Illiteracy of the Media…

Listening to CBC Radio’s “The Current” this morning, I learned of these two websites: PR Watch and Source Watch. New York Times writer Andrew Revkin, author of “The North Pole Was Here”, was underlining the fact that the media is scientifically illiterate, and often generally illiterate about other things that they report on. Definitely not “new news”, but very refreshing to hear it being discussed by the media! You can listen to this story by clicking on the Current link above and scrolling down to the “Listen to The Current: Part 2” link on the CBC page.

CBC — Canada’s public broadcasting company — is definitely one of my favourite things!
