The New York Times interviews Men’s Health editor Peter Moore '78 on Obama health-care coverage
The New York Times interviews Men’s Health editor Peter Moore ’78 for its story about President Obama “taking his argument for a health-care plan to a new place: Rodale magazines, where he or his wife appear on covers of Prevention, Men’s Health, Women’s Health and the new publication Children’s Health.” Moore, who wrote the November 2008 Men’s Health cover story on Obama, followed up by pitching the idea of involving the Obamas in health-care stories in the Rodale magazines. Moore, an English major at Bates, says he approached his most recent Barack Obama interview with a very clear point of view. “We’re not bystanders,” he says. “The whole issue of health care in the U.S., it’s something that we have to feel strongly about. We’re health journalists.” View story from The New York Times, Sept. 2, 2009.
