    Inoculation theory suggests that exposing people to the tricks used to spread misinformation can equip them with the tools to recognize and reject such bogus claims.

    State Rep. Becky Corbin (R., Chester) knows about the ravages of contagious disease. ... Corbin, who said she still bears the physical scars from measles, went on to become a pharmaceutical chemist. ... Corbin and other lawmakers say they want to close what they call a "loophole" that has allowed parents to opt out of vaccinations based on philosophical objections, which along with medical and religious, are the three allowable exemptions. Pennsylvania is one of roughly 20 states that has a philosophical exemption, while New Jersey does not.

    On November 4, 2008, America changed. On that day, an inexperienced candidate with a scant resume and views that contrasted with the majority of the population was elected to the most powerful office in the world, the Presidency of the Unites States of America. Brand Obama is an ongoing series that chronicles the powerful psychological techniques used in this improbable campaign. Axelrod had one main problem: How to maintain support when his candidate was easily attackable on many fronts. He was selling a facade without much foundation. In the face of relentless attacks from a professional political adversery, how could...

    Rush Limbaugh made headlines by announcing ... "I'm not going to take it because you're now telling me I must." Glenn Beck has declined to say whether he's getting vaccinated. But he's...saying he wants the "U.S. out of my bloodstream." On the left... for the Huffington Post, Dr. Frank Lipman recommended against getting vaccinated, arguing that the virus seems benign and the vaccine is unproven. Earlier this year, Jim Carrey—yes, that Jim Carrey—penned a HuffPost column reiterating the oft-made (and widely discredited) point that vaccines may cause autism. Robert F. Kennedy made a similar argument in a famous (and also...

    A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 29 August 2009 | John Semmens
    Fear that the coming flu season will be deadly has inspired several extreme measures aimed at controlling the spread of the virus. The senate of Massachusetts has passed the so-called “Pandemic Response Bill.” Under the bill’s provisions, persons suspected of being infected may be interrogated and, if necessary, quarantined by state authorities “as they deem most conducive to protecting the collective health of the state’s inhabitants.” The Massachusetts bill would also establish mandatory vaccinations and would impose fines of $1,000 per day and/or possible imprisonment for anyone who refuses to submit or to follow orders given by state-licensed law enforcement...

    Of all the possible vulnerabilities facing Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign, Mrs. Clinton has long believed that the one of the biggest was money, friends and advisers say. Some sort of fund-raising scandal that would echo the Clinton-era controversies of the 1990s and make her appear greedy or ethically challenged. As a result, Mrs. Clinton told aides this year to vet major donors carefully and help her avoid situations in which she might appear to be trading access for big money, advisers said. Also to be avoided, the senator said, were fund-raising tactics that might conjure up the Clinton...

    Jeffrey T. Kuhner, whose Web site published the first anonymous smear of the 2008 presidential race, is hardly the only editor who will not reveal his reporters’ sources. What sets him apart is that he will not even disclose the names of his reporters. But their anonymity has not stopped them from making an impact. In the last two weeks, Mr. Kuhner’s Web site, Insight, was able to set off a wave of television commentary, talk-radio chatter, official denials, investigations by journalists around the globe and news media self-analysis that has lasted 11 days and counting. The controversy started with...

    CLARKE WITNESSED FIRST-HAND THE CLINTONS' UTTER FAILURE TO FIGHT TERRORISM "If Clarke's plan had been implemented, [i.e., if clinton had responded to the bombing of the USS Cole, a clear act of war, militarily instead of telephonically!] al Qaeda's infrastructure would have been demolished and bin Laden might well have been killed. Sept. 11, 2001 might have been just another sunny day" [So the real question that requires answering is this: Why did this legacy-obsessed president miss a golden opportunity to secure his legacy for all time by wiping out terrorism, then in its incipient stage and stoppable?
