MIT’s School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (SHASS) recently threw three questions at Seth Mnookin, associate director of the school’s graduate program in science writing. All three answers are fantastic.
To the query “… What can typical readers do to ensure the information they get is accurate?”, Mnookin replies:
“There are so many sources of information out there, and it’s important to remember they’re not all equally reliable. Just because someone has a slick YouTube channel with good lighting doesn’t mean they’re reputable.”
