Pre-mature optimism about a Huffington Post shift away from anti-vaccine rhetoric

On Tuesday, I speculated that The Huffington Post might be toning down its anti-vaccine propaganda* based on the fact that David Kirby’s latest effort to foment fears that vaccines might cause autism had appeared on his personal website.

I’m not sure what caused HuffPo to decide it wanted to re-post Kirby’s piece in its entirety…but that’s exactly what they did, two hours ago.

[*] That post ran on my website on Tuesday, before my PLoS blog went live, and was posted here yesterday.
