The Huffington Post Carries Attack on "Alternatives 2010" Mental Health
ACTION: Ask Editors of Huffington Post For Fair Coverage of Mental Health
by David W. Oaks, Director, MindFreedom International
ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA: Yesterday, the sound of a rare thunderstorm resounded
over the hotel ballroom roof as journalist Robert Whitaker keynoted to the
Alternatives 2010 conference, where more than 1,000 mental health
consumers and psychiatric survivors have registered.
Whitaker delivered a message worthy of the thunder, based on his book
Anatomy of an Epidemic. He provided scientific data that the psychiatric
profession has grossly deceived the public for decades about the risks and
benefits of psychiatric drugs.
BIAS AT THE HUFFINGTON POST
You'd think a blog like The Huffington Post would be intrigued about how a
marginalized population has found its own voice and delivers
You won't find such news in The Huffington Post. Instead, as they have
many times before, The Huffington Post ran another diatribe by extremist
D. J. Jaffe, which you can read here:
In his Huffington Post blog, Jaffe has repeatedly called for making it
easier and easier to get court orders to force us to take psychiatric
drugs, and he does that again in The Huffington Post "news coverage" of
Alternatives 2010. It turns out Jaffe never even made an appearance at the
conference that he "covered."
You can try try adding your comment directly to the debate on Jaffe's blog
entry by logging in on The Huffington Post at the above link.
However, I have submitted two comments to this Huffington Post in blog in
the past two days, and neither one has been approved by their editors so
far. You can read my posts, which have apparently been suppressed, on
MFI's blog here:
IT'S TIME FOR EVERYONE TO CONTACT THE HUFFINGTON POST EDITORS, DIRECTLY.
Ask a simple, strong, civil question. You can do this action without
registering on their web site.
ACTION * ACTION * ACTION
A sample question to ask The Huffington Post -- though your own words are
"Dear Huffington Post Editors: You have bloggers covering mental health.
But why don't you give prominent coverage to any representative from the
mental health consumer and psychiatric survivor movement? Doesn't this
constituency deserve a voice? The disability movement has a saying,
'Nothing About Us, Without Us.' If you carry Jaffe's hate speech, then
what about the other side of the story?"
CONTACT The Huffington Post here:
Because this Huffington Post contact page has no exact feedback form to
Huffington editors, we imagine both the following e-mail addresses could
scoop a huffingtonpost.com
info a huffingtonpost.com
Also, there's a web form there for 'corrections,' and Jaffe has a lot of
errors you can mention. It figures, since apparently he did not even
attend the event he's 'reporting' on.
Please forward this alert to others who care about media bias in mental
