From the rhetoric of science to scientific journalism
Journalism and science are forced into unavoidable coexistence, despite the mistrust that the scientific sphere has shown towards journalism, related to its historical wariness towards rhetoric. In fact, scientific discontent is not unfounded, faced with scarcely specialized coverage, secondary sources, rudimentary texts and genders, agenda marginalization, etc. However, other misgivings are the result of misunderstanding journalism, for which the pedagogical function is subsidiary to the informative function. Journalism is not a platform for scientific debate, but an activity that has its own logic, language and hierarchical criteria. Cooperation is, above all, necessary – journalism adds to the social value of scientific activity, it contributes visibility and even attracts resources – and collaboration is advisable in order to stimulate a more competent scientific journalism.
