An Online Campaign Demands Quality Journalism from La Vanguardia

Categories: Spain, Citizen Media, Media & Journalism, Science

The Catalan Association for Scientific Communication [1], the Spanish Association of Scientific Communication [2] and the Society for the Progression of Critical Thinking [3] have started an Internet campaign [4] via online petition platform Change.org [5] asking for scientific accuracy in La Vanguardia [6], one of the widest circulated [7] Catalan newspapers and part of the Grupo Godó. So far they have collected 826 signatures. The petition, which is in the form of a letter addressed to the editor of La Vanguardia Josep Rovirosa [8], demands “not only respect for science but above all quality journalism, whether scientific, specialised or of a general nature” [all links lead to Catalan speaking pages].
