Journalist Wall Of Shame

Some of the reporting is awfully sensationalist and fear mongering, playing on people’s fears to get a quick, cheap story.

There’s a good list of some of the worst examples on the Journalist Wall of Shame. Really quite shocking what’s being said, which is a real shame because it just feeds on people’s misunderstanding of all things Nuclear and will distort the Nuclear debate for years.

In addition, this is a nice example of Crowdsourcing to hold “professional” media to account, and an interesting use of Google Docs to allow multiple collaborators produce and update a single document (see second half of the page).

Update: The guy who started it has explained his reasons with a link to a list of good Journalism on the subject.
