As a story develops, journalists sift information of varying reliability, balancing the public’s growing need to know with their own responsibility not to misrepresent the truth. Where news of health, policy, and medicine are concerned, this balancing act is even more crucial, for nothing stokes public panic like a health scare. For more than thirty years, starting with the AIDs epidemic in the 1980s, Marlene Cimons has been performing this balancing act.
