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 - https://archive.org/web/.

Gee, and CNN said the USPSTF stood all alone on this one

Eleven of the nation’s leading health and prevention organizations today sent a letter to Congress that defended the recent recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force regarding breast cancer screening and set the record straight about recent public misstatements regarding the recommendations.

The letter was signed by leaders of the following organizations: American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, American Academy of Physician Assistants, American College of Physicians, American College of Preventive Medicine, American Journal of Preventive Medicine, American Public Health Association, National Association of County and City Health Officials, Partnership for Prevention, Public Health Institute, and Trust for America’s Health. (From PR Newswire release.)

But just two weeks ago, CNN reported boldly:

“This task force is the only big group that is saying this. There are lots of groups that disagree with this.”

Hmmm.  Maybe they should have made a few more calls.  Or at least not relied on the voices with big PR machines.
