(NaturalNews) The way the mainstream media continues to hype this latest measles “outbreak” is appalling, especially considering that measles is a benign condition not much different from chicken pox or the common cold in terms of mortality risk. Everywhere you look these days, the corporate spin machine is hounding people to get vaccinated in order to prevent disease outbreaks, but from where does all this unsubstantiated fear-mongering stem?
It can all be traced right back to the pharmaceutical industry, which maintains under its umbrella of control several powerful means of disseminating its propaganda to the masses. This includes television news, print magazines and online periodicals, nearly all of which receive a bulk of their sponsorships from, you guessed it: the drug and vaccine industries.
Both basic and cable television news is dominated by advertising for the latest pharmaceutical pills, the parent companies of which also manufacture vaccines. A bulk of media advertising, in fact, at least among the big boys, is for pharmaceutical products, as evidenced by the fact that drug companies spend more money on advertising and promoting drugs than they do on drug research and development.
