Vaccines and Autism – Media Report Card
Here’s my Media Score Card for this article:
Much rubbish, a few good points. I give her a C–.
‘vaccinate at any cost’ = Strawman
Court decisions =/= Science
Incomplete knowledge = No knowledge = Fail
Anecdote =/= Good Evidence
“acceptable risk” argument simplifies risk/benefit assessment = Fail
“Teh Toxins” = Fail
Injection = Unnatural = Fail
“canaries in the coalmine” = Fail. Can someone say “Mommy instinct”?
Respectful discussion = Win
Pro-information = Win
Complex topic = Win.
All-in-all a reasonable person sucked into the Vaccine -> Autism perspective.
