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.
