On the Media: The Appliance of Science – 13th January 2010.

by HannahB 12. January 2010 14:37

 

The Frontline Club is a media club in central London that champion’s independent journalism http://frontlineclub.com/ . On the 13th January at 7pm they are planning a discussion on the leaking of the notorious ‘Climategate’ emails just before the Copenhagen global warming summit, the resignation of Professor David Nutt as chairman of the government’s drugs advisory panel: two events that demonstrate how politicised science has become.

The event will start at 7pm and usually lasts 1.5 - to 2 hours. Speakers include Ben Goldacre and David Shukman, who will be joined by scientists and science journalists.  The aim is to discuss the media's relationship to science and the science community. Looking at issues of good/bad journalism in relation to science, also the interplay of science, politics and the extent to which journalists are representing the debate.
