I’m not part of the vaccine debate about whether they cause autism. I don’t have kids and frankly, I really don’t care. But it is one of those controversies that piques my interest because the basic structure of the controversy is so similar to others that I have covered. It is an area shrouded in misinformation, beliefs and confusion because it isn’t immediately clear what source of information can be trusted. There is an establishment side that relies on one set of facts and controversial side that relies on another.
