- events/archive December 14, 2005 Nanotechnology and the Media: Realities and Risk Nanotechnology is in the marketplace—in cars, computer chips and cosmetics. It’s featured in popular films and sci-fi books. It’s trendy with venture capitalists, and it’s at the heart of major industry and university research centers. But how is nanotechnology covered in the media? Does the press propagate nano-hype? Do journalists focus more on nano’s risks than its benefits? Is the content and quality of U.S. reporting on nanotech similar to reporting abroad? video
