    Default Anti-Vaccine Movies Disappear From Amazon After CNN Business Report

    John Sarlin
    March 1 2019

    Amazon has apparently started removing anti-vaccine documentaries from its Amazon Prime Video streaming service. The move came days after a CNN Business report highlighted the anti-vaccine comment available on the site, and hours after Rep. Adam Schiff wrote an open letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, saying he is concerned "that Amazon is surfacing and recommending" anti-vaccination books and movies.

    We all saw this coming. Facebook and Pinterest have already begun. Next to go will be Instagram, Twitter, and other social media.

    A survey conducted by Zogby Analytics (commissioned by Research America), shows that Americans trust in vaccines has eroded over the past decade (2008 to 2018).
    --In 2008, 82 percent of Americans felt it was "very important" for parents to vaccinate their children. In 2018, that number dropped to 71 percent.
    --In 2008, 85 percnet of Americans felt "somewhat confident" with the U.S. system for evaluating vaccine safety, and recommending when they should be given. In 2018, that number dropped to 77 percent.
    --In 2008, 80 percent of Americans felt vaccines were "very important" to societal health, but that number dropped to 70 percent in 2018; and
    --In 2008, 82 percent of Americans felt it was "very important" for children to be vaccinated, but that number dropped to 71 percent in 2018.
    **With this continued erosion in attitudes towards vaccines, you can bet we'll see more aggressive efforts to stifle any and all anti-vaccine messages.

    70% + is still a high figure. But it may change with time.

    The trouble is, people looking for factual information, genuinely trying to research, will increasingly find nothing but industry propaganda. I tried yesterday, in answer to a question; I was looking for an article that focused on the failed concept of herd immunity... and I couldn't find one. Yes, there was Dale Bigfield, but he's not an authority — not a doctor or PhD, just a researcher like you and me. Skeptics don't take that seriously.
