    love this quote by Hillary re Trine's article & subsequent online chat.....

    "..... in Trines noon-time chat with readers undertaken a few days after she posted her story. I was struck that during this little chat she expressed her surprise at learning, since writing her story, that CFS was as debilitating a disease as patients were now telling her it was. Frankly, if you dont even understand what this disease is and what it does to peopleif that takes you by surprise after your story has been relayed to millions of readersmy dear, you shouldnt be writing about it."

    So in the end, maybe it's a good thing. Perhaps...maybe not as soon as we'd like...but perhaps Trine will actually write a follow-up piece that reflects the truth of the situation. ???

    wouldn't an accurate follow up be nice?

    I read thru the chat and Trine did say that this is a possibility, but I will believe it when I see it

    I would be surprised if she is willing or able to find out the truth.

    Johnson nailed Trine so bad that IF I were Trine I would indeed go back to writing about food. Of course I sent Johnson's blog off to Trine so that she can see what a real researcher/reporter thinks about her. Trine should read what Johnson wrote and learn from what she said. Yet another idiot writing about something they know nothing about. Oh Trine. You got your butt kicked so hard by someone that can kick a butt and kill a career...sooo not good for Trine.

    You should send Hillary's blog to Trine's boss.
