UNBELIEVABLE MISREPRESENTATION HIGHLIGHTS AUTHORITARIAN LIBERAL MINDSET
BY ALEX THOMAS
(INTELLIHUB) — In yet another direct display of the mainstream media purposefully misrepresenting the truth to their readers, the liberal magazine Slate has published an attack on Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina over comments she made about childhood vaccination.
During a town hall in Alden, Iowa, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO was asked a question by a concerned parent who wanted to know Fiorina’s position on vaccine exemptions for children whose parents are against vaccination due to their religious beliefs.
Fiorina then responded with what any freedom minded American would consider a legitimate answer but one that control freak liberals would consider blasphemous.
“When in doubt, it is always the parent’s choice,” Fiorina said according to the Washington Post. “When in doubt, it must always be the parent’s choice.”
Parents having the choice on what chemicals they want to put into their children?! Oh the horror!
Fiorina then further expanded on her beliefs in a question from a reporter directly after the town hall. “When you have highly communicable diseases where we have a vaccine that’s proven, like measles or mumps, then I think a parent can make that choice — but then I think a school district is well within their rights to say: ‘I’m sorry, your child cannot then attend public school.’ So a parent has to make that trade-off.”
So there you have it. Fiorina believes that parents should have a choice and that school districts should also then have a choice whether or not to allow unvaccinated children into their schools.
Slate’s Jessica Winter decides to purposefully misrepresent Fiorina
When you consider that the country is in the middle of a Presidential race, it makes sense that any news outlet would want to cover a candidates comments, especially one on such a controversial subject.
What doesn’t make sense is to publish an attack piece that not only at first leaves out a major portion of what was actually said but willfully and directly lies to readers. Sadly, that is exactly what Slate’ “features” editor Jessica Winter decided to do.
The hit piece starts off with completely transparent bullshit by titling the article, “Carly Fiorina Comes Out in Favor of Kids Getting Measles.” On top of purposefully misrepresenting the recent California measles outbreak, the ensuing article would make any follower of Orwell’s doublespeak proud.
Take note that Winter even quotes the Washington Post which didn’t decide to alter reality in their report. This shows that Winter KNEW she was being deceitful in her pro big pharma shill piece.
In Alden, Iowa, former Hewlett-Packard CEO, onetime California Senate candidate, and Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina stated that all Americans should have the right to contract diseases from unvaccinated children.
According to Jenna Johnson in the Washington Post, Fiorina received a question from a mother of five who said vaccines went against her religious beliefs because they were manufactured from cells of “aborted babies.”
Fiorina responded, “When in doubt, it’s always the parent’s choice,” meaning that all parents should decide for themselves if their unvaccinated child should have the opportunity to transmit a disease to an infant, elderly person, or otherwise immunosuppressed person. “We must protect religious liberty,” she added.
After being contacted by the Fiorina Campaign, Winter was forced to add the rest of Fiorina’s statement which wasn’t in the article for an entire day. Of course just adding the candidates actual quotes wasn’t enough, Winter had to misrepresent one more time…
