Oct 20, 2014, MSN.com: NBC's Snyderman faces credibility issues
Dr. Douglas Hulstedt, a pediatrician in Monetery, California, shares Smoot's preference for personal stories over scientific evidence. Hulstedt accepts patients who are not vaccinated. He goes even further, and recommends refusing vaccinations if a patient has a family history of autism, lupus, Crohn's disease, or Type 1 diabetes.
"Why do I need a medical study?" he says. "If 80 percent of the parents of children with regressive autism in my practice say their child reacted after the MMR [measles, mumps, and rubella] shot, why do I need a medical study?" Hulstedt says that studies showing no link between the MMR vaccine and autism or showing that vaccines are safe and effective might have "fraud in the reportage."...
The Atlantic actually beat the bushes found a doc who doesn't insist that all of his patients get vaccinated. Of course everyone else, including the CDC, says they're safe, safe, safe......
I tried to post a comment, but I was informed that "YOU ARE UNABLE TO POST YOUR COMMENT BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN BLOCKED BY THE ATLANTIC."
I tried to post ONE COMMENT...there were no links....... It seems The Atlantic is very selective in First Amendment rights.
The quarantine against possible Ebola exposure ends this week for Dr. Nancy Snyderman, but the troubles clearly aren't over for NBC News' chief medical editor.
An admitted lapse in the quarantine, combined with a curiously imprecise explanation, unleashed a furious response. NBC must now decide whether Snyderman's credibility is too damaged for her to continue reporting on Ebola or other medical issues and, if so, for how long. The network would not comment.
Listen NBC, Dr. Nancy's credibility was damaged far beyond repair years ago when she decided to cover up the horrendous damage from an unchecked, unsafe vaccination schedule.
