After completing my PhD in medicinal chemistry I went straight into sci comm. Biggest mistake I ever made. Sensationalism sells and we are encouraged to twist data to fit a narrative. Ethically didn't sit right with me so I went back into the laboratory. It is true that writers are asked to write outside their area of expertise, which does mean errors are many. Medical advertising is so much worse. Bending clinical data enough to sell a drug whilst staying within the ABPI. It is so unethical. I hated writing advertising copy for one client knowing their drug wasn't as good as a competitor. I felt like I was doing harm writing stuff for sales reps to convince doctors to change their prescribing habits knowing that this could cause harm to patients who might not be getting an optimal treatment.

And maybe pass it on the American Medical Association and whatever passes for an Advertising Standards body.

Ok maybe more of a negative connotation then as it goes beyond the quote itself. “Yay science” generally implies its “cheerleaders” are missing the point of everything science stands for.
