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.
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.
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.
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.
