Ridiculous Headline of the Week: Disney and Measles


Here it is:

9 measles cases linked to Disney theme parks in California

How bad can reporting get?  The story was so poorly written but I checked other media articles and they all came off the same way.  Was it Disney who gave the measles? No.  But some shmuck is going to believe that.  The cause is obvious.  These anti-vaccine morons who are now decreasing the herd immunity effect.  Turns out the vaccine works. Those people didn’t get measles.  The Disney parks are just great places for people to cough on each other due to the crowd size.

Don’t blame Disney!  Vaccinate your kids!
