How science journalism is broken and how can we all fix it
Here’s a problem worth pondering: imagine you publish a Medium post one night (after hundreds of laborious edits) to wake up the next morning and find at least 3 publishers, including Medium itself, running it as a story of theirs, with very minimal [cr]edits to your original, heavily edited text, if any.
Some publishers, however, may try to make your title more clickbait at any cost of truth and effort.
But that sounds great, you may think — it’s publicity and validation!
While it may indeed be, it’s actually what Churnalism is.
