Adéu a Nihil Obstat | Hola a The Catalan Analyst

Després de 13 anys d'escriure en aquest bloc pràcticament sense interrumpció, avui el dono per clausurat. Això no vol dir que m'hagi jubilat de la xarxa, sinó que he passat el relleu a un altra bloc que segueix la mateixa línia del Nihil Obstat. Es tracta del bloc The Catalan Analyst i del compte de Twitter del mateix nom: @CatalanAnalyst Us recomano que els seguiu.

Moltes gràcies a tots per haver-me seguit amb tanta fidelitat durant tots aquests anys.

La BBC revisarà la imparcialitat de la secció d'informació científica

La BBC ha decidit procedir a una revisió completa de la seva àrea de Ciència arran les crítiques rebudes per l'esviaxament de les informacions relatives a l'esclafament global, entre altres. 
The BBC Trust has today announced that it will carry out a review to assess the accuracy and impartiality of the BBC's coverage of science.

It will be the latest in a series of reviews that assess impartiality in specific areas of BBC output.

It is a key priority for the Trust that the BBC covers potentially controversial subjects with due impartiality, as required by the Royal Charter and Agreement.

Richard Tait, BBC Trustee and Chair of the Trust's Editorial Standards Committee (ESC), said:

"Science is an area of great importance to licence fee payers, which provokes strong reaction and covers some of the most sensitive editorial issues the BBC faces.

"Heated debate in recent years around topics like climate change, GM crops and the MMR vaccine reflects this, and BBC reporting has to steer a course through these controversial issues while remaining impartial.

"The BBC has a well-earned reputation for the quality of its science reporting, but it is also important that we look at it afresh to ensure that it is adhering to the very high standards that licence fee payers expect."
