SALI 104 - Sessio 1 Cherry picking: Tiedon valikoiva käyttö

Erilaisten mielipiteiden ja väitteiden esittäminen tietoverkkojen kautta on helppoa ja nopeaa. Tutkimustuloksia, faktaa, löytyy tukemaan lähes jokaista väitettä. ”Cherry picking” on tutkimustulosten valikoivaa käyttöä, jolloin perusteluina käytetään vain se osa tietoa, joka tukee omaa argumenttia. Poimitaanko Suomessa rusinat pullasta? Mitkä ovat luotettavan tiedon tuntomerkit? Löytyykö tutkimustieto helposti ja nopeasti, silloin kun sitä tarvitaan?

Keskusteluun johdattavat kansanedustaja Sanna Lauslahti (Tutkas), lääketieteen etiikan dosentti, yliopistonlehtori Pekka Louhiala (Helsingin yliopisto, Hjelt-instituutti, TENK) ja LKT, pääsihteeri emeritus Harri Vertio (Suomen Syöpäyhdistys). Keskustelun juontaa ja toimittajanäkökulman tarjoaa Antti Blåfield.
