The Pathologically Biased Film That Is “The Pathological Optimist”

It is still hilarious that vaccine sock puppet Brian Deer blew up at The Pathological Optimist producer after he declined to be included in the film. Nonetheless, it is not something that any anti-vaxxer or vaccine skeptic should promote. Despite being a “character study” of Dr. Andrew Wakefield according to the film’s producer, it also concludes by taking the position that vaccines are safe. The Pathological Optimist is pathological itself in that it suffers from pathological bias while purporting to be neutral by giving Wakefield a chance to respond to allegations against him. And even on that aspect of the film, it falls short.

So Autism Investigated’s editor took the film’s producer to task multiple times on Twitter:

Only after she was prompted a second time in a tweet supported by multiple people including Rob Schneider did Miranda Bailey finally respond with a deflection:

Told that it doesn’t excuse her from also incorporating facts that would show “100 studies” to be junk, she didn’t respond. Apparently, she didn’t have the budget to travel to Denmark and interview the indicted principal investigator of such “studies.” But even if she didn’t, she did a film on Dr. Wakefield’s documentary Vaxxed knowing that it was about a CDC scientist who admitted to committing fraud in one of those “studies.” Yet to her, such papers (they’re not real studies) are the final word on the topic. And that’s the anti-vaccine standard of being “fair” or “neutral?” Um, no.

But we’re all supposed to promote the film anyway, right? After all, doesn’t it give Wakefield a fair shot at responding to all the smears leveled against him? Oh wait…

Like her “100 studies” excuse, Miranda Bailey makes another bullshit deflection to dismiss Wakefield’s innocence. Here she was confronted with a British government document that exonerates Wakefield, and she said that it was not “credible” because the British government didn’t say so itself. But any idiot could read the document and see for themselves that none of it applies to a 10 year old’s birthday party far from any clinic or hospital. Bailey chose not to, just as she chose to include a list of references to government papers in her film with no context that would show them to be false.

    Sorry Miranda vaccines have never been safe and I don’t the government ever intends them to be safe.
    I wish we would have been informed about the risk.

    I wish I would have watched the Phil Donahue show with Bob Mendelsohn years ago. He knew the damage the vaccines caused. The public would be better served watching that show than watching Miranda’s bullshit filled film.

    I thought Bill Thompson had the answers and I am not seeing him testifying. Does our government officials want us to be a first rate country or not? Rate is 1 in 36.

    Eric Blair forewarned us all of their plans. No one listened !

    An apparent New World Order (NWO) numbering of the world’s population is in the works, which will affect and impact every human being on the planet from the first day of birth forward!

    Below is a schematic of their ‘game plan’. It’s called the “ID2020 Alliance” and is the most comprehensive surveillance database probably to date and being implemented on a GLOBAL basis, as you can see from the International Organizations involved, governmental agencies feeding it statistical data, and the countries that will fund it.

    If you look closely, you realize the importance vaccinations will play in that Alliance and the apparent role(s) Big Pharma will take in providing ever-increasing numbers of vaccines, which probably will never see legitimate scientific testing for safety and/or efficacy!

    The other thing that jumps off the page is the apparent close relationship between GAVI and the UN’s UNICEF!

    Why aren’t we an international movement ? Because that is what they fear.
