LIAR OF THE WEEK: Corporate Media Over “Measles Parties”


by Cheri RobertsChallenging the RhetoricThe Guerilla Media Network

Health officials cautioned the public not to host “measles parties” and corporate media reported this news as if measles parties were as epidemic as the disease itself. Fearmongering goes a long way for ratings which goes a long way for garnering advertising dollars. WHY is corporate media ramping up all the vaccine talk?

Do measles parties exist? of course. Parents for centuries have intentionally exposed themselves and their children to common non-life-threatening communicable diseases in order to simply get it over with. My parents did it. I myself did it, but currently there is zero indication anything of the sort is actually happening now. The false and negligent reporting is meant merely to breed fear. Even Snopes agrees with us.

Once again corporate media, shame on you. Maybe you will learn something from last weeks utter disgrace called, Brian Williams.
