We are bombarded by news releases, scientific studies and an evolving hierarchy of sources. How do you sort through what is real, what is noise and what is flat-out deception?
Poynter will host a free one-day workshop to discuss the key challenges of reporting the facts about science at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 17.
During this special daylong event we will explore how journalists can combat misinformation and cover evolving or contradictory findings without reducing trust in the scientific method. We’ll also look at the evolving role of scientific reporting in public policy.
