By the way, on press, are more elaborate, and the tendency is to give more coverage to scientific news, for reasons we’ll argüe throughout this paper. It’s important fact to assess the construction process of science journalism media and the process of recontextualization of speech, once stories will be moved from the scientific press to the media. In this article we propose a taxonomy of forms of broadcast scientific facts through the media. After analyzing television news stories for a decade, the classification of diffusion models is as follows: a) science as culture; b) science as a public service; c) science as spectacle; d) science as an adornment; e) science and controversy; f) science fiction.
