A Weblog monitoring coverage of environmental issues and science in the UK media. By Professor Emeritus Philip Stott. The aim is to assess whether a subject is being fairly covered by press, radio, and television. Above all, the Weblog will focus on science, but not just on poor science. It will also bring to public notice good science that is being ignored because it may be politically inconvenient.

The Indy is much wool(l)ier than The Groaniad.....

Having just wiped the floor with The Times by adopting unexpected caution in its environmental headlines (see blog below), the normally florid Groaniad now downs The Independent (a considerably easier opponent, of course):

'Experts discover first signs of BSE in sheep' (The Independent, April 8);
'Sheep found with BSE-like disease' (The Guardian, April 8).

Shear amazement.

Philip, marvelling at The New Guardian.
