Bad Science Journalism?

Image from smbc

Prof. L.A. Moran discusses bad science journalism and if the blame lies on journalists, scientists (or both) on his Sandwalk blog.

In light of the recent media coverage on "Ardi" Dr. Moran shows how scientists are also responsible for propagating misinformation to the general public and that accusing journalists of misquoting them is not always a valid argument.

Please visit the Sandwalk blog and read the post in full.

(Thanks to Cory Robertson for drawing my attention to both the Sandwalk blog and smbc comics )
