Given that he has said that kids with autism are nothing more than “brats”, and working within his definition, I think the diagnosis is apporpriate.
Here is a link to his latest controversy (are arbitron ratings like “sweeps week” for television–he seems to go off the really deep end once a year. I’m wondering if it is ratings generated).
In any case, I’ve worked with children with Autism and I can assure you (and him) it has nothing to do with the kids being “brats”. He should pick on adults instead of children in his quest for ratings.
