Not actually, just wanted to get your attention. We hate fake news, especially when it is science that is being questioned. It is Science Literacy week so we invited Neill Fitzpatrick, assistant professor in Journalism and Communications at MacEwan University, to talk about the role of the news and social media in sharing the latest science. Check out this interview where Neill sat down with TELUS World of Science - Edmonton's Staff Scientist Cate to dive into fake news surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenge journalists face communicating science, and tips you can use to become a better consumer of the news.
