← An Open Letter to Bill Maher on Vaccinations

Thor25's Avatar Jump to comment 28 by Thor25

Tonights Real Time with Bill Maher his panel was utterly silent at some of his irrational statements about medicine, about his mistrust of doctors and his irrational beliefs on vaccinations.

He's obviously aware of the backlash since his last show with Frist making him look stupid (how crazy is that) and now after this show I suspect the pressure an noise will only grow 100 fold after his antics tonight.

Its too bad, like Mr. Shermer said he's so skeptical of all these other things while in this respect he treats all of this much like the people he routinely mocks in creationists, truthers, etc..

I don't know if Bill will back off or even admit that he was mistaken, there is so many people part of this anti vaccination movement that he probably feels comfort in that.

Very sad, Richard Dawkins award winner, even though I don't really feel that upset about it, this last 2 weeks shows by Bill makes me wish I just hadn't heard the things he's saying.

I definitely like for people to keep the pressure up and not let Bill get away with these comments, just like Jenny Mccarthy he's helping to spread fear and mistrust based on no real science and this no only hurts heard immunity but is needlessly killing people and sending many people (very costly Bill to our healthcare) to hospitals.

He talks about preventative care, how about one of our most effective tools to avoid people dying or getting sick?

Wake up Bill.
