Don't trust those scientists, trust blogs!


OTTAWA -- A newly released American study suggests the public often rejects the opinions of scientific experts.

The public tends not to trust scientists, says research from California - but there's a twist. People are mainly reluctant to believe good news, it turns out - such as the message that a flu vaccine is safe. But the public is more likely to trust the researchers who frighten with bad news.

I always give bad news!
