A voice of reason?

NewstalkZB reports;

"A member of the Otago District Health Board has criticised the news media for hyping-up the threat of bird flu. Central Otago mayor (Dr) Malcolm Macpherson says; the news media is pumping up the shock-horror story; public health experts are relishing their hour in the spotlight; and the drug industry is peddling its products."
