The Media is a Fair Weather Friend: I should have known. We're all agreed that the media is about one thing--ratings. Hence they only bring up stories that are sensational or that they can sensationalize.

So all my worries about the media hyping the Atkins diet should have been tempered by the fact that, sooner or later, the headlines would change from "Atkins Diet Guaranteed Weight Loss Cure" to "Atkins Diet Will Kill You, Possibly By The End of the Day."

I guess this article is sort of an intermediate step.
