Reflections on Science and the Media.
Goodfield, June
Examined in this book are four recent, highly publicized science stories: Rorvik's "clone," thalidomide, lab standards for recombinant DNA research, and the case of the painted laboratory mice. Inquiries into the failure of scientists and journalists to report scientific research accurately to the public, the importance of these issues, and the need for the two professions to recognize some specific obligations to the public are presented.
