I will readily say that mainstream media outlets have a one-sided medical only slant on news when it comes to reporting on current health issues.
An informative health journalism review organization I subscribe to sent out an evaluation that can serve as a very specific example of what I mean.
From the TODAY show here is a 6-minute segment almost completely devoid of evidence and data, riding the single personal anecdote of the network's medical editor. Disease-mongering. Incomplete story on heart CT scans....
I also have to offer that the reference in the video to using statins is not very good information based on the science, even if it is coming from a doctor.
