Abstract

On January 15, 1999, George D. Lundberg, MD, was dismissed as Editor of JAMA and Editor-in-Chief of AMA's Scientific Information and Multimedia. In a written statement, AMA Executive Vice President E. Ratcliffe Anderson, Jr, MD, said that Dr Lundberg "threatened the historic tradition and integrity of the Journal of the American Medical Association by inappropriately and inexcusably interjecting JAMA into a major political debate that has nothing to do with science or medicine."
