Cardiff University has recently published new research into Science Journalism in the UK.

In summary it says that science journalism is widely criticised because it is not placed into context. Journalists are having to work for longer, produce more copy, and so have less time to write stories.

All this happens at the same time as the industry suffers because of the recession, which has resulted in wide spread job cuts.
