Social Networks & Children's Brains

Ah, nothing like a [rational, calm, provable headline](http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1153583/Social-websites-harm-childrens-brains-Chilling-warning-parents-neuroscientist.html) to boost the public’s trust in journalists. 
Spotted in Waitrose last night.
Debunked [not long after I got home](http://www.badscience.net/2009/02/the-evidence-aric-sigman-ignored/).
Noted: shallow, sensationalist reporting in a national newspaper, detailed analysis with reference to peer-reviewed papers on a blog.
