People who rely on social media for information were more likely to be misinformed about vaccines than those who rely on traditional media, according to new research by the Annenberg Public Policy Center.
A new publication from APPC's Annenberg Science Media Monitor analyzes how the news media have presented different narratives about science, from discovery to retractions, from identifying problems in research to "problem explored": how science seeks solutions or is self-correcting.
In a series of articles, FactCheck.org debunked coronavirus myths about the novel coronavirus that have spread on social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter.

In its fourth report, the Annenberg Science Media Monitor focuses on media reports about crisis and self-correction in science and efforts to address them.
