Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: Earth & Sky, also known as EarthSky (the still-active website), was a daily radio series that presented information about science and nature. Earth & Sky was broadcast on NPR from 1991 to 2013 and then focused on web and social media. The information on Earth & Sky comes directly from scientists. The journalists who produced the Earth & Sky radio program and continue to produce the web site speak to several scientists each day, dozens each week and hundreds each year. Overall, this a highly factual soft science website. (D. Van Zandt 12/31/2017)
