That theme, albeit for more general topics, was also addressed (with 
strong emphasis) in a recent ABC radio 702 interview: Deb Cameron with 
John Menadue.

IMHO, long overdue and well worth a listen.

Just a comment on the Ed Young article ... The article - and comment 
responses - seem to miss (or avoid?) talking about "science PR 
masquerading as research and analysis".
