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 -

Blogger: "Lights, Camera, Unnecesarean" about NBC Today Show

Posted By


Well, the NBC Today Show’s “Inside the O.R.” series this week has certainly generated blogger criticism. Earlier we posted Larry Husten’s scathing review of the segment on atrial fib ablation. Now Amy Romano on the
Science & Sensibility blog has written about her concerns about the live cesarean section delivery that was part of the series.

NBC execs will probably write off this criticism as coming from a bunch of nobodys – myself included in that bunch of nobodys – but perhaps the suits should pay some attention to the wisdom of the crowds on such matters.

Thanks for the link. In a strange way, it made me feel like a “somebody” to be called a “nobody” on your blog!
There’s plenty of media mishandling (and nonhandling) of maternity care research, so I hope we’ll see it continue to be highlighted on Health News Review.
