How the Media Gets Away with Lying about Vaccines

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/10/28/how-the-media-gets-away-with-lying-about-vaccine-information.aspx

Interesting piece here by a vaccine educator and activist who was called a liar by someone inside the vaccine industry. She says suing for libel is not for the faint of heart. Bottom line is that we have the right of informed consent before partaking of any healthcare option, including vaccines. The problem is that most people's consent is given without being fully informed. This happens for both reasons: the patients do not invest what it takes to be informed, and the medical industry mostly just parrots what they're told by pharmaceutical companies. The vaccine industry will do anything in its power to prevent us from become better informed if it might cause us to not choose the vaccine. This is called marketing, but it gets a lot uglier than that.
