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 -

Another day, another cure on ABC's Good Morning America

Posted By


And another zero-star review by for a morning health news segment.


The story was about facelifts and migraines, and as you can see in the picture above, ABC had to use the tired “Cure?” reference to get our attention.

They got our attention, as we summarized in our review:

Story suggests there may be a cure for migraines – a cure that didn’t eliminate migraines in 43% of people and resulted in complications in 35% of those for whom it did. Is that your kind of cure?

Read the full review to find out much more about what was missing in the story.

I went and read the entire review and I see what you mean now. The complications are worrying.
I am doing some research for my blog as well. I’m hoping to use your references for my research.
