Main Results: The results showed that DN scored an average of 57% “satisfactory” and UNT scored an average of 52% “satisfactory” of Media Doctors rating scale. Strengths were an educational tone and an insightful review of the newest findings in the scientific community. Weaknesses were poor transparency and a tendency to neglect full disclosure of the scientific findings and sources. Focus was also show to be on research and not on information for potential patients. Media Doctor was also shown to be a well formatted media accountability system which gave insights to the broad uses of such systems.
