Anti-Vaccine Movement Slammed By Daily Show; ID Doctors, Pediatricians Happy

The anti-vaccine crowd gets a pretty good drubbing here from Samantha Bee on The Daily Show. I’d feel a tiny bit bad for them — gosh their opinions are pathetic — but since I’m an ID specialist married to a pediatrician, I can only rejoice in the brilliance of this piece.

And yes, stupidity crosses political party lines.


Hat tip to Joel Gallant for the link.

    Thanks for sharing. Another treat from your blogs!

    And to add to that Evidence Based Science nonsense…check out Penn and Teller on You Tube explaining vaccination theory. Warning: graphic language, which is why no link included here.

    Ridiculous right wing bashing which seems an obligatory part of any infectious disease meeting. The anti-vaccine movement crosses all political lines and locally is often a “Woodstock” phenomenon. Disappointed in Dr, Sax

    Very funny and compelling! Thanks for sharing!

    Stuart, this wasn’t right-wing bashing. If you watch the whole thing, it’s funny, and unfortunately, there’s a lot of truth in it.

    Loved it. I hope it spreads like flu.

    What’s. consensus mean anyway? It’s just a fancy word that means overwhelming agreement.
