Research the (News) Headlines
Recently I blogged about my newsclipping habit (read, clip, then file and forget).
But today I learned about a serious blog where researchers read news stories and then actually think and write about them. The blog is run by the " Young Academy of Scotland ", a part of the Royal Society of Edinburgh .
The URL sums up what the blog contributors do:
In their own words:
"Research the Headlines addresses the way in which research is discussed and portrayed in the media. Each post will take recent media coverage of a piece of research as a starting point, and will allow readers to get to a better understanding of what was really done, and what it might mean for them, from an expert but independent position...."

These guys must be professional newsclipping addicts. They can certainly justify their habits better than I can mine.
