Presenting ‘Both Sides’ Of Vaccine Debate Gets Tricky During KCBS Interview With ‘Age Of Autism’ Author

Vaccines 2.0KCBS Morning Anchor Stan Bunger offers this commentary on an interview Thursday morning with a vaccine skeptic:

After weeks of listening to people revile the parents who don’t get their kids vaccinated, I thought it would be a good idea to ask the people who question the childhood vaccination program why they think the way they do.

So we put one of them on the air for an interview. Dan Olmsted edits the website “Age of Autism” and believes vaccines are a significant part of what he calls the “autism epidemic.”

It may have come as a shock to those who assume these folks foam at the mouth, but Olmsted speaks in a calm voice and doesn’t rant or rave. He DOES, however, toss off lines that, well, aren’t quite true.

When he floated the generally-debunked claim that the vaccine preservative thimerosal was causing autism in kids, I challenged him, pointing out the fact that thimerosal is no longer used in childhood vaccines. He rebutted, saying it’s in the flu vaccine–again, KIND of true, because it is used in the multi-shot version of the flu vaccine that the vast majority of people don’t get–but nowhere else.

It’s a clever tactic: calmly suggest that the flu vaccine we all know and love might be dangerous, too. And it puts us in the position of having to play the “heavy,” which of course only plays into the belief of many that the “mainstream media” are part of the problem. And on it goes.

Reaction to the interview? At least one colleague thought I came off sounding like I hated the guy. We got tweets praising our diligence and others accusing us, in the words of one, of giving a “group of fools a platform from which to espouse their idiocy.”



Why is it Bunger's mission to downplay the significance of Dr. William Thompson's admission that he and his CDC colleagues concealed their finding that African American males who received MMR before 36 months of age were at increased risk of autism?

As soon as Thompson's name is mentioned, Bunger's off saying how much Thompson really loves vaccines and that Thompson's problem was with one part of the protocol. Huh? Thompson admitted that, having discovered an unwelcome result, the CDC manipulated the protocol until they achieved a result they wanted to release to the public.

I didn't think Bunger was hostile, just transparently and heavy-handedly serving his pharmaceutical overlords.

The exchange is around the 5 minute mark.

From CDC’s estimates: The estimated 2014-2015 U.S. flu vaccine supply has up to 51 million doses of flu vaccines with a full dose of Thimerosal of around 25 micrograms of mercury. The estimate is that the rest of the flu vaccines are Thimerosal free or with “trace thimerosal.” See .

However vaccines with “trace thimerosal” are still D009 mercury hazardous waste when discarded. And those numbers are not on this CDC site.

In addition to this CDC misinformation, they still promote mercury for pregnant women via flu shots without informed consent.

“Vaccination helps protect women during pregnancy and their babies for up to 6 months after they are born. One study showed that giving flu vaccine to pregnant women was 92% effective in preventing hospitalization of infants for flu.” See .

Finally the CDC actually is a dealer in this neurotoxic heavy metal via flu shots without informed consent. See .
