Abstract

This study examines problematic dissemination of science news, examining the promotion of two journal articles in light of Latour's model "The Circulatory System of Scientific Facts." Subsequent distortions in the mass media amplified rhetorical directions already suggested by press releases, researcher interviews and the discussion sections in the journal articles.
