On PBS: The Vaccine War

I did not have a chance to watch it on live TV last night, but it seems that PBS did a fairly good job describing the current state of the fake vaccine controversy. I often skip shows like that not because I'm not interested, but because I'm so used to the mainstream media being too politically correct and showing both sides equally, even if one of them does not deserve it at all, that I get too annoyed and upset watching them.
This one was not bad and it's worth watching.

Video here: The Vaccine War

Get a good deconstruction of the documentary from Orac: The Vaccine War: Telling it (mostly) like it is about the anti-vaccine movement

If you still think vaccines are "personal" choice, read this: Whooping Cough Outbreak in California Kills Two
