This feed is mostly personal interest; it's NOT my professional writing. There's tech here, yes, but also lots of general science and some politics and weird humor thrown in.

How can Fox do this?


There is no "ongoing debate."

The guy who "discovered" the link has been thoroughly proven a fraud. He was stripped of his medical license, and his paper formally retracted!  (e.g.http://www.google.com/search?&q=vaccine+autism+fraud)

But it not Fox's interest to present a balanced view. Its interest lies in generating controversy where there is none. One way to do that is to encourage disbelief in rationalism. A misinformed, irrational, inflamed public is much, much easier to influence.

Fox sucks.
