You can’t mask this reality

It is deeply frustrating for me to think about how many different players in 2020 were misinformed about healthcare. In my 47-year career, I have never seen any president, his administration, the leaders of the Federal Health Agency, many elected officials. And many others distort and deceive and most of them I have witnessed this past year. Some news organizations and individual journalists reached new heights in explanation and analysis to help the public. But other corners of the journalism and public relations business sink to the bottom of Drake’s daily drumbeat – more harm than good.

On this page I will review the HealthNews review in 2020. Others were written by Mary Chris Jaklevic, Joe now writes for the Journal of the American Medical Association (Dress)
