July 2

• July 13

Finally, this week, the Star Tribune, the biggest news organization in Minnesota, caught up with the story.

Where has the Strib been on this story? Among the smaller Minnesota news organizations that have already reported on the controversy are and KMSP-TV. Yes, a TV station did a better job – sooner – than the state’s biggest newspaper did.

(I will be pleased to run a correction if the Star Tribune reported on this earlier and I missed it. After all, I am merely a one-man band. A mom-and-pop blogger minus the mom.)
