Where did all the science journalism go?

Check out this great two part episode of Star Talk Radio where Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews science journalist Miles O’Brien (PBS News Hour) about CNN firing its science reporting staff and the future of science reporting. Also featured on the episode is Bill Nye the Science Guy and Elise Andrew (I F***ing Love Science) weighing in on points made by Miles.

It’s an eye opening interview on the business of network news and how science doesn’t fit into the picture.
