Letter: Science giants do a good job: we're hooked and keen to learn

Science coverage in the media is better than it has ever been, and part of the reason is the increasing willingness of research scientists to explain their work to non-scientists. If you want a diversity of voices, then you have to want a diversity of opinion. Is Tudge saying that he, and other science journalists, have an unerring eye for the truth? Would he want to replace the fictitious cabal of scientists with a real cabal of hacks?
