Orwellian prize for journalistic misrepresentation
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
I am offering a prize each year for an article in an English-language national newspaper that has the most inaccurate report of a piece of academic work.
The article must purport to report results of academic research, and judgement will be based on a points scoring system, as follows:
- Factual error in the title: 3 points
- Factual error in a subtitle: 2 points
- Factual error in the body of the article: 1 point
