"Another one of Hollywood's chosen causes"

Newsweek puts a snarky spin on autism and popular culture:
Autism is another one of Hollywood’s chosen causes. The condition has inspired exceptional acting (Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man) and persistent debates (Jenny McCarthy’s stance on vaccines). At its best, Hollywood tells stories that captivate, educate, and illuminate. And this month, Los Angeles magazine, attempts to do just that with a special package of pieces about autism, which you can read here for $3 if you can’t find the magazine on a newsstand or in a bookstore near you.
