Science presented in the media

Having just finished a paper on how the media presents scientific findings, I thought I would share it with the world. Basically, this is an anecdotal investigation which focuses on an article by John Cloud that can be found in the TIME Magazine issue from 28 January 2008. In case you don’t have access to this particular issue, here’s a direct link to the article itself:,9171,1704660,00.html

As I am an APA freak, the paper adheres to all of their standards. Reluctantly, I even made sure that the paper had the 1-inch margins (20 mm is a much nicer utilisation of space), and used the dreadfully ugly Times New Roman font (which is definitely a licensing issue in GNU/Linux anyway). Without further adieu, here’s the link to the paper. As always, it is a PDF, which requires the use of Adobe Reader (which can be obtained by clicking the link in the right-hand bar of the Z-Issue). Please right-click and hit “save-as” as a security precaution and to save on bandwidth for multiple readings. If you wish to use any content from this paper, please contact me at:

EDIT: I changed a couple grammatical errors and tense errors in the paper, and re-uploaded.
