The majority of Americans turn to the news media as sources of trustworthy, reliable, credible health information. More than half of the public gets its health information mainly from the media. Research shows that the media can affect the public’s perception of the importance of specific health issues. Media also play a key role in connecting the public, policy makers, and legislators.
