Why oh Why Can’t We Have a Better Press Corps? (Autism Edition)

According to the AP:

The court is being asked to decide whether there is a link between autism and childhood vaccines.

The court doesn’t decide if there is a link or not. If there is a link and the court rules there isn’t, that doesn’t mean that the existing link suddenly disappears. If there is no link and the court rules that there is, autism won’t suddenly be transmitted via vaccines. The court is being asked to examine the evidence and come to a conclusion the best that it can.

I'm watching the proceedings with interest. Whatever the outcome the debate will continue.
