I’m really happy the media is starting to highlight the importance of science and studies, and how the media is often misrepresenting research. Whether you like his style or not, John Oliver brings some solid points to the table, points which we don’t consider nearly enough.
Most science reporting is shallow at the very least, and this is one of the reasons I got into science journalism. Though ZME Science is just an extremely small part of the struggle to “keep science real”, I’m glad to be a part of it, and I’m glad to have John Oliver by my side.
As always, if you see us making any reporting mistakes or exaggerations, please signal them out to us in the comment section.
