On the Radar: Autism study debate, Anna Nicole Smith case, Sudan's big vote, CES

Doctor defends autism study - A physician accused of an "elaborate fraud" in a now-retracted British study that linked autism to childhood vaccines is defending himself, telling CNN his work has been "grossly distorted."

Speaking on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," Dr. Andrew Wakefield said Wednesday he has been the target of "a ruthless, pragmatic attempt to crush any attempt to investigate valid vaccine safety concerns." An investigation published by the British medical journal BMJ concluded  that Wakefield misrepresented or altered the medical histories of all 12 of the patients whose cases formed the basis of the 1998 study - and that there was "no doubt" Wakefield was responsible. The journalist who wrote the BMJ articles said Thursday he believes Wakefield should face criminal charges.

Sentencing in Anna Nicole Smith case - The psychiatrist and lawyer-boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith are expected to be sentenced Thursday.
