  • Is that true?

    No. Of course it’s not. But why would we let facts get in the way of a good story? Rodale News doesn’t. The news outlet (and I use that term generously) has published another missive railing against seafood and it starts with a huge factual inaccuracy.

    I’ve got to hand it to Rodale, if you’re going to simply make up part of your narrative you might as well lead with it.  In her first sentence Leah Zerbe writes “To combat filthy conditions, the U.S. government is going to require irradiation of certain seafood favorites.”

  • In her article, “Sorting Out the Risks of Fish,” Roni Rabin does some sorting out alright – sorting out of the vast majority of seafood science including several studies provided to her in advance of her story.  She cites – and misrepresents in part – three studies, while ignoring larger, more recent science to support her claim that “new studies [suggest] that mercury may cause subtle adverse effects at levels lower than those now considered safe by the Environmental Protection Agency, even as they reaffirm the cognitive benefits to children whose mothers ate f

  • This isn’t the first time we’ve suggested Dr. Oz use NFI as a resource to avoid embarrassingly out of touch segments like his latest on Fukushima and Fish:

    Dear Ms. Beaudoin,

    The National Fisheries Institute finds Dr. Oz’s most recent coverage of the aftermath from the Fukushima earthquake and subsequent nuclear accident sensational, unnecessarily alarming and a disservice to his viewers.

  • For many, Consumer Reports is synonymous with cars and electronics but when it comes to reporting on nutrition and fish it’s usually misreporting and manipulation. Here’s their latest blunder.

    Dear Ms. Harris,

    I was surprised and disappointed by the section regarding fish in your article “How Much Is Too Much” in the January, 2014 issue of Real Simple. While author Sarah Copeland sets out to provide health benefits for your readers, her piece on fish creates more myths than it resolves misleading your readers in several ways.

  • It hasn’t been a good run for the venerable news magazine 60 Minutes lately.  You may have seen recently where a high profile correspondent and her producer were put on leave after botching an equally high profile story.

    Dear Mr. Wallace,

    I am writing to express concern over an article featured on your website titled 5 Reasons To Never Eat Shrimp Again. The article contains misleading statements about shrimp that does a fundamental disservice to Yahoo! Health readers. The author, Leah Zerbe, has been challenged in the past for writing inflammatory and skewed articles about seafood in the past that push a hidden agenda.
