I threw together a blog post about a seemingly p-hacked breastfeeding study in the news today. Is technical disclosure in the journal article enough when you are issuing press releases without it?
I am very interested in press release policies in general, for the reason your mentioning and for others (I find that about half the press releases I read don't even cite the paper being discussed (!) so there is a substantial obstacle to overcome just to find the details of the study). If anyone knows of discussions on this topic, I'd be grateful if you'd help me find them.
