Re: “Do newspapers think we can't see who's missing?

Read the lead story in the Chicagoland Health and Family section in the Wednesday Trib. The story touts the value of EKG tests for teenage athletes to determine whether they have heart problems. The anecdotal lead is a young woman who took the test and got a FALSE POSITIVE. This scared the daylights out of her, and she had to get an MRI to prove the EKG test wrong. (MRIs are expensive, but the story doesn't say how much it cost.) Somehow this is supposed to demonstrate the value of the original EKG test. A decent editor might have read the story and thrown it back at the reporter.
