Orac takes on TV docs

My fellow blogger Orac at Respectful Insolence has a new post on examples of non-evidence in TV news that are likely to hold sway with viewers because they're proferred or at least tacitly endorsed by MDs, specifically Sanjay Gupta and Holly Phillips.

An antidote to bad TV medical news reporting is Dr. Maria Simbra, a colleague of mine at KDKA-TV in Pittsburg. She's a practicing neurologist, is on the board of the Association of Health Care Journalists (she also has an advanced degree in journalism), and is committed to promoting evidence-based journalism.
