The Source: Why Was Express-News Booted From Autism Conference?

Contributed photo

Over the weekend San Antonio Express-News reporter Rye Druzin was escorted out of the Austin Education Summit by Dallas County Sheriffs.

The reason? He still doesn't know exactly why, but he is pretty sure that reporters weren't welcome.

The event boasted speeches by known anti-vaccine activist Jenny McCarthy and Bexar County District Attorney Nico LaHood, who has voiced concern over the impact of vaccines and his children.
