How we can hijack the media, in four easy lessons
Love it, hate it, good story, bad story... the media are going to keep reporting on ME/CFS no matter what. But isn’t it time that we saw that coverage as an opportunity?

    To read a letter from Veronica Jones
    click http://www.mefreeforall.org/index.php?id=2696#c10327

    Any letters in response should be sent to e-mail address
    editorial@gazettenews.co.uk

    So far, 2 letters known to have been sent to Letters Editor and 4 comments under the news article. All tend towards the same opinion, so it would be interesting to see if there are any to come with a different view or add extra support. Either way, it all does help to get some published.

    Cheers

    Well said drjohn again - none in these parts could even think of - guess we are the silent majority. (Microsoft Office required to add a comment unfortunately).

    Thanks, Enid, I keep trying to hammer home the message that it takes little or no extra energy for people to make the same comment they do online to the newspaper version and/or as a comment under the article (I never miss a drop) but they will continue to preach to the converted. WE already know about it. It is the general public that need educating. Included amongst these are the primary care doctors you see first and the seriousness with which this illness is taken will be reflected in how much is allocated to research. Well done for keeping your eye on things. John
