Troublemaker’s Fringe, tomorrow, after the day job

If you’re in London Town Wednesday evening, don’t forget to come along to the Troublemaker’s Fringe, where we’ll be tackling the problems of science journalism and discussing how misleading, dangerous and inaccurate stories keep making the headlines.

Hilariously, we’ve already been slagged off by Steve Connor of The Independent who deals out some scorching criticism, calls us arrogant, and defends the accuracy of the mainstream media by saying:

The medics met in a pub in London last night to explain why the “mainstream media’s science coverage is broken, misleading, dangerous, lazy, venal and silly”.

Except we’re meeting tomorrow night, and there’s only one medic.

Ugh! Feel the heat!

    Hope you all have a good time. It would be nice to get accurate media coverage of the event, but that’s kind of the point, isn’t it?
