Vaxxed 2 – Dangerous Misinformation or a Call for Conversation?

Published

on

One shouldn’t have to preface a film review with disclaimers, but I’ve noticed that anyone who even reviews a film about vaccines is called anti-vaxx. I am pro-vaccines. I am also someone who reports on controversial movements, and while censorship of conservatives gets headlines, vaccine skeptics (or if you prefer “anti-vaxxers”) have been banned far more aggressively than Ben Shapiro.

Vaxxed 2 was a compelling movie that focused on the stories of families of what they call “vaccine-injured children.”

What I’ve learned covering this movement is that almost no one is “anti-vaxx.” They are “ex-vaxx.”

They took perfectly healthy children in for their shots, and suddenly noticed horrific reactions. Some of these reactions have led to lifelong conditions. Are all of these mothers lying, or are they mistaken?

“Correlation isn’t causation,” is what every mid-wit says when discussing vaccine-related issues. But in fact almost every scientific study you rely upon is correlational.

When patterns emerge, you investigate further. Could be a false correlation. You keep searching for the truth.

People find patterns in life that don’t match. Mass hysteria is real. It could be that these mothers claiming to have vaccine-injured children are mistaken about what happened to their children.

Are the moms lying?

Yet rather than talk to these moms – and yes they are always almost moms, which is why the dehumanizing label of anti-vaxxer is rooted in hatred of women – the media dismisses them.

One famous example was when Oliver Darcy of CNN targeted Bill Shine, a White House official, about his wife Darla Shine’s views on vaccines.

Darcy refused to talk to Darla but instead kept asking Bill for comment. How is that not totally sexist and dismissive of women? Is Bill supposed to control his wife or something?

They would take us seriously if we were men,” is what these women keep repeating, and it’s hard to not believe them.

Vaxxed 2 focuses on the families.

There isn’t much scientific discussion in Vaxxed 2, and as a filmmaker I understand that approach.

Vaxxed 2 instead focuses on families of claimed vaccine-injured children.

I heard sobbing throughout the film, and even I had to turn away once or twice.

Yes, some of these parents lost children. In the case of Christina Tarsell, a court found that Gardasil was linked to the death of a young woman:

The evidence included testimony and reports by experts, reams of studies and medical records. The court determined that we had met our burden of proof according to the law and “Ms. Tarsell is entitled to compensation.” All of the court documents are available on the Court of Federal Claims’ website and on my website at www.gardasil-and-unexplained-deaths.com.

It was determined that Christina died from an arrhythmia induced by cross-reactivity between Gardasil and the calcium channel in her heart. The court paid particular attention as to whether the arrhythmia existed before inoculation with Gardasil. An extensive review of Christina’s 20-year medical history, including 30 specific medical appointments showed no arrhythmia before HPV vaccination (tabulated on page 22 of the judge’s report).

Vaxxed 2 is a moving film, and despite my pro-vaccine views, it left me wondering why the media completely dismisses and silences these mothers.

The mothers could be lying for attention, although I don’t think that, and doubt you will too.

The mothers could be mistaken.

But it’s a moral travesty that these mothers are ignored.

Published

UPDATE:

CNN’s Brian Stelter falsely accused a woman of spreading disinformation tonight, in a Tweet Stelte deleted without apology after it was revealed that Stelter lying.

The lie concerned a fire started by rioters in Washington D.C. Katrina B. Haydon reported that St. John’s church near the White House was on fire.

 

 

 

Stelter attacked the woman, baselessly accusing her of lying.

 

Brian Stelter has yet to apologize to spreading disinformation.

Did Brian Stelter lie to protect violent protesters?

Why did Stelter lie?

Is he trying to provide propaganda for violent protesters and domestic terrorists?

Trump Channels CNN in Joe Scarborough “Cold Case”

Published

on

“It’s possible, but I don’t know.” With those words former FBI Director James Comey set a new standard for media coverage of public figures. Even when there is no evidence to substantiate your claim, even when you’re relying on a document that had been discredited within the FBI, even when you’re quoting work product that was the result of Russian disinformation, you give no quarter to your enemies.

I am referencing the infamous pee-pee interview James Comey gave to ABC. Comey’s words were amplified by every media outlet. No context was added (such as the FBI’s knowing the Steele dossier was funded by Democrats and contained hoaxes from Russian pranksters).

And now Trump is applying these same principles to Joe Scarborough.

Media figures cry foul. What moral authority do they have?

Scarborough’s own colleague Rachel Maddow accuses people of being Russian assets. When called to answer those allegations in court, she claims that her assertions, believed to be statements of fact by her millions of viewers, are “quintessential statements of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false.”

As much as I’m glad to see Joe Scarborough be treated with the same “journalistic ethics” as he treats others, I feel for the Lori Klausutis family, who no doubt do not want these painful memories resurfaced. Scarborough deserves this, but the Klausutis family does not.

But as always the media is treating itself as the real victim here.

The same media figures who recklessly smeared innocent teenagers from Covington High School as racists have much to say about a need for others to measure their words.

The same media figures who obsess over every mean Tweet a conservative posts ignores Scarborough’s on-air recording joking about the tragic death of a staffer.

Feel some empathy for the Klausutis. They are caught in a battle they didn’t start.

Scarborough, however, is getting exactly what he and everyone else on cable news deserves.
