Abstract [en]

In popular science and technology writing, “boosterism” is prominent. Writers overwhelminglydescribe science and technology in enthusiastic terms, thereby promoting the deficitor Public Appreciation of Science and Technology model (PAST). A crucial aspect ofthe PAST model is its pro-innovation bias: writers enroll chaperones in the texts, such asspokespersons, users, celebrities, witnesses, experts, and authorities, to support their claims.Both “boosterism” and pro-innovation bias constrain the public’s critical understanding ofscience and technology. This study includes a detailed exploration of pro-innovation bias inthe popularization of the Internet in the Norwegian press and how journalists use chaperonesto support their claims. The author demonstrates that, in popularizing the Internet, proinnovationbias manifests several other biases, such as individual-praise, pro-technology,individual-blame, technology-blame, and source biases
