National Post columnist Lawrence Solomen is now running an anti-vaxxer website. You can see it here. This is from the "About us" section:
VaccineFactCheck, headed by Lawrence Solomon, is a project of Consumer Policy Institute.
The "Consumer Policy Institute" is also just more Solomon, another part of his "Energy Probe" network of astro-turf groups pushing various corporate causes.
Now, Solomon probably wouldn't call it an anti-vaxxer site; he'd probably just claim he was trying to "teach the controversy". But that is, of course, bullshit. And after that whole thing with The Star's Gardisil article I thought the whole nation had come to the conclusion that this kind of ant-vaccine fear mongering was beyond the pale. But not the National Post, apparently.
So here's a call out to Andrew Coyne, who is apparently some kind of editorial big-wig over there at the NP these days: fire Lawrence Solomen. Ditch the kook. Show some class.
