 Specialist Health Reporters can Pen Better News Stories

An analysis has said that specialist health journalists can pen better news stories compared to writers with less experience.

David Henry from the University of Toronto and colleagues analysed Australian news stories over a five-year period, and examined whether experienced specialist health reporters write better stories than other categories of journalists.


They found that it does matter who writes news stories that cover the benefits and harms of health care interventions: stories written by specialist health journalists working for a single media outlet were of higher quality than those written by less experienced writers.

The authors say their findings are important because "this source of health literacy is currently under pressure as falling revenues threaten the future of the traditional media."
