The Medscape article is fairly unbiased.

One problem with our current guideline process is the plethora of
guidelines available. The national guideline clearing house has between 32
and 52 sets of guidelines on breast cancer screening. While the USPSTF
guidelines are probably the least biased, other well meaning people with or
without any of several potential biases, may believe another set of
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Literally translated from the Roman Poet
Juvenal as "Who will guard the guards themselves". In this context I meant
a more focused use of the concept. "Who will guide the guideline writers".
