IANS readings chapter 9:

"CLAIMS THE SOUND TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, HEADLINES THAT PROMISE A QUICK FIX, DIRE WARNINGS OF DANGER ABOUT A SINGLE PRODUCT OR REGIMEN, SIMPLISTIC CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM A COMPLEX STUDY," and "ADVICE BASED ON STUDIES PUBLISHED WITHOUT PEER REVIEW!"(148)

Yep, it is ironic when the researchers own stock in the company manufacturing the vaccine they developed. Financial and ideological motives in news writing are a NO. Conflict of intrest, it sends off a big red flag. Our job is not to get publicity for thigs we like or are involved in; if we wanted that maybe we would be salesmen or public speakers. Just deliver the important, non-biased information and get on with it already.

Chapter 10:

I you keep following the dark, dreary road you might not find bambie's meadow; maybe you should have explored the other alternatives...yeah, let's stop ignoring the things we don't like because everyone deserves to know the whole truth. Let's not bird pick it; explore every possible outcome, explanation and path. It gets redundant when everyone keeps talking about the same thing.

You brought up a good point about conflict of interest. Like when researchers write about their own discovery or whatever they tend to be bias. This is a conflict of interest. I aso agree that when a story is written they dont tell the whole story, or the whole truth as you put it which is another good point.
