MSM Articles on exemptions rising/tightening

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

It seems more and more articles are coming out on the exemption rates, and how 'alarming' they are, and how states are trying to figure out ways to tighten exemptions

Quote:
Marin County seeing rise in unvaccinated school children

 

 I'd like the know where all the outbreaks are in this school..if the exemption rate has been high all along, and now going higher, where are the outbreaks?

The Register's Editorial: It's time to tighten access to vaccination exemptions
post #2 of 33

Ugh it makes me cringe every time I see this.  DD will be 3 in Nov and hopefully in a full time pre-school program and our plan is to use religious exemption.  I'd love to use medical - but we left the original pediatrician who denied her reaction occurred and as far as I know a ND can't sign off in CT.  We see how they've "tightened" things in NY and made a mockery of the whole notion of exemptions by trying to deter people with as many hoops as possible....really hope it doesn't come to that here.  DH would kill me but I'd leave work altogether and homeschool if that's what it came down to.  Pretty sad.

There is an obvious agenda going on here.

This is the problem they have when trying to equate exemptions to outbreaks, they can't. Hence the silence. Same in Boulder Co, CO.

Why are they writing the article now? The data they are using was made public in the spring of 2013. Nothing has happened at the school mentioned. Obviously they have an agenda, and are not just reporting on the news.

Propaganda:

Do you wonder why all mainstream news channels, newspapers, magazines, tv shows, and even movies, all promote the same vaccine agenda? Do you notice the effort to demonize the people who don't vaccinate?

 

Think about it. Every single outlet is aligned with the same theory--that vaccines are good, and the unvaccinated crowd is endangering the herd. This serves to divide people, and frighten people into vaccinating--or risk becoming a social outcast, which is a true fear for many people. You must understand that all mainstream news and entertainment outlets are owned by a small group of corporations. They are able to control what information goes out, and what information is withheld.

 

If you think about it, what would You do if you were in charge of a popular magazine?  Would you promote articles about the benefits of crying it out, spanking, or circumcising? Or would your magazine resemble something like Mothering? What if you ran a company that was in charge of a magazine and a few tv networks? Would you try to use your influence to promote issues that were important to you? Of course! I surely would!

 

So, if a handful of huge corporations own the many tv and media outlets, it makes sense that they all promote vaccines. What I can't stand is the way they all attempt to create this vaccine war.  It is created, it is working, and they have labeled us as the public enemy #1.

Of course they promote the same agenda; after all the CDC has an Entertainment Education program that

 

"provides expert consultation, education and resources for writers and producers who develop scripts with health storylines and information. Because 88% of Americans learn about health issues from television, CDC recognizes that prime time and daytime television programing are great outlets for our health messages. The CDC works in partnership with Hollywood, Health & SocietyExternal Web Site Icon (HH&S) at the University of Southern California’s Norman Lear Center to share public health information with storyline creators."

From: http://www.cdc.gov/healthcommunication/ToolsTemplates/EntertainmentEd/index.html

 

At the bottom of this page there's a picture of a movie poster for Contagion. The Vigilant Citizen site had a pretty good analysis of this movie called, "‘Contagion’ or How Disaster Movies “Educate” the Masses":

 

"Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Contagion was produced with the active cooperation of the CDC, the WHO and other governmental organizations and its function is clear: To present a hyper-realistic disaster scenario to justify the vaccination campaigns promoted by these agencies while discrediting those who criticize them.

Nothing in the movie hints that it is a work of fiction. Quite to the contrary, everything in Contagion is made to be as realistic as possible, using actual locations and governmental agencies, to make the story as plausible – and as frightening to the masses – as possible"

From "How 'Contagion' spread to the big screen":

"CDC not only allowed filmmakers to spend a day shooting "on campus," but senior scientists spent a day with Winslet to help her prepare for the role. Winslet's main guide at CDC was Dr. Anne Schuchat, who led the agency's response to the H1N1 pandemic"

Also:


Schuchat says the CDC is trying to move toward more openness. "The more we focus on transparency, the more credibility we have."

Do you remember when Kathleen Sebelius said that Health and Human Services "reached out" to media outlets? http://www.rd.com/health/wellness/h1n1-the-report-card/

"We have reached out to media outlets to try to get them to not give the views of these people equal weight in their reporting to what science has shown and continues to show about the safety of vaccines."

Well, there's obviously some reaching out still going on because reporters, (I no longer call them journalists), are writing like they got stuck with some assignment that they knew nothing about and were too lazy to research.

