Should science journalists take sides? – Thursday 23 September 7.00pm
The Royal Institution is running an evening event on Thursday 23rd September, exploring neutrality in scientific reporting by the media.
Guest curator Mark Henderson (Science Editor of The Times) leads an expert panel who will debate the key issue of journalistic neutrality in science. What should journalists do when one side of an argument has more scientific credibility and support than another? And to what extent do they have a responsibility to weigh up competing opinions, to decide whether some are more equal than others?
