It's a lovely made up word that combines the two words " manufactured controversy " and is, to boil it down, defined as the art of creating a controversy where none really exists.

Aside from Olmsted's odd ridiculous
fear mongering comparison to Iraq's 'weapons of mass destruction' and Nixon, Olmsted and AoA better get used to no one wanting to interview Wakefield, and the only places Wakefield will be invited to is a park. Anti vaxxers need to come back to reality. You see shows all the time, they interview the cops and reinact the crime, the criminals who were found guilty are never an actual a part of the air time. Wakefield is no different and is treated like any common criminal. Get used to it.
The only thing controversial is those who wont let has-beens lay in peace. It would had been one thing had he appealed his conviction and loss of his medical license, but he couldn't and didn't even do that. Wakefield no longer is a part of any medical field, nor can he contribute to the medical field. No one cares what the fraud has to say. Anti vaxxer are an odd type, why would they only rely on this one person whose science was a fraud? And wouldn't you think someone else would step up and take it place, had Wakefield's 'science' been valid?? If anti vaxxers only have Wakefield to cling-on, no one will ever take them seriously. Wakefield is no fool, he see's income via these anti vaxxers. They pay him to show up at parks and being he's an unemployed non citizen in the USA who cant even get unemployment, he's desperate for money so he shows up.

Same use of the same word, less than a 5 word sentence. It's amazing there's so many examples of SIVP.

Funny that Winnipeg, who claims to research so well and knows sooooo much, requires the identity of Orac (why one wonders) but hasn't figured out who he is.

OK I give up, who is ORAC? Why I would give a flying fart who he is anyway, but its ORAC who hides behind that website. Was ORAC at the congressional hearing last week?

I thought you knew how to research? And why would you care? But you're the one who brought it up. And why do you hide behind this forum??

Winnipeg must be pretty thick if it cannot find Orac's identity in the minute it took me to.

Knowing who he is shouldn't matter, everyone has a right to their opinion and blog what they want without being accused of being paid by pharma which of course is learned in anti vaxxer 101 as a responce to anyone who doesn't agree with anti vaxxers.
Looks like Winnipeg missed that class, and more qualifies for being an anti vaxxer wannabe.

I don't really give a sht. Orac is a scumsucker and means nothing to me except he lies to the public and I don't like him or her for that. I don't like friend, Mark or Richard B either.

I guess in your little world no one works for pharma especially those who defend and promote it. Sounds like another duh moment from Minnesoduh.

Until you can prove who works for Pharma, the result is you're all hot air and no proof and an anti vaxxer wannabe other than the name calling when you're busted, again.
