You would think that a massive malfunction of Canada's health care system, involving an incompetently run blood banking system, thousands of HIV and hepatitis C infections and deaths caused by negligence, and criminal prosecutions, would be found newsworthy by the US media.  Incredibly, aside from brief reports of dismissals of the criminal indictments given with no explanation of the underlying disaster, the whole affair has been virtually blacked out by our media.  Such a screw up in a health care system which has been portrayed as a desirable alternative to our own certainly deserves closer scrutiny.  Read about it at Hot Medical News.
