(Example of how backed-up I am: WordPress says I started drafting this post on 9/18/08)
I was skeptical when I first heard about Health News Review…but learning that Craig Stoltz was involved with the project
HealthNewsReview.org is published by Gary Schwitzer of the University of Minnesota’s health journalism program and funded by the Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making.
Read a few reviews and you’ll likely find them reliable and wonderfully critical. Be sure to check how how they rate stories.
Health News Review focuses on U.S. news, so anglophones in other nations will want to note these:
For Canadian news, there’s Media Doctor Canada.
Australians have Media Doctor Australia.
The NHS Choices site has a section called Behind the Headlines which seems to serve a similar purpose for U.K. health news.
Your turn: Are there other sites like these that I missed?
