Someone Needs A Credulity Vaccine

Well fiddly-dee, one of the primary mainstream media voices of skepticism on #BENGHAZI also wrote a series on how vaccines cause autism:

Some of Attkisson’s most controversial reporting hasn’t been about politics at all. She has been widely criticized within medical-research circles for a series starting in 2002 about research linking childhood vaccinations to the rise in autism. The stories have been denounced in some circles as “fear-mongering.” Attkisson is, typically, unbowed: “I stand behind it,” she says. “It’s some of the best work I’ve ever done. My only regret is that we haven’t done more.”

Ah, the objective vocabulary of journalism, in which “some circles” means “science.”

As Pierce puts it, Attkisson sounds less like a partisan hack than a sucker.
