On 11 January 2012, Dr. Jonathan Latham, Executive Director of the Bioscience Resource Project, gave a public talk in Ithaca, NY entitled: What’s Wrong with the Science Media? The talk began with the premise that the science media serves as a vital and trusted source of information. Dr. Latham then posed a series of questions: Does the science media truly operate in the public interest? Is it fair, unbiased and independent? Or is it manipulating, spinning and misreporting key findings about the environment, food and health?

Quote of the day
The thinkers of the Enlightenment saw themselves as reviving paganism, but they lacked the pagan sense of the dangers of hubris. With few exceptions, these savants were actually neo-Christians, missionaries of a new gospel more fantastical than anything in the creed they imagined they had abandoned. Their belief in progress was only the Christian doctrine of providence emptied of transcendence and mystery.- John Gray, 'Heresies 2004 against progress and other illusions'
