    New blog post from David Tuller:
    Trial By Error: My Six-Month Review

    Given the amount of reporting still left to be done, I will be deciding in the next couple of months whether to conduct another crowdfunding campaign to support another year of work after June 30th.

    :woot:

    Very promising things to come! (Links between PACE trialists and insurance companies, he met one person who was on the PACE trial, two people who were in the Royal Free Hospital outbreak...)

    He is doing some well researched and hard hitting analysis. This is something we definitely needed and need much more of. Where i would go next is getting it published in wider read venues, newspapers, scientific journals and other venues to reach larger audiences. Can someone pass this idea on to David?

    I too would love to see David getting more published in more widely read publications, like newspapers and scientific journals. I'm sure he's well aware of this, but getting published is very difficult. He has had a few successes. And his researches provides material that any of the rest of us can use to support articles we might write ourselves, or refer journalists to for their articles.

    Fair enough, so the question becomes how can we make it happen, do we need to hire/find more people who specialize in writing for the venues we seek, how can we use his investigations to get retractions of flawed published material, how do we get newspapers to do more investigations/articles based on these findings?

    I have my wallet open and am ready to peel off a crisp banknote.

    When the time is right (not sure when that is) I'd love to see him turn over some stones re the SMC and the BBC's investigative servile reporting.

    Tuller is so gifted in the realm of reporting in great, accurate technical detail, which is something we have desperately needed.

    But this is not what it is wanted in most mainstream outlets. Few people are interested in such detail, and even fewer in detail about
    this topic.

    But the way his work is informing journalists like Nathalie is the gift that keeps giving. So either he eventually distills his work into a multi-page-spread MSM blow-out, or he keeps providing this excellent foundation for others to bring it to a wider audience.

    Either way he is a goddam hero. I can't wait to throw more money at him.

    ETA: On second thought it's not an either/or, it could be a both/and. Thank you David!

    Agreed. Quite a lot of very media-savvy people now in different yet complementary advocacy roles, that they each excel in. Hopefully there are more waiting in the wings. If the advocacy pressure continues to increase, and broaden the demographic it reaches, then hopefully things will start to improve.
