The Climate Spin blog has been interesting of late.
In a recent article, Rob Jacob points to recent improvements in science journalism exemplified by Newsweek reporter Sharon Begley.
While it’s starting to dawn on American journalists how they have been played like a fiddle for the past couple of decades, (something many of us have found painfully obvious all the while) it still seems that they miss important stories. It amazes me that a unanimous declaration by all the G8 science academies got no reporting whatsoever outside a few blogs.
I’d like to know how things get to be considered news at all.
