Making up your science?

"Do good and talk about it" is an old saying. This also applies to science as a guarantor of facts and reason, and even more so in times of new and social media. In the marketplace of opinions, however, science must also shout loud enough. If everyone can be sender and receiver, how can pseudoscience and "fake news" be prevented?
Are laboratories and universities just echo chambers of a different kind? How to deal with scandalization, staging, and personalization?
