Saturday, June 14, 2014, around 10AM while having breakfast, this writer was listening to KYW 1060 All News Radio, a CBS affiliate in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when to her great surprise she heard a news report that caught her off-guard. Why off-guard? Well, it was a report, plus statistic, regarding measles and the percentage of those contracting the disease who are fully vaccinated. Paraphrasing, the report went something like this, since she cannot locate it on the Internet or KYW's home page:
The current all-time-high measles outbreak in California since measles was 'eradicated' due to vaccines and vaccinations, has local health authorities stumped because 85% of those contracting measles were fully vaccinated!In that unvarnished KYW news clip, the facts finally had been stated publicly, however, not to be reported again on KYW, and apparently sanitized from the radio station's news reporting and archives.
What an admission - and over the airwaves! That's something vaccine safety advocates have warned about but health authorities deliberately ignore while continually contending it is the non-vaccinated who are spreading measles. Wake up, people!
So, why was such a candid statement about measles and vaccines/vaccinations permitted to slip through news monitoring filters? Was it too early in the weekend schedule? Was the regular editor off duty? Did someone who knows the real facts about news censorship controls allow it to slip through? Who knows? But, you can be certain that it apparently had to be pulled from further reporting because it was not in keeping with the party line regarding vaccines, vaccinations, and that non-vaccinated children are the cause of disease outbreaks.
The report I heard mentioned that there were 80 cases of measles. Trolling the Internet, I found that back in April of 2014 "a shocking 49 measles cases"  had been reported, "up from only four at this time last year".
Here's something that authorities should implement immediately, I think: In any and all infectious disease case reports, it should be mandatory by HHS/CDC, plus state and local health authorities, to report the following: (a) whether the individual has been vaccinated; (b) the type(s) of vaccine(s); and (c) vaccination dates, since some infectious diseases can be caused by what's referred to as "shedding."
