The formation of political science was, on both sides of the Atlantic, a project intended to wield the authority of science.
Science, argued the American Jesse Macy, was a method of communal discipline that banished "all liars, blunderers, and all who had a disposition to believe a false report." Finally, method was an important marker of science.
Both in the universities, where political science had to compete with the other new social sciences to gain legitimacy, and in the public arena where their prescriptions had to compete with myriad political voices, objectivity was the clearest warrant of scientific expertise and professionalism.

 Chapter I - The Founding of Science Service - Part IV, Masters Thesis of David Rhees, 1979   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Science Service was the product of the fortuitous conjunction of two separate proposals for popularizing science, one from a group of scientists in Washington, D.C., and the other from wealthy newspaper publisher E. Scripps in California.
Thus, for Scripps, science was the guardian of the democratic way of life, and he believed, with William Ritter, that its "spirit" and "mental attitude" must be impressed upon the common man in order to guarantee domestic and international [sic] tranquillity.
Science Service was this organization, the expression of E. Scripps' fears for the fate of democracy, his faith in the innate educability of the masses, and his belief that science was the key to progress.
