I really need to hand those out with my Meidaat paper

My thesis dealt with Ynet and NRG health reporting, and soon enough (September) the journal Meidaat (Hebrew, unfortunately) is about to publish a paper based on said thesis. These labels are more than appropriate...

Most of the papers reported (two-thirds in Ynet, three-quarters in NRG) did appear in a peer-review journal, but I doubt the "journalists" actually read them.

My favorite finding of all times was a sentence with a word misspelled in a hospital press release that appeared, intact, in a Ynet article. Invest in a good spell checker (and in good science reporting...). It was one of those researches that *didn't* come from a peer-reviewed journal.
