New California Law Requires Doctor's Note For Vaccine Exemptions... But There's An Out

To JeanMarc: "Truth" in reporting means the reporter is able to relay facts without revealing bias. The choice of title "...but there's an out", phrasing, "there's a way around this new requirement" "if they (parents) just want to avoid the hassle of another trip to the doctor's office" (audio), and picture (child grimacing from what appears to be a very traumatic shot) all combine to create a very clear bias. That is what I believe to be irresponsible.

New California Law Requires Doctor's Note For Vaccine Exemptions... But There's An Out

I couldn't believe it when I heard this on the news today. What a completely irresponsible piece. Skipping immunizations is not a decision to be taken lightly. All scientific evidence shows that it can put not only your children, but the whole population at risk. This piece made light of these facts and seemed to encourage people to break the law if they just couldn't be bothered to go to the doctor's office. At a time when I am counting on my local station to report scientifically supported data and calm people's fears about immunizations, this piece lead a huge disappointment.
