Interesting take on how the media reports on cancer from our friend Christian Sinclair at Pallimed.
As a former reporter and current PR professional, the results of this study aren't all that surprising. Reporters, believe it or not, are looking for positive, compelling stories to tell. A successful battle against cancer fits the bill. The negatives involved with fighting cancer are less inviting to share for both the reporter and the patient/family.
Thanks Christian and keep it coming.
