Description:

The paper comments that the news that is provided by today's news industry is a plethora of skewed facts, filtered reporting, and agenda-setting by a few controlling media empires, leaving U.S. citizens grasping for the real story, which is rarely the one related in today's news reporting. The paper discusses a review, over a period of three-weeks, of four articles published in the 'news' media, in order to analyze how information concerning vaccines and autism has been presented and portrayed by them.
