I was listening to BBC World Service this afternoon, when the reader announced the next story by referencing the return of infectious diseases b because of the"false" (his word) idea that vaccines are dangerous. "That is not true, he insisted, and mentioned one other anti-vaxx idea, again stating flatly it was a lie.This is a complete fabrication but you wouldn’t know it from reading this ABC News tweet, which spreads Trump’s lie uncritically https://t.co/i6037eDxTg— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 26, 2019
