Blogs - Edward L Winston - Europeans are not immune from spin

Over the years I've heard a lot of people imply that somehow spin is something that exists only in America and sometimes in England. Of course, as one would easily guess, I almost always hear this from fellow Americans. It seems as though some people believe that foreign news doesn't play games, but it does.

On our Facebook group someone pointed out an article titled:
Does virus vaccine increase the risk of cancer?

Here's an exerpt:
Lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has said that there are many risks associated with the vaccine for the H1N1 virus.

He has grave reservations about the firm Novartis who are developing the vaccine and testing it in Germany. The vaccination is injected "with a very hot needle", Wodarg said.

The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of cancerous cells from animals and "we do not know if there could be an allergic reaction".

But more importantly, some people fear that the risk of cancer could be increased by injecting the cells.

Did you catch that last part? "But more importantly, some people fear that the risk of cancer could be increased by injecting the cells."

If we go back and read it again, it's clear that Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg is concerned about allergic reactions, however the article then jumps to "some people fear [a] risk of cancer".

It brings you in with the belief that a doctor stated something, but nowhere in the article does Wodarg suggest the vaccines could increase cancer, that's something some people suggest. Who are these some people? People on Natural News? The article never says, but it wasn't the doctor. I find it fairly plausible that most of the people who read the article will believe a doctor said it could increase cancer, not just some people.

Naturally, I don't know if the article did this on purpose, but it sure sounds fantastic from the title. No doubt they roped people in with a great title, hell most people do that, it's creative writing 101, but it just seems a little irresponsible the way it's written.

See you on Monday!
