accuracy, biotechnology, coverage, ethical issues, information issues, mass media, reporting, research communication, scientific communication, genetic engineering, bias
Notes:
"emerging data suggest that, in some circumstances, the media reporting of science is surprisingly accurate and portrays a message created by the scientific community. As such, there are reasons to believe that the hyping of research might be part of a more systemic problem associated with the increasingly commercial nature of the research environment."
