New guidelines could change the way the government informs the public about science. Some worry the new rules may bias what should be unbiased scientific information. Others see them as a way to make sure that government policies are rooted in sound research. In this hour, Joe Palca and guests look at how the government decides what should be considered good science.

*Professor and department head, Department of Engineering and Public Policy
*Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering and the H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management, Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Penn.
