Witness what the New York Times says science says about the safety of the influenza vaccine versus what its own source from the medical literature actually says.
Observe how the New York Times deceives you about the flu shot. Witness what the Times says science says about the influenza vaccine versus what its own source from the medical literature actually says.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims that its recommendation that everyone aged six months and up should get an annual flu shot is firmly grounded in science. The medical literature tells us something else entirely.
Okay, not “everything”. But I do what the mainstream media won’t and scratch the surface for you, offering you a glimpse at some of the kinds of things we can learn from the medical literature that the CDC literally does not want you to know. (The agency considers “growing health literacy” to be a major problem.)
I have to thank Germ Guy for providing me with yet another enlightening — and entertaining — illustration of the intellectual bankruptcy that pervades the public discourse when it comes to the question of vaccines.
A recent New York Times article on the influenza vaccine provides a useful case study in how the mainstream media manufacture consent for the CDC’s public vaccine policy by systematically misinforming the public about the science.
To persuade parents to follow the CDC’s routine childhood vaccination schedule, Lena H. Sun in the Washington Post lies that every vaccine is studied for safety when given in combination with every other vaccine on the schedule. Confronted with her lie, she’s refused to issue a correction.
The Washington Post tries to reassure parents that getting their child many vaccines at once is perfectly safe by claiming every vaccine on the CDC’s routine childhood schedule has been studied for safety when given along with every other vaccine on the schedule. But that is a recklessly irresponsible lie.
Observe how the CDC turns its own assumptions about the effectiveness of the influenza vaccine into proven fact in order to sustain its public policy.
Bill Nye illustrates his ignorance about vaccines in just the first two sentences of his little “Bill Nye Takes On: Anti-Vaxxers” video.
To “solve” the “problem” of target vaccination rates not being reached, one professor suggests getting rid of whites who research and think for themselves.
According to the CDC, vaccination of preterm infants is a perfectly safe medical practice. Suzanne Humphries, MD, exposes what a dangerous lie that is.
I discuss how the public is systematically misinformed about the safety and efficacy of vaccines with C.Jay Engel of Reformed Libertarian.
Before the measles vaccine was licensed in the US, it was popularly viewed as a benign childhood illness that most everyone went through.
With the exception of CBS, every major media outlet in the United States shares at least one board member with at least one pharmaceutical company.
Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson explains how astroturf, or fake grassroots movements funded by special interests manipulate media messages.
To question public vaccine policy is to commit the crime of heresy against the vaccine religion, as illustrated by how any dissent is met by its defenders.
When asked whether it could provide studies to support specific claims it made about vaccine safety, the American Academy of Pediatrics ultimately declined.
Dr. Joseph Mercola cites one of my articles on the psychological factors making doctors susceptible confirmation bias when it comes to vaccines.
Daniel Summers argues that when it comes to the safety and efficacy of vaccines, there’s nothing to debate, but his own arguments show why he’s wrong.
In a shameless hit piece, The Atlantic rejects the right to informed parental consent and lies that there’s no evidence vaccines cause any health problems.
Here’s a typical example of an encounter with a pro-vaxxer who dogmatically insists his position is the correct one in defiance of fact and reason.
Scientific American provides an example of how the mainstream media’s reporting on the subject of vaccines is based not on science, but dogma.
The solutions being proposed for how to “fix” Obamacare are just more of the same kinds of interventions that have caused the problems in the first place.
Obamacare was sold to the public with the promises of lower premiums and greater competition. It’s no accident that the opposite has occurred.
Obamacare supporters naturally blame the market for less competition and rising insurance premiums, despite this being a predictable consequence of the law.
The Washington Post and other mainstream media choose to insult their readers’ intelligence rather than properly inform them about the risk from vaccines.
The FDA has approved GMO salmon on the mere presumption of its safety for human consumption based on its standard of “substantial equivalence”.
The CDC advises everyone to get the pertussis vaccine to protect infants despite acknowledging facts that ought to at least be cause to question that policy.
In OUR DAILY DOSE, filmmaker Jeremy Seifert lays out the dangers of water fluoridation informatively and creatively, highlighting the most current research.
