Justice, finally, for stricken Washington Post reporter by David Beard Here's a short article by a former colleague of Brian Vastag ( @B_V ) published on the Poynter website. Despite its brevity, there are enough links to provide details for the less-informed. https://www.poynter.org/news/justice-finally-stricken-washington-post-reporter "He worked for the richest man in the world. He was an energetic hiker and lover of the outdoors — and a hard-charging science writer for The Washington Post (where we worked together). In 2012, Brian Vastag was felled by a fever. He’s never recovered. The science reporter was stricken by what he calls “the most forlorn of orphan illnesses” — myalgic encephalomyelitis" The article ends with this paragraph: "Readers, have you or do you know of anyone who has gotten ME, in or outside of journalism? Were the claims treated seriously? Has your company evolved in its view of ME? Let me know at email@example.com. Thanks!" Here's a link to information about the Poynter Institute: https://www.poynter.org/about-us It starts by saying: "The Poynter Institute is a global leader in journalism. It is the world’s leading instructor, innovator, convener and resource for anyone who aspires to engage and inform citizens in 21st century democracies." It appears David Beard may be interested in reporting more about ME. If so, this could be an excellent opportunity to gain an ally in the field of journalism.
