Simon Baron-Cohen, a prominent autism researcher, writes in the New Scientist about his research being misrepresented by a newspaper:
So how did The Guardian get it so wrong? First, because the headline writers went beyond the data to create a simple, bite-size but inaccurate message. Second, because they fused two issues that should have been kept separate: the study itself, on prenatal hormonal effects in children developing typically; and the issue of autism screening.
