Say what? Breitbart news publishes WebMD flu vaccine propaganda shaped by pharmaceutical giants

One of the leading voices in independent media — Breitbart.com — is a great resource when it comes to exposing the fake Russia collusion hoax being imagined by the fake news legacy media. But Breitbart isn’t infallible, and the publisher seems to have taken a turn towards the dark side when it comes to the influenza vaccine. One of its staff writers, Penny Starr, recently penned an article about this year’s circulating flu that cites government propaganda talking points about how most of the people who’ve died so far this year from the virus became victims because they weren’t vaccinated. That’s fake news, as we’ve exhaustively documented on this website over the last several months.

To make the fake news claim, Starr cites statistics from the corrupt U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which says that the official death count among children has officially reached 84. This data was presented as part of the CDC’s most recently issued weekly report, entitled, “Interim Estimates of 2017–18 Seasonal Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness – United States, February 2018.” (For the record, the CDC routinely lies in order to push flu vaccine propaganda. The CDC director recently resigned after being exposed for purchasing stock shares in vaccine companies, but the Breitbart story completely failed to mention that outrageous conflict of interest.

Starr then goes on to cite data from the Big Pharma-funded fake news website WebMD.com, pointing to alleged data showing that, of the 54 kids (this being the official death toll number at the time that WebMD published this particular dataset) who were old enough to get the flu vaccine, only 14 of them, or 26 percent, had gotten at least one dose. WebMD, of course, was itself citing data from the CDC, as relayed in the journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

“About half of the children who died had underlying medical conditions that made them more vulnerable to severe complications from the flu, and 60% had been admitted to the hospital before they died,” WebMD admits, adding the caveat that, “In previous flu seasons, as many as 85% of children who died after getting the flu had not been vaccinated.”

This last point is clearly pointing to last year’s flu season, and really doesn’t have anything to do with this year’s flu season. But Starr somehow extrapolated this in the title of her article for Breitbart.com to suggest that 84 children have died this year from the flu, and “most who died weren’t vaccinated.”
