Vaxxed ("documentary" on MMR vaccine and autism)

What the fresh hell is this?

I can't believe theaters are giving credence to this discredited "doctor", and even worse, it's at a theater I frequent.

Deniro says it "rasies questions". No it doesn't. It raises debunked bullshit.

The screening here sold out. If you see a measles outbreak in the Carmel Mountain region of southern California, you'll know why.

OMG -- Andrew Wakefield directed this? That's like having Richard Nixon direct a Watergate-debunking documentary.

It's one thing to present debunked crap pseudo-science as fact, it's quite another when the crook who did the malicious lying in the first place is the one trying to bring his work back to the forefront.

I suppose he might as well become a documentary filmmaker since he lost his license to practice medicine.



Full Infographic :
Spoiler:


And for the record, he isn't "Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine may cause autism." The anti-vax movement started with legitimate concerns about the awful original DTP vaccine (which was replaced with the far less antigenic DTaP vaccine in 1998). He's the British gastroenterologist correctly accused of escalating and attempting to legitimize the anti-vax movement with lies in a completely false and debunked article that made him famous and rich. What a fucking scumbag.

A local radio show has picked up on this because of a Dr. they are friends with who believes every word of this movie, and everyone on the show has bought in hook, line and sinker. Including my co-worker. I am about to walk out of the office, I can't take all this fear mongering.

Saw this out of stater (the plates are from Jackson Mississippi) in front of me earlier today and took a pic, a highlight of the biggest idiot I've seen today. Not just because of the anti-vaxxing promotion, but also because their driving was fucking atrocious and way more dangerous than anything to do with this argument. (Seriously folks, if you miss a turn keep driving and do a U-Turn when you can, don't slam on the breaks and wait for somebody in the turn lane to let you in. Prick.)
