JAMA: What Was Lundberg’s Demise?
After 17 years at the helm, George Lundberg was fired last month from his post as editor of one of the nation's most prestigious medical journals, the Journal of the American Medical Association. His offense? -- publishing an article about what it means to "have sex" on the eve of the Senate impeachment trial of President and philanderer Bill Clinton. As the dust settles, this week's Stryker's Corner, by California Healthline's Jeff Stryker, looks at the paper that proved to be the "last straw" for Lundberg's bosses.
