Journalist Exposes Those Who Manipulate Science on Behalf of Special Interests

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--When scientific studies are released, most laypeople take the word of the “experts” for granted and assume that the supporting data is legitimate. But one science reporter discovered evidence that suggests there is an entire industry built around spinning science for the purpose of confusing the public while benefiting Big Business. In the 11th installment of Thirteen/WNET New York’s innovative weekly series, AIR: AMERICA’S INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS, an investigative reporter takes on the practice of tailoring and manipulating research to fit the needs of industry groups. Narrated by award-winning broadcast journalist Sylvia Chase, Science Fiction premieres Friday, November 10 at 10 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).
