Science journalism has a problem Watch the newest video from Big Think: 🤍 Join Big Think Edge for exclusive videos: 🤍 Journalists writing about science have become more science fluent over the past 20 years, but the need to be first and the practice of giving equal exposure to opposing views regardless of scientific evidence (e.g. climate change) has been detrimental to the public's understanding of the facts. Reporting on science from the "frontier" doesn't provide the full picture because it doesn't give scientists time to verify and re-verify the results of experiments. Journalists have more power than scientists when it comes to disseminating information, so it's their inherent responsibility to get the facts right. NEIL DEGRASSE: Neil deGrasse Tyson was born and raised in New York City where he was educated in the public schools clear through his graduation from the Bronx High School of Science. Tyson went on to earn his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. He is the first occupant of the Frederick P. Rose Directorship of the Hayden Planetarium. His professional research interests are broad, but include star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies, and the structure of our Milky Way. Tyson obtains his data from the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as from telescopes in California, New Mexico, Arizona, and in the Andes Mountains of Chile.Tyson is the recipient of nine honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal. His contributions to the public appreciation of the cosmos have been recognized by the International Astronomical Union in their official naming of asteroid "13123 Tyson". Tyson's new book is Letters From an Astrophysicist (2019). TRANSCRIPT: Neil deGrasse Tyson: I remember some years ago, 20 years ago, anytime I was interviewed by a journalist, a print journalist. The print journalism is taking what I said and turning it into an article. So it has to pass through the journalist, get processed and then it becomes some written content on a page. One hundred percent of those experiences the journalist got something fundamentally wrong with the subject matter. And just an interesting point about the power of journalists. I had people read the article and say Neil, you must know better than that. That’s not how this works. They assumed the journalist was correct about reporting what I said. Not that I was correct and that the journalist was wrong. Okay, this is an interesting power that journalists have over whether you think what they’re writing is true or not. I even had a case – I have one brother and a sister. I had a case where they misreported that I had two brothers. And I had a friend of mine who had been a friend for five or ten years say Neil, I just read – I didn’t know you had two brothers. And I said I don’t. Well it says it right here. This is the power of journalism. A mistake becomes truth. That was decades ago. In recent years what I think has happened is there are more journalists who are science fluent that are writing about science than was the case 20 years ago. So now I don’t have to worry about the journalist missing something fundamental about what I’m trying to describe. And reporting has been much more accurate in recent years I’m happy to report. However, there’s something that has not been fixed in journalism yet. It’s their urge to get the story first, the science story, the breaking news about a discovery. The urge to get it first means they’re reporting on something that’s not yet verified by other scientific experiments. If it’s not yet verified it’s not there yet. And you’re more likely to write about a story that is most extraordinary. And the more extraordinary is the single scientific result, the less likely it is that it’s going to be true. So you need some restraint there or some way to buffer the account. I don’t want you to not talk about it but say this is not yet verified, it’s not yet this, it’s not yet that. And it’s been criticized by these other people anyway so be more open about how wrong the thing is you’re reporting on could be. Because other wise you’re doing a disservice to the public. And that disservice is you’ll say people out there say scientists don’t know anything. Well what gives you that idea? Well one week cholesterol is good for you and the next week it’s bad for you. They don’t know what they’re doing. That’s on the frontier. On the frontier science is flipflopping all the time. Yes, if you’re going to report from the frontier it looks like scientists are clueless about everything. To read the full transcript, go to: 🤍
We’ve talked a lot in this series about how often you see data and statistics in the news and on social media - which is ALL THE TIME! But how do you know who and what you can trust? Today, we’re going to talk about how we, as consumers, can spot flawed studies, sensationalized articles, and just plain poor reporting. And this isn’t to say that all science articles you read on facebook or in magazines are wrong, but that it's valuable to read those catchy headlines with some skepticism. Crash Course is on Patreon!

