how journalism helps science

From my article in today's Media Guardian:

In his book, 'The Devil's Chaplain', Prof Richard Dawkins says science journalism is "too important to be left to journalists." With sentiments like these, one might imagine that a scientific institution would never willingly open its doors to a team of reporters, much less invite them to breakfast. Why then, will the Today Programme be broadcasting live from the Royal Society this Thursday? Is it possible that even scientists are beginning to recognize that journalism is important, not just for society, but for science too?
