BJOG Editor’s Choice: Commentaries and BJOG


Thorp, John M., Jr. (2013). BJOG Editor's Choice: Commentaries and BJOG. BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, 120(8), i-ii.


The 24/7 news cycle in broadcast and web-based journalism has flooded the world with pundits issuing their opinions after every factual report. As a cynical observer, I have often wondered whether their role is to advance knowledge with their diversity of opinions or whether it is just a filler to lead to the next commercial. What used to be a pleasant interlude now seems like mandated mediocrity with one commentator in agreement, one disagreeing, and one not so sure.
