Web site rates quality of health care journalism

Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Beginning today, newspaper and magazine health coverage is being reviewed online at a new Web site.

The address of the site is www-dot-HealthNewsReview-dot-org. Access is free and open to consumers. It was created by University of Minnesota journalism professor Gary Schwitzer, who fashioned the site after similar efforts in Australia and Canada.

Schwitzer directs a graduate program in health care journalism. He says the aim of the site is to help consomers improve their critical thinking about claims in health care.

The reviewers will monitor top newspapers, magazines and other media outlets and rate their coverage of health issues. Articles will be rated on a scale of one to five stars, and the reviewers also will post comments.
