David Cohen – NBR column: Science reporters in the dark

A column by National Business Review media commentator David Cohen on the media’s coverage of autism and MeNZB.

An excerpt:

“Interesting. Many news outlets, presumably motivated by an ideological distrust of the pharmaceutical business coupled with a fondness for dramatic conspiracy theories, have tended to make much of this supposed autism/vaccination association, as much so as local media going overboard – for much the same reasons – in warning of the ‘risks’ associated with our own meningococcal B immunisation campaign.”
