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 -

One week in the wide & wild variations in quality of health care journalism

Posted By


Each week more than 2,400 people receive an email digest of highlights from this site from the past week. What I summarize in those emails is often not summarized as succinctly on the site. So I’ve begun posting the digests here as well.

This week’s digest provides one week’s shapshot of the wide and wild variations in the quality of health care journalism – from Pulitzers to putrid, as I often say.
