Whatever man. This isn't Wag the Dog. This isn't Canadian Bacon. This isn't a fake war, started because someone got caught getting spanked by a porn star.
This is a public service informative ad, created by CNN and the CDC (www.cdc.gov...). The photos in question are photo illustrations, meant to evoke caution and support for public health and safety.

I really can’t believe that people are still so against vaccination. But I guess you will always have those weak minded individuals who jump on the latest controversial bandwagon.
And fake, you forgot that little part.
It is a false image, meant to deceive you and force you to empathize with their narrative message.
Right. Anyway, why present fake pictures?
Because the intent is to create an impact.
Say it. So is disinformation.
Facts are often ignored but I don't think outrage over disinformation is manufactured and that is the point of the article, not an edited image.
The way to fight bad ideas is with facts and good ideas. Not propaganda and manufactured outrage.
Because it is a visual medium. Because the intent is to create an impact. Because people don't think about babies when they think of measles and they should.
Fake picture? Yes. Fake message? No.
Facts are often ignored

For the record, I am very much pro-vaccination for those on the CDC schedule (I think the flu shot is bunk- sue me). I am still against mandatory vaccinations because I believe personal liberty is still important. Who knows what the next "mandatory action" you will try to manipulate me into with fake images will be, after all?
