"The paper referenced the fact that Twitter’s users are more likely to substantiate their pro-vaccine information, whereas YouTube anti-vaccine camapaigns tend to lack factual medical support"

We already know anti vaxxers cant back up their claims, and only provide off topic links!

Have to love that last link. First off, it's a study of which Winnipeg claims

<quoted text>PEER REVIEW is a joke. Just like medical journals like the LANCET has sold out to PHARMA, peer review is now a pathetic fraud that more likely means its corrupt rather than real and true. When you grow up you'll understand.
So why anyone would read a study according to Winnipeg's reasoning, is beyond me. But let's take a look at just what he has.
Second, now that link-
"MMR vaccination has been proved to be safe and to reduce significantly the number of reported infections due to these viruses. However, significant adverse events can occur and paediatricians and public health operators should be aware of this aspect."
"In conclusion, public confidence in immunization must be maintained because safety and efficacy of MMR vaccination is clearly demonstrated; however potential adverse events must be strictly and carefully monitored."

And this is mainly based on a single case study,(other than a handful of reference studies which all but 2 are quite out of date) of which his condition cant be completely linked to the vaccine since they have no idea what the cause of the fever was 20 days AFTER the vaccine.
