@David Coulter brought up an interesting point:
So I was wondering, for the people who are not anonymous, would it be helpful to have a banner under the user profile, saying what their areas of expertise are? Just a simple thing like "Meteorologist", "Pilot", "Geologist", etc. Like:This has become the problem. Stories that quote press releases without any verification. I hope the BBC can work on that; CNN, Sky, Fox, etc certainly don't have an educated science staff to do the job. The problem is that they can't afford a team of scientists that can vet stories. Hopefully metabunk will become a recognized source for the media, but participants need to post their full credentials to be taken seriously (see my profile, my Linkedin info is disclosed).
