To the editor:
To run an article which aggressively calls into question the safety of blood transfusions   , without so much as a single word countering the scare-mongering, goes well beyond bad reporting and crosses the line to irresponsible, dangerous journalism.
Certainly, there are risks to blood transfusions. But there are risks to pretty much every medical procedure, and to print such a one-sided article is outrageous.
What’s next? Are you going to run a fawning article about how great Jenny McCarthy’s anti-vaccine campaign is?
If your unbalanced article causes someone to refuse a blood transfusion in an emergency and they die as a result, their death is on your hands.
Shame on you.
