    "Last Word on Nothing" is a blog read primarily by science journalists. Today and tomorrow, they are featuring a piece about ME/CFS (including current issues with the definition) by math/science reporter Julie Rehmeyer.

    From what I have seen, established journalists (apparently influenced by Reeves and Wessely) have almost across the board an incredibly inaccurate understanding of ME/CFS, in many cases willing to argue strongly that it is psychological. And science journalists appear to care a lot about what their peers think. I thus hope that the sharing of accurate information in this venue will change a lot of perceptions and result in better media coverage in the future.

    HHS is not a year early, because they are working to reinforce current attitudes. The hoopla around the IOM contract will drown out the data. This will be another victory for the propaganda machine.
