Podcast: Newly-revised List of Industry-Independent Experts for Journalists

Gary Schwitzer is founder and publisher of william hill足球HealthNewsReview.org.自2008年以来,他一直致力于帮助维护这份名单,并把它寄给了无数记者。他发微博@garyschwitzer,或者,using our project handle,@HealthNewsRevu.

If anyone ever says that he or she can't find an industry-independent expert for a news story or for an FDA committee,they just haven't looked hard enough.

9年来,我们已经举办了什么,to the best of our knowledge,一个独一无二的医疗行业独立专家名单。威廉希尔足球

Now that list has been revised,with new names,removing even more excuses for those who,过去,published news stories with only conflicted sources or filled committees with only industry-funded members.

这份名单的建立归功于调查记者和英国医学杂志,Jeanne Lenzer,andShannon Brownlee,senior VP of the Lown Institute,who first started the list in 2007.Back then,他们写了这件事on Slateand在里面英国医学杂志.I've helped review applicants,review journalists' requests,and manage the list,随着阿德里安·福格·伯曼,分子动力学,of Georgetown University Medical Center and the PharmedOut.org project.

在这个音频播客中。你可以听到伦泽和布朗利谈论这个名单的历史,what first inspired them to start it,他们想用它做什么,and why the list is also important for the general public,news consumers,医疗保健消费者威廉希尔足球和患者。

As we mentioned in the podcast.about half of the 2,400 stories we've reviewed so far have received unsatisfactory grades for failing to turn to an independent source and/or for failing to explore conflicts of interest in the sources interviewed.A couple of recent examples:

Our list of independent experts can help any journalist overcome these problems.A number of people on the list are part-time editorial contributors to william hill足球HealthNewsReview.org.There are also current and former editors of medical journals,including thePublic Library of Science-Medicine,the国家癌症研究所杂志,以及New England Journal of Medicine.一些名单成员是前FDA顾问,current and past deans and vice-deans of medical schools.

I know that,在我自己多年来对这份名单的管理中,我已经回复了公共电台记者的访问请求,magazines,newspapers,TV networks,and websites.Once I started keeping track of where requests came from,I know we heard from journalists in Arizona,California,佛罗里达州,格鲁吉亚,伊利诺斯Kansas,Massachusetts,Minnesota,New Jersey,纽约,北卡罗莱纳俄亥俄州,Oklahoma,俄勒冈州,宾夕法尼亚,Tennessee,德克萨斯州,Vermont,华盛顿,DC,and Wisconsin (and this is undoubtedly an incomplete list).Journalists from Canada and from at least 5 European countries have asked for,并收到,access.

We who have worked on the list believe that journalism would be better,公众会得到更好的信息,if more reporters turned to this list more often.然后,新闻报道将更加平衡地看待干预措施的潜在利益和危害之间的权衡,这一可能性将得到提高,and delivered more evidence than vested interest opinion.

In the interest of transparency,我相信这篇文章中的提拔名单是我的。
I appreciate this story,因为我认为它描述了一个正在成为媒体流行病的问题,which is "get the scoop on X before someone else does,even if it later turns out to be fake news".Health reporters and watchdogs are not going to solve this broader problem,but at least you have laid out the basic premises in a very important arena for readers to know,or at least begin to know how to ferret out the truth.Reading some of the linked articles gives a step by step approach for both writers and discerning readers.谢谢您。

Excellent podcast,and thanks to all three of you.Including my friend,Jeanne Lenzer.你是否在寻找使这一话题在新闻工作者和公众中更为广为人知的方法?Is,for example,the Knight Science Journalism fellowship program paying enough attention to this?

    感谢您的持续关注和亲切的话语。

    对,我们正在寻找更多的方法来让更多的记者和公众关注这个话题——以及我们的行业独立专家名单。珍妮在工作中有一些事情,about which you may hear more soon.But we are open to ideas.

    我不知道奈特科学新闻奖学金项目是否关注这个问题。Perhaps you could help spread the word to them and others.

Thank you for this.我以前不知道珍妮·伦泽(也许我需要多出去走走)。但香农·布朗利(ShannonBrownlee)和莎伦·贝格利(SharonBegley)是我所知这个领域最可信的记者。如果一个健康商贩告诉我天空是蓝色的,她说天空是绿色的,I at least go look out the window.
