Rather disappointing coverage imo, clearly pandering to stereotypes. I wonder if Autism Speaks had anything to do with this :roll:

The Daily Record is a tabloid. Not as bad as the batshit crazy Daily Mail, who think everything causes cancer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yzbxwxWUz0 but nonetheless their journalism is directed entirely towards gathering views through being 'shocking' and generally make up half of their stories. Don't even bother with treating a tabloid as legitimate news; in the UK, just stick with the BBC.

I don't know. I pretty much only watch TV for MLP and Adventure Time.

In the UK, stick with the Guardian, University of Manchester News, and ResponseSource -
