Sad, yet not surprising: Politifact is all pro-vaccine and pro-GMO
January 01, 2017 by: Jude Henry
NaturalNews) It’s become increasingly difficult to find the truth in modern news media, with so many of the typical outlets being biased, deceptive, manipulative and dishonest. Thus, it isn’t too surprising that the website Politifact is decisively pro-vaccine and pro-GMO. The organization says it fact checks what politicians and others with political opinions say, and then uses its “Truth-O-Meter” scale to rate how accurate the statements are. Ratings range from “True” and “Half True” to “Mostly False” and “Pants on Fire!” Although this may sound good in theory as a way to rate information, the website actually hires “fact checkers” who are completely biased in favor of vaccines and GMOs.
A clearly pro-vaccine mindset
For example, in September 2015 Politifact published an article titled “Ben Carson says pediatricians realize need to cut down number and proximity of vaccines.” The piece calls out Dr. Carson for saying in a Republican presidential debate that certain doctors were decreasing the number of vaccines that children receive and spreading out vaccines so children don’t receive as many at one time. It proceeds to offer a completely pro-vaccine argument that anyone who’s studied the vaccine issue has heard before:
“(The) vaccine schedule is also supported by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control … Leading medical organizations have concluded that the scheduling of vaccines — including multiple ones at once — is safe.”
One curious aspect of this article is that Carson is an internationally renowned medical doctor who was director of pediatric neurosurgery at a prestigious university medical center (Johns Hopkins) for decades before retiring and running for president. Meanwhile, according to the byline, the article’s author does not have medical credentials.
Another Politifact article, “Fact-checking vaccines and measles” from February 2015, discusses “safety of the measles vaccine — which the scientific community and the vast majority of the population consider long-since settled.” This is a another clearly pro-vaccine stance that does not objectively consider whether vaccines truly are safe.
When it comes to the issue of whether vaccines contribute to autism, the article flat-out denies that: “There’s a lot we don’t know about what causes autism, but doctors we spoke with said you can definitely rule out vaccines. Decades of epidemiological research has demonstrated autism rates do not increase when vaccines are introduced to a population. And biologically, no lab work has demonstrated a way for vaccines to cause autism.”
Also in 2015, Politifact stated that none of the vaccines that conventional medicine advises for children contain mercury, which is completely false, because flu vaccines continue to contain high levels of mercury.
Claiming that GMOs pose no risk of harm
In addition to the practice of administering unproven and potentially dangerous vaccines, another controversial practice of modern society is the free-wheeling use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in crops. Politifact is biased in favor of GMOs too, as the March 2015 article “Sen. Donna Nesselbush: three quarters of processed foods have genetically modified organisms” says this:
“They have been on the shelves for nearly two decades. U.S. products have been approved for market by as many as three different federal agencies. Independent safety testing has been done in Europe.”
Despite whatever Politifact might try to convey, vaccines and GMOs are not as fine and dandy as the medical establishment would lead Americans to believe. Politifact is clearly a website that readers should take with more than a grain of salt. Its Truth-O-Meter is anything but truthful and reliable in many instances, such as when it comes to accurate reporting about the truth of vaccines and GMOs.
Despite getting the vaccine, this 8 year old relies on prosthetic limbs after losing his legs to meningitis

NaturalNews) If vaccines are really responsible for eradicating communicable disease as is often claimed, then why did eight-year-old Kye Vincent lose his legs and left hand? This is the poignant question some are asking after reports of Kye’s successful prosthesis went public, indicating that, despite young Kye’s compliance with childhood vaccine requirements, he still contracted meningococcal septicaemia, more commonly known as meningitis.
According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail Online, Kye developed meningitis earlier this year, even though he had earlier received a vaccination for meningitis as recommended by public health authorities. The disease ravaged the poor boy’s body, forcing his doctors to put him into an induced coma to increase his chances of survival. Kye survived, but the deadly bacteria took both of his legs and one of his hands, all of which had to be removed.
It was a terrible time for young Kye and his family, as there were deep concerns that the boy might ultimately lose his life. Fortunately he didn’t, and his family is deeply grateful that not only did Kye live, but he was also able to get the implants he needed to allow him to walk and use both of his hands.
“Kye is the bravest person I know,” his mother Cheryl told the media. “There were times when we thought we’d lose him, but he’s a fighter and he’s not letting his disability hold him back. I’m just glad I noticed the signs and called the ambulance when I did. If I’d left it any longer, he might not be here today.”
Meningitis vaccines obviously don’t work
While this is all great news for Kye, it’s bad news for the meningitis vaccine, which clearly failed this young boy. News reports are clear that Kye received his meningitis vaccine in accordance with government guidelines, which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims provides “the best defense against meningococcal disease” — even though it obviously didn’t.
Even though the CDC admits that meningitis vaccines “are not 100% effective,” the government agency doesn’t disclose the full extent of what this means. Meningitis vaccines don’t really work as claimed, and they’re often very dangerous for young children. Even NPR admitted back in 2013 that meningitis vaccines are a failure, especially for newer mutations of the disease.
“It turns out that the meningitis B bacteria are tricky little things,” the NPR report explained, noting that many of the most recent meningitis outbreaks have been caused by B strains that don’t respond to vaccines.
“The older, more common vaccine (which protects against strains A, C, W-135 and Y) works by training the body’s immune cells to recognize the sugar on the meningitis-causing bacteria as something bad…The same approach won’t work for the B-type bacteria.”
Beyond this, the most common meningitis vaccines on the market today are loaded with toxic ingredients like monkey cells, aluminum, formaldehyde (rat poison), aborted human fetal tissue, rodent brains, and more — things that clearly aren’t good for the bodies of developing children!
It’s no wonder, in light of all this, that innocent children like young Kye are developing meningitis despite getting vaccinated. The onslaught of chemicals they receive from the vaccine itself combined with a weakened immune system and exposure to the virus is a recipe for health disaster, as evidenced by his outcome.
At the current time, doctors are trying to figure out why Kye’s injection for meningitis C failed to protect him against the disease, which appears to specifically be a factor of his body’s failure to respond as expected by producing the antibodies necessary the ward off the bacteria.
