SCIENCE Drives Policy!, Elitist, Protectionist, Obstructionist, Obscurantist?, Pressures and Responsibilities All Around
In which we talk about science journalism—the ways in which it is sometimes broken, the reasons why it ends up broken in those cases, and the responsibilities of scientists, scientific journalists, and the science-reading public in publishing and interpreting scientific findings. Science is hard. Reporting on it is hard. Making policy on it is hard. And we need all of them.
