One for the sceptics

Posted by Ed on November 26, 2005

Are you tired of media distortions, exaggerations and general misunderstandings about science, as I am? Then, you’ll love this one. Bad Science is Ben Goldacre’s Guardian column keeping a watch for all the misinformation the media put out there in their quest to out-sensationalise each other to the top of the sales rankings.

All your favourite scare stories are covered, from MMR to MRSA to atomic tomatoes. And, of course, the Daily Mail deservedly takes a lot of flak.
