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 -

Check out Croakey – the Crikey health blog from Australia

Melissa Sweet and the Australian Croakey blog (a forum for debate and discussion about health issues and policy), posts a dozen suggestions for improving health reporting “from recent initiatives and articles, in the first part of a mega-wrap covering media and health-related issues.”

Happy to see that she included a couple of links to things I’ve written about recently.

I’m also happy to accept Melissa’s invitation to do a “virtual presentation” for a public interest journalism conference she’s organizing, to be held in Melbourne September 2-3. I only wish I could attend in person.

Croakey also recently posted a “mega-wrap of news in social media and health.”
