TV station guilty of misleading vax claims

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) said WIN Television breached the Commercial Television Industry Code of Practice in two news reports last August that quoted AVN's then-president Meryl Dorey saying “all vaccinations, in the medical literature, have been linked with the possibility of causing autism, not just the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine”.

In a statement today, ACMA said that by broadcasting the statement and conveying a higher level of controversy and uncertainty about immunisation than was justified by the facts, WIN had failed to broadcast factual material accurately.
