Spin, Spinwatch

Nick Jones– former BBC Parliamentary correspondent and recent Coventry Conversations speaker- has posted the article which formed the backbone of his Coventry talk.
The article Against an avalanche of negative publicity Gordon Brown should opt for transparency is available from http://www.nicholasjones.org.uk/

The article is available as a podcast from Coventry Conversations Podcast archive.

Nick also blogs for the Spinwatch website
http://www.spinwatch.org
which monitors public relations, propaganda and lobbying.
Much of their coverage on science, food, the pharmaceutical industry and climate change is relevant to how research- sometimes very bad research- is used to influence public opinion and policy.
