Sharyl Attkisson hosts Full Measure for Sinclair Broadcast group.

Attkisson has a lengthy record of shoddy, inaccurate reporting, and she has pushed a bizarre conspiracy theory that the government hacked her home electronics
https://respectfulinsolence.com/2019/01 ... n-is-back/Sharyl Attkisson is back, and she’s flogging a new-old antivaccine conspiracy theory
As a reporter with a decade-long history of credulously reporting antivaccine conspiracy theories and pseudoscience as news, Sharyl Attkisson is an old “friend” of the blog. This time, she’s reporting a new-old conspiracy theory about the Autism Omnibus proceedings. I say “new-old” because she tries to mightily to produce a new version of the central conspiracy theory of the antivaccine movement.

affairs show in May, Sharyl Attkisson took a stand on hydroxychloroquine: The anti-malarial drug
As for reports of safety concerns raised by the Food and Drug Administration and other experts, Attkisson interviewed a Detroit cardiologist who dismissed them as “fake news” and “fake science.”
https://sethmnookin.com/2011/03/31/more ... attkisson/For years, CBS News’s Sharyl Attkisson has been one of the least responsible mainstream journalists covering vaccines and autism. Again and again, she’s parroted anti-vaccine rhetoric long past the point that it’s been decisively disproved.
https://thehill.com/opinion/healthcare/ ... debate?ampThis past weekend the journalist, Sharyl Attkisson, wrote an op-ed piece in The Hill claiming that a "debate" about vaccines and autism has just reopened.
There is no link between vaccines and autism. I traced the modern anti-vaccine movement alleging vaccine-autism links back to 1998 when a paper was published in The Lancet (a prestigious medical journal), claiming that the live measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine (especially the measles component) might lead to pervasive developmental disorder, a term then used to refer to autism.
That paper was subsequently retracted by the journal editors and shown to be fundamentally flawed and scientifically invalid.
Interestingly I found this:

She added that both sides are more likely to call something fake that they do not like or agree with.
So, when she calls science "fake" doesn't have a motive?
