The media and public health: complexity, controversy and combat

Interesting responses received from both public health and media colleagues on my recent article.  Some print journalist colleagues took exception to it based on hearing a summary on radio but felt it was more balanced when they actually read the article.  Ironically, some institutional media relations folks wanted to be briefed on the implications of an article suggesting that institutions sometimes seek to over manage the media.
The article was a commentary on Melissa Sweet's very interesting paper:  Learning from journalists’ experiences of the H1N1 pandemic
