Did you know that they use food colored shortening instead of ice cream in commercials?
Or that they coat vegetables in oil to make them shiny.
Did you know that they use blue sticks to hold out a models hair in a shampoo commercial so that her hair look fuller ?
Then edit the sticks out?
Did they use this picture to prove an outbreak that wasn't real or something? Or was it just art to accompany a story about measels?
God you guys can manufacture more rage over nothing. Its ridiculous.

The measles outbreak isn't an agenda.
But anti-vaccination is... hmmmmmm

Where would they get a photo of a child suffering measles? Offer big money to the parents? Yeah folks bring us your child sick with fever and let us take pictures of him her.... So much better than using an illustration. So much more honest.
What if it was just a drawing of a baby with measles? Would you have an issue with that?

There will come a day when the US population will be so conditioned that they will wait in line nicely for any poison or toxin that the government chooses to mete out.

We should always question, always be skeptical.

The minute we don't, then we're screwed.

Because we are for the most part vaccinated? We can't start an epidemic from our stock because our stock is clean and vaccinated.
Yes an epidemic would be imported. But we'd be okay. Most of us anyway.

My son is very sensitive to the vaccines. He got a fever with every one and in the case of the measles he broke out in the rash too.
I called the doctors office and was told it happens sometimes. It is not a full blown case of measles. The case is minor not contagious and very short lived. The vaccine is weakened. Its sure not the same as full blown measles which I dealt with with my oldest child.
My son still slept for a day after each vaccine he ever got.
He was just inoculated en-mass in bootcamp and he got sick again. Only he had to run with the fever this time instead of sleeping it off.

I have never had the flu either. I walk every day but I do not work out. Some people are very resistant.
Remember all of us are ancestors of the people who survived the plagues of centuries past.
My brother has never had a cold or respiratory virus. None of us have ever had the flu. My three sons have never had the flu.
Lucky lucky us.

Measles is usually treated at home. Unless there are extreme symptoms.

That bank wagon is actually the local bus in these parts. Stops at every third street corner.

I guess a drawing of measles would be better. No fake babies. or completely fake ones.

I guess the outbreak is fake too.

Don't go asking anti-vaxxers for evidence.

The most we can hope for is that these people will weed themselves out without too much collateral damage.

Disclaimer: The previous paragraph was pure BS. But it's OK because I was just trying to make an impact.


Well, then it's fine!


I won't say this kid exposed to mustard gas died in Syria. I'll just include it in all my pro-intervention articles so people will make the emotional connection I want them to. It's not a lie, per se... If someone was exposed it would look something like that. It's just a visual aid.

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.


And if it was a picture of a real child, suffering, you'd say that they were exploiting the pain of an innocent child to evoke fear to push their evil vaccination narrative.



Can you not help yourself in telling people what they will think? Seriously, get a grip on your own level of importance and stop expressing and projecting your own thoughts up[on others. This is the problem with your type of dogma. You feel so righteous that you think that telling people how to think is justified. That is a prime example of d-bag thinking, don;t think like a d-bag.

Just stop it already....think for yourself, not others.

This was both a government and media publication. I expect lies from the government, that is what they do. HOwever, media outlets, especially NEWS outlets that employ journalists should be held to their own standards, wouldn't you agree?

Society of Professional Journalists: Code of Ethics


The SPJ Code of Ethics is a statement of abiding principles supported by explanations and position papers that address changing journalistic practices. It is not a set of rules, rather a guide that encourages all who engage in journalism to take responsibility for the information they provide, regardless of medium. The code should be read as a whole; individual principles should not be taken out of context. It is not, nor can it be under the First Amendment, legally enforceable.


Here is the relevant code that I am arguing about, and you seem to think is irrelevant (emphasis mine):

Never deliberately distort facts or context, including visual information. Clearly label illustrations and re-enactments.


But, I guess to you and others, it is certainly justified to misrepresent, visually, a baby with measles sine it advances your own position on the topic. It's not a lie to you if it emotionally manipulates people toward your own position.

That, is hypocrisy, and d-bag thinking, which I expect you wallow in each and every day. Not a nice way to live IMO, to have a lack of integrity and self respect.

I am pro vaccine, but using a fake pic to push a story is not okay.
Journalism is a sad shadow of what it once was.

Pushing vaccinations is also an agenda. Or, do you think the big pharmacies conglomerates are not looking to cash in on fear and doom porn? If you do, I believe you might be a bit too naive on the ways of big $$$.

Fear sells, and it seems you are buying it without question.

Yes. An agenda to reduce infection rates.
Shameful, but it works.

Don't have to. But did.

I explained the probable reason earlier. Also explained that it was ill-conceived.

Sure sound like you are either defending or ambivalent about them doing that here. For a regular advertisement for some useless product that they promise will make your life better, I would expect it. However, to do it in an INFORMATIONAL news story, produced by a government entity and major news outlet, it is wildly against any journalistic integrity.
