Extract

Recently, I have been asked by several members of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) why I have not written anything about the termination of two prominent medical editors. Obviously, I have not been reticent to express my opinions about other matters, and it seemed strange that I would avoid this issue.

I thought about writing earlier, but Dr. Kassirer and others said it all in their farewell editorials in the New England Journal of Medicine.13 In addition, the members of the World Association of Medical Editors inundated the Internet with e-mails of howling disapproval. A similar spate of e-mails occurred at the termination of Dr. George Lundberg, editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Enough had been written and said about the matter, and nothing had changed the decisions that were made.
