Recently we’ve seen the media fail on some skeptical issues, from the misinformation about the safety of the H1N1 vaccine to the credulous reporting of the assisted communication of a comatose Belgian man. With many news outlets closing their science departments, this could get worse. As active skeptics, we need to challenge these stories with a dose of reality.
Beginning next Sunday, we’re starting a weekly post of our picks of the best and worst examples of Canadian skepticism and critical thinking in the news media. We need your help to find them. Whether it’s a story from a national news outlet, or your local paper, we want to know where the skeptical heroes and skeptical zeroes are. Send your links to firstname.lastname@example.org
If your link is chosen, you will receive all the fame and paparazzi attention that comes along with having your name mentioned on this blog.
