On the face of it, yes. However, never forget, the journalists are not there for discussion or banter. They are there to get stories, no more no less. I am quite sure that no matter how positive he sounded about autism, the reason he threw it into the discussion was to see if he could get Osborne to trip over it. That, IMO, is what is sick here. Of course the hack in question will now be content to hide behind the facade of simply trying to get at the facts.
