Science & Journalism in the Age of "Fake News"
Published October 02, 2018
How can the media convey the enormous potential of scientific discovery, without descending into oversimplification or hyperbole? What are the respective responsibilities of scientists and journalists in this era of denialism and “fake news”?
These questions and more were debated during a lively panel discussion at the Academy featuring Nsikan Akpan from PBS NewsHour, Amanda Aronczyk of WNYC, David Freeman of NBCNews.com, and Amy Marcus from The Wall Street Journal, moderated by Jay Flynn, Managing Director of Research Publishing at Wiley. And because the panel was part of our 200th Annual Meeting, we invited and got lots of response from our audience throughout.
