A local pediatrician hopes actress and model Jenny McCarthy, new cohost of “The View,” won't be discussing her controversial and possibly dangerous views on autism at her new gig. “What we want is an open, honest discussion to the real risks and benefits of vaccines,” said Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, a pediatrician at Seattle Children’s Hospital. “Jenny’s stories have exaggerated myths and distorted the true ability of families to weigh the risks against the benefits.”
