Mainstream Coverage

Is it bad that I get excited at the mere sight of diabetes coverage in more mainstream outlets that simply “get it right”? It doesn’t matter what they’re talking about, but the simple idea that the topic of diabetes is reaching eyeballs of the un, or underinformed, makes me happy.

Today a few of my friends shared this article from NPR asking why insulin is so expensive. Last year this article about Sierra Sandison made a number of rounds across the Internet. Remember that dominatrix lady from CSI who also had type 1 diabetes? Maybe that was just me.

I suppose it’s telling that any factual coverage is enough for me, but we have to start somewhere, right?

Here, have a cat paw.

  1. Yep, same here. I think it’s important to recognize those mainstream stories that get it right, just as we call out those that don’t get it right. Let them and their editors know they did a good job, when so many get it wrong. Goes a long way (spoken as a journalism guy).
