Shoddy stories on autism, fertility treatments

Two more weak stories reviewed on

• NBC Today show: Can you “recover” from autism?

Our review:
This story dangles hope of recovery in front of parents of children diagnosed with autism. Indeed, the word “hope” is invoked four times. However, the story provides no evidence to back up this hope.

• NY Daily News: Have a baby at new low, low price, says fertility doctor

Our review:
Is cheap really the whole story? This piece focuses on an infertility or subfertility treatment and promotes one doctor’s clinic in so doing. But cost, evidence, data are all weak points.
