With newspapers and cable news shows slashing their science reporting budgets, how can the public get accurate science and technology news? In this hour, live from the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Diego, we'll talk about communicating science in all its forms. We'll try to help you figure out where to get your science news fix -- without the spin. We'll also look at the role of websites and podcasts -- are they helping to fill the science news void? And when anyone with a keyboard can post a story, who's vetting the reporting?
Plus, looking to spice up your screen play with a little string theory? Want to make sure the math in your movie adds up? The National Academy's Science and Entertainment Exchange can help. It's a service that links Hollywood with scientists, so that the science on the screen is sound.
