UKCSJ Business as Usual?

Business as Usual?

What does recent research say about science journalism in the UK, is it business as usual or have a new breed of science journalists established a ‘new science journalism’ in the blogosphere? Who is right in the heated debate over whether bloggers are journalists and has the distinction between blogging and journalism become a meaningless and semantic debate in the internet age? Do the changes in science reporting herald a new golden age for accuracy or the triumph of bad science? 

Speakers:
