What she’s saying: “I think the media is very slicey and dicey about how they put sentences together in order to create headlines. We know, for millennials and other studies, that some people may only read the headlines and if there’s not a graphic, they’re not going to look any further than that,” Birx said on Saturday.
“We have to be responsible about our headlines. I think often the reporting may be accurate in paragraph three, four, and five, but I’m not sure how many people actually get to three, four and five. And I think the responsibility that the press has is to really ensure that the headlines reflect the science and data that is in their piece itself,” she said.
