Swine flu and the media

Posted Jul 01 2009 6:45pm

Interesting blog post by Kajsa Wilhelmsson on the potentially devastating impact media’s making in its reporting of the swine flu pandemic. Includes a link to a video by the always facinating Hans Rolsing at Gapminder who contrasts the way in which the media have swarmed to the swine flu story whilst universally ignoring a genuine global catastrophe in the form of deaths from TB. He ends by warning us all against the dangers of media hype.
