News I, and perhaps you, can use

In my previous life as a reporter, I frequently had to write a news article about a scientific finding (usually, though not always, medical in nature). I learned a lot of hard lessons the hard way in so doing, and they served me so well that I have thought from time to time about posting a tutorial for other journalists on how to handle this routine but fraught journalistic task.

However, the Guardian has already done so, so I’m happy to link to theirs. The comments also are enlightening.
