Christie Silk reports the World Editor’s Forum’s editorsweblog.org that Lord Drayson, U.K. minister for science and innovation, told the World Conference of Science Journalists in London that the work of British health and science journalists “is of a very high standard,” provided journalists have access to scientists and are “centre stage.” According to Drayson, the work of such journalists provides an essential public service and helps the public make informed decisions.
