On may 30, Newsweek printed this article ripping into Oprah for her constant support of “Alternative Medicine” and pseudoscience. It was nice to see mainstream media holding her responsible, or at least calling her out for the crap that she promotes. I understand that it is her show, and she can do what ever she wants, I was just glad to see that someone called bullshit on her. Perhaps she will slowly get more critical of what she talks about.
The other article was from the Associated Press on June 10, which discusses the 2.5 billion dollars spent over the last decade on researching “Alternative Medicine”, and found that none of them are shown to work.
I am excited to see these things in the news. I don’t think these articles will change any ones mind, but they both emphasize science and critical thinking, as well as call out bogus stuff.
