Should Medical Journals Remain Nonpartisan?
For the first time in the history of The New England Journal of Medicine, editors have spoken out against a political candidate. In an editorial, 35 editors from the journal condemned President Trump for his response to the COVID-19 pandemic. While many medical professionals that are unaffiliated with the journal applauded the decision, others feel that NEJM’s reputation for impartiality is now compromised.
