The MIT Energy Initiative and Knight Science Journalism Fellowship Program convene four journalists to tell the behind-the-scenes story on how energy stories get told — and spun. Join an experienced and talented panel from across the media spectrum for an inside look at the forces that shape media on energy and practical insights on how scientists can improve the way that their research is conveyed to a public that is under daily information bombardment.
The Panel: Philip J. Hilts, Director, Knight Science Journalism Fellowship Program Alister Doyle, Reuters environment correspondent Hepeng Jia, Founder, Science News Magazine Eli Kintisch, policy reporter, Science Joyce Murdoch, former managing editor, the National Journal
