Science, Money and Politics in Journalism

a quote from journalist Daniel Greenberg in his 2001 book, Science, Money and Politics:

"The press, on its own, if it chooses, can make the transition from cheerleaders of science to independent observers. The journalistic trumpeting of medical cures, even though accompanied by sober cautions against optimism, deserves to be severely throttled back in recognition of an unfortunate reality: though news is sold around the clock, major advances in medicine come along infrequently."
