Tomorrow (since I’m writing this at 9:30 p.m. after having spent all day on airplanes returning from New York City where I was at the American Society of Journalists and Authors meeting) the PBS show “Frontline” will air a full-hour investigative piece on the vaccine debate.
A producer and a cameraman came to Ashland when Leone was just a few weeks old and spent hours interviewing me, following us around town, and taking B-roll of the kids.
The press release makes me a little nervous.
They’ve decided to call the show “The Vaccine War” and I wonder if–as a parent who choses to selectively vaccinate my children–I will be portrayed in the episode as selfish, thoughtless, and unconcerned about the greater good.
You can watch the trailer here.
We don’t have a television at our house. I planned to watch it with some friends. But I had forgotten that James will be out of town and I haven’t arranged for a babysitter. Oy.
Will you be tuning into PBS? “The Vaccine Wars” airs tomorrow night at 9 p.m. ET and then will be available for viewing on the internet.
