B - Science journalism

Watts S. Society needs more than wonder to respect science. Nature 2014;508(7495):151
(doi:10.1038/508151a)

According to the author, there is a fundamental difference between science communication and science journalism: researchers are well placed to explain concepts, but journalists will bring the critical scrutiny needed to integrate science in society. Science journalism should weigh up the values and vices of science. A journalist needs to be persistent and brave enough to find out things that people don't want the world to know.
