Vaccination Media Watch
Vaccination Media Watch is a project by an independent group of vaccination-risk awareness advocates, and the AVN welcomes them to our website. Let’s hear from the group…
We created this project due to the increased demand by the public for transparency and unbiased journalism from our current media on the topic of vaccination.
The Telegraph newspaper has openly admitted (28th July 2019) that it “pushed government to introduce rules stripping families with unvaccinated children of government payments and giving childcare centres the right to ban unvaccinated children”.
Both governments and childcare centres have followed the lead of Rupert Murdoch who has a vested financial interest in vaccination policy in Australia, see this presentation about conflicts of interest. Should this man determine the health-related decisions that tax paying citizens make for their families? Are we really witnessing the unbiased journalism that the media in this country claim to uphold?
