As most of you know, this website is written, edited, published, and designed by a group of practicing MDs, biomed engineers and US-based medical students. It is a hobby for us, but it is also a part time job. When it comes to medicine and technology, we know exactly what we are talking about. Well, Google News thinks otherwise.
Partially because this publication is a blog, Medgadget is constantly relegated to a second-class status by Google News. We are never a main headline news source, while such websites as Playfuls.com (with their moronic headlines lacking any scientific understanding), and press release re-printers such as MedicalNewsToday.com and News-Medical.net are routinely profiled as champions in medical news reporting. The most we ever get from Google News is when one of our pictures is placed to illustrate someone else’s main headline.
Just a pet peeve… After all, we hope, we’re not complete morons around here.
