Ouch! Fellow editors tear up the NYT for sloppy, "misguided" technology coverage

My colleagues, Mark Hagland, editor-in-chief of Healthcare Informatics magazine, and David Raths, HCI's Senior Contributing editor, are usually very even-tempered fellows. But today, I could tell they were a little upset.

Mark's blog takes issue with the New York Times ongoing coverage of the HITECH Act ("misguided" to put it mildly), while David takes on the paper's ongoing put-down of efforts to bring "boondoggle" EHR technology to the U.S. healthcare system. Rather than offer exerpts of these pieces, which couldn't do them justice, I invite you to read them for yourself.
