    “…science is a process that never ends.”
    “…find a voice to help you through the weeds, or walk away.”
    “…we have this implicit bias in journalism toward what’s new and not what’s true.”Important segment this week from On The Media about the J&J pause, science, and how it’s reported. It speaks to media literacy, as well as to the sensationalism of the news. -dayle
