John Oliver discusses how and why media outlets so often report untrue or incomplete information as science. You can find this video on YouTube.

Even though this characteristically witty reflection by John Oliver reduced us to hearty rolling-on-the-floor laughter it actually contains some important messages. In addition to poking fun at the way in which research is often reported by the tabloid media it does highlight the degree to which researchers need to be careful when reporting the outcomes of research, the need to support/recognise replication work, and why we all need to be wary of ‘news headline’ reporting of science.
