Science Friction: A Documentary That Reveals The Truth About Misquoting Science Experts In TV Docs

I’ve always wanted to be knowledgeable enough about something to be asked to give my opinion on it in a documentary or TV series. But I’ve never thought about what I would do if the people recording the interview took my words and twisted them to suit their off-subject desires. The upcoming documentary, Science Friction, dives into this subject with gusto. Read on for more info.

Finally, a documentary about scientists who get misrepresented by the media.

Those TV documentaries you see, and the science experts they feature? Did you know that producers often edit them out of context, and twist their words, to make it seem like they promoted some pop sensationalism instead of the real facts?

Science Friction exposes this practice and gives the scientists a chance to clear the record. The film was financed by private grants and donations.

Skeptoid Media is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit. Science Friction is directed by Emery Emery (The Aristocrats, Gambler’s Ballad) and executive produced by Brian Dunning (Principles of Curiosity).
