What is more important: making what people want to watch, or telling truthful and factual science? It seems that not all the big science channels think the same on this subject. I ask the question, I present some recent shows on TV, and I want to know what you think? Where do you draw the line and what is too far? Is there a solution? The problem has been on my mind for awhile and I don’t know if there is even an answer. The problem either lies with the consumer or it lies with the producers/networks. Maybe it’s really a problem with the way we get ratings. I don’t know.
