Science and the media

Science and the media don't seem to go hand in hand at the moment. The more time I spend studying and the more I understand, the more I realise just how much science is completely and utterly misrepresented in the media. A fabulous example (as with many in his blog) comes from Ben Goldacre of "Badscience" fame. I thought journalism and reporting were supposed to represent both sides of the story, a fair and unbiased account. Obviously not.
