I like to see this. Maybe the competitive juices will generate some improvement in health news coverage.
A Los Angeles Times blog post – reporting on our announcement yesterday that HealthNewsReview.org won’t do regular reviews of TV health news anymore – then compared the Times’ scores with the TV networks.
Need more evidence that you should get your information about new developments in medicine from reliable news outlets such as the Los Angeles Times rather than from TV? We offer you the following.
And then they went on to post the scorecard:
Average TV networks’ score: 2.1 stars out of 5 possible
Average LA Times score: 3.84 stars out of 5 possible
Let the healthy competition begin.
