HEALTHCARE TOP TEN….Brad Plumer picks up where I left off yesterday and provides a list of three reasons of why media coverage of national healthcare systems in other countries is so dismal. I agree with them all.
Matt Yglesias takes the ball from there and adds seven more. I think I agree with all of his bullet points as well, and would probably add “Harry and Louise” to round out the list.
So there you have it. Combine Matt’s #4 and #5, then add his list to Brad’s, and then toss in Harry and Louise, and you’ve got a handy Top Ten list of why media coverage of healthcare sucks. Maybe someone should print it up as a flyer and start a campaign to tape it to newsroom doors around the country.