The Iowa article in the OP was a perfect example, blaming the unvaccinated for whooping cough and stating erroneously that Iowa has "personal and religious" exemptions when the state only allows for religious.

Here's another gem written by someone who must have heard, "Hey, whip up a story about anti-vax crazies, will ya? I need it in an hour." http://magicvalley.com/news/opinion/editorial/our-view-anti-vaccination-freeloaders-endanger-us-all/article_ab1cc51e-79b4-11e3-a968-0019bb2963f4.html

You'll love this one. Are you ready? Pour yourself a strong drink first so that you can enjoy the dramatic spit-take that you're about to do:

"Fresh measles outbreaks now are sweeping across Wakefield’s native Great Britain, and tuberculosis is having a resurgence in the U.S."

Tuberculosis???? dizzy.gif

duh.gif

While they're at it, they can just blame "anti-vaxxers" for global warming, snow blizzards, and cars breaking down.

Excuse me, but how is anybody expecting any credibility when they can't get their most rudimentary facts straight?

Whenever I see a news story that gets picked up and regurgitated practically word-for-word with all the major mainstream media outlets, I can practically smell the agenda-pushing going on behind the scenes.

 

Looks like pro-vaccine organizations have taken a page from Operation Mockingbird's playbook on how to create a media echo chamber for their favorite talking points.

 

This recently happened with news stories highlighting the increase in liver damage from taking supplements.

 

However, what wasn't front page news is the fact that most of the cases are the result of prescription or over-the-counter drugs!

 

Over about an eight-year period from 2004 through 2012, reported cases of hepatotoxicity caused by any type of drugs, including prescription medications, more than doubled, according to Victor Navarro, MD [...]

 

[T]he proportion of cases caused by dietary and herbal supplements increased from 7% to 20% (P<0.001), Navarro reported at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases.

 

BUT:

 

Of those, 136 (or 16%) were attributed to an herbal or dietary supplement while the remaining 709 were considered to be the result of prescription or over-the-counter drugs.

Please don't give them any ideas. :lol

I looked up "Operation Mockingbird" on Wikipedia, and found this interesting quote from Mary Louise (2003). Mockingbird: CIA Media Manipulation:
"In February 1976, George H. W. Bush, the recently appointed Director of the CIA, announced a new policy: "Effective immediately, the CIA will not enter into any paid or contract relationship with any full-time or part-time news correspondent accredited by any U.S. news service, newspaper, periodical, radio or television network or station." He added that the CIA would continue to "welcome" the voluntary, unpaid cooperation of journalists."

So I guess business as usual in the US is that businesses enter into paid relationships with news correspondents unless there is a specific law or presidential policy that forbids this--or unless they know how to whitewash things and get around it.

Reading articles like the one on the second link just makes me want to bang my head against the wall. What is this agenda about whooping cough? Since even the CDC had to admit that it was occuring mostly in the  vaccinated population. And then the part about people who don't vax solely because of the autism link. Maybe it is really high time that someone educates us just about that so we could consider vaccination uhoh3.gif.

I wouldn't be surprised if some form of Mockingbird is still operational.

Has anybody read the comments on this article. Goodness - I haven't heard about this Dorit Reiss before somenone mentioned her here but is this woman for real? How much does she get paid by big pharma to write this BS!

I doubt they are. They make a lot more money off the illnesses brought back courtesy of non-vaccination than off vaccines.

But the information in question here is not coming from pharmaceutical companies.

There she goes again.  I guess she prefers spending Saturday afternoons to relentlessly defend EVERY aspect of EVERY vaccine, rather than spend time with her toddler...

Somehow, I don't think that's typical of most working mothers of toddlers.

If anyone is wondering, homeschoolers are *not* excempt from vaxx laws in Colorado. So the idea that parents will still have a "choice" by choosing to opt out of the public schools doesn't work here.

I understand that is the same situation in VW. I am not sure about MS.

Coloradoans should play their cards carefully.

I'm curious how legislators would react if you said, "Fine. But you have to live by the same rules. Herd immunity is herd immunity. Get all adult vaccines recommended by the CDC, or go see a doctor for a lecture and exemption signature."

I'm sure that a few would self-righteously roll up their sleeves. But it might open some other eyes. I'll bet if you asked one of them, face-to-face and on the spot, what all of the childhood school entry vaccines are, they won't be able to answer. Then ask them which are required and which are recommended, how many doses, how the disease is transmitted, etc. You're going to see people with minimal knowledge on vaccines try to make laws about them. Education is key.
