The author takes the position that medical journals have many problems and need reform. He argues they are over influenced by the pharmaceutical industry, too fond of the mass media, and yet neglectful of patients. The research they contain is hard to interpret and prone to bias, and peer review, the process at the heart of journals and all of science, is deeply flawed. Editors themselves misbehave.
