Dear Friends:

Nick Regush, former ABC News producer, runs a health news web site raising important issues and exploring ideas related to scientific and medical matters.

One of the great things about his site Red Flags Weekly are the online conferences about a single subject.

Regush opened a conference yesterday on AIDS and The Media that is all about my qualms regarding the New York Times' medical reporter, Dr. Lawrence K. Altman.

When you visit this conference, you'll read how Catherine Mathis, VP for Corporate Communications, has informed me that Dr. Altman is asking the publisher of the Merck Manual to remove his name from the book's masthead.

Please consider participating in the conference and help bring about more scrutiny, and accountability, of AIDS reporting.