For months now, journalists around the world have been on a crash course in reporting on medical science. But they had no experience in covering a pandemic. Now we are turning to journalists with some actual credentials in this field: science and health reporters. In many cases, they were the first to recognise the dangers of the outbreak in Wuhan, leaving the rest of us to play catch-up. The Listening Post's Flo Phillips spoke with three science journalists, from three different countries, about how they sounded the alarm on the virus that would come to be known as COVID-19. "It was something I definitely thought we needed to be watching," Helen Branswell, Senior Infectious Disease Reporter for STAT news explained. "The reports out of China were starting to become alarming because the numbers were growing pretty quickly. So if you watch these kinds of outbreaks over time, this was something that was setting off alarm bells." And in fact, many of these reporters have been watching out for these types of outbreaks for years. Back in 2013, Kai Kupferschmidt, a contributing correspondent for Science magazine, wrote an article about a bat in China carrying a potential pandemic. "Again and again, in the last 10 years or so, when I was doing my reporting, this sentence came up from scientists," Kupferschmidt said. "They were telling me, you know, it's not a question of if there will be a big pandemic. The question is when." Since the outbreak, science journalists have been relentlessly reporting. They have introduced audiences to concepts such as flattening the curve and social distancing; they have explained the need for lockdowns and mass testing, and; they have challenged governments on their pandemic responses. For their efforts, many have witnessed skyrocketing readership and online followings. But this new attention has come with a price, as political polarisation can often taint the information and lead to ad hominem attacks. "They want the reporting to be in line with the politics so that it doesn't make India look bad", said Vidya Krishnan, a health and science journalist from the country. "The minute the story goes online, we have government handles and politicians attacking individual reporters and questioning our integrity and dismissing the story without actually pointing out what's wrong factually that's being put out." In the United States, a similar picture has emerged. "One of the things that I found tragic about this pandemic and the coverage of the pandemic is how politicised the whole thing has become," said Branswell. "Which side of the divide people fall on relates to which party they support. There's a deep misunderstanding of what's going on in certain parts of the country." With COVID-19 becoming as much about the politics as it is about the science, many science journalists have been left out of the daily press briefings - hardly the best use of available resources when the story you are covering is a pandemic. "I'm not sure that science journalists need to take the lead, but I certainly think they should be at the table," said Kupferschmidt. "There are a lot of important questions that science journalists know to ask that political journalists don't know to ask. It just seems like this press conference would really profit if there were also science journalists there."

BIDS Data Science Lecture Series | March 4, 2016 | 1:10-2:30 p.m. | 190 Doe Library, UC Berkeley Speaker: John Bohannon, Correspondent, Science Ever wonder what science journalists do all day? In this talk, I'm going to give you the stories behind the stories I worked on last week: Many surveys, about one in five, may contain fraudulent data Fight over author pseudonyms could flare again Even on eBay, women get paid less for their labor Science journalism is how people learn about your research and about you. When we journalists do our job well, the public gets informed efficiently and accurately. When we fall asleep at the wheel, millions of people start believing that vaccines are best avoided, that climate change is a fantasy, or that chocolate causes weight loss. (Wait, that last one was me!) One of these days you're going to get a call from a science journalist. In this talk, I will offer three easy tips on how to manipulate the journalist into doing the right thing, or at least getting the science less wrong. Also, I will be giving a sneak preview at a data-driven story due to come out in Science later this month. It's a doozy.

The first time we hear about scientific developments or breakthroughs is frequently through the press. Skilled science journalists are in tune with the twists and turns of scientific discovery and able to translate that into universally understandable words within hours: they are right at the front line of science communication. In this short film, veteran science journalist, Tim Radford, tells us the 'three great stories in science' and explains what is, and is not, important when reporting science to the masses. Filmed at the Guardian Print Centre, London. A film by Barry J Gibb.

Science journalism enhances public understanding of science. But it also can reveal the connection between science and social justice, as well as challenge public assumptions about who creates knowledge. Smith was co-executive producer of the award-winning 2008 PBS series “Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick.” He shared a 2017 AAAS Kavli award for the NOVA program, “Poisoned Water,” a disturbing, behind-the-headlines look at the water crisis in Flint, Michigan and its human cost. In 2007 Smith received the AAAS award for “Forgotten Genius,” the story of Percy Julian, the grandson of Alabama slaves who overcame racial discrimination to become one of the leading chemists of the 20th century.
