Science and the Media

Science and the Media (PDF)
Source: American Academy of Arts & Sciences

This publication is part of the American Academy’s project on The Media in Society. The project also produced two online publications—Media, Business, and the Economy and The Future of News—that are available on the Academy’s website. The Media in Society project was supported by a generous grant from the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands. We are grateful to the Foundation for its support and to its director, Kathleen Hall Jamieson, for her con- tinued interest and advice.

The essays that appear in this volume were developed at a series of workshops organized by the American Academy in Cambridge and in Washington, D.C.
The Academy thanks especially Donald Kennedy (Stanford University) and Geneva Overholser (University of Southern California), cochairs of the working group on Science, Technology, and the Media, for their guidance and for serving as the editors of this publication. We are grateful also to all the authors and workshop participants, including: Alan Alda (New York City); Robert Bazell (NBC News); Pablo Boczkowski (Northwestern University); Rick E. Borchelt (U.S. Department of Agriculture); Thomas Cline (University of California, Berkeley); K. C. Cole (University of Southern California); Cornelia Dean (formerly The New York Times); Sean Eddy (Howard Hughes Medical Institute); Harvey Fineberg (Institute of Medicine of the National Academies); Lynne T. Friedmann (Friedmann Communications); Alfred Hermida (University of British Columbia Graduate School of Journalism); Earle Holland (Ohio State University); Thomas Lovejoy (H. John Heinz III Center for Science, Economics, and the Environment); Jon D.
