Ben Coomber Radio – Research Media Spinning: How bad is it? (Episode #412)


 📰This is quite a short Ben Coomber radio episode, but it covers a topic I think is really important to discuss: the difference between research findings and news headlines.
 📰In this episode co-host Tom Bainbridge does a solo show which highlights how the media spin research findings to make them more headline worthy.
📰Not only is this misleading, it confuses the general public as messages often contradict each other.
📰I think it’s important for everyone to understand this discrepancy so they can read headlines with a healthy amount of  cynicism.
Take a listen .
