So "journalist" Larry King, friend of quacks, frauds, and antiscience peddlars everywhere, had Jenny McCarthy on his program the other day, and let her rant on about vaccines, autism, and loads of nonsense. I don't have time (or the will power) to go through what she said step-by-step, by happily David Gorski did. He even has video of her on the show, and a righteous smackdown it is. Now, we just need to let Gorski have as wide an audience as King, and the world will be a far, far better place.
