I have just watched more inadequate reporting on TVNZ’s late news.

Hannah Ockelford (Reporter and 2007 Qantas Award winner in the Student Category ) declared the Auckland University Study making a relationship between obesity and sleep was a “world first…”

As I said in my post when the report was released around a week ago on doing a Google Search using the terms “obesity” and “sleep” I found several studies, some as old as 1982, making this connection.

Obviously research hasn’t extended to discovering whether the press releases journalists are handed are old news or new.

One thought on “Obesity and sleep #2”

  1. This is partly the result of inadequate reporting; but partly also just the sensationalist tendencies of academic researchers. Next thing researchers will prove that the Earth is round!

    By the way, Hannah Ockelford is gorgeous!
