Fletch Swine Flu Propaganda Ads 1976

Yup, apparently this 'Swine Flu' thing isn't new.
There was a big scare in 1976 and as a result a huge vaccination programme was wheeled out in the US. One person died from the 'Swine Flu' but hundreds more were killed by the vaccination that was supposed to prevent it. The episode triggered an enduring public backlash against flu vaccination, embarrassed the federal government and cost the director of the U.S. Center for Disease Control, now known as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, his job.

I can see that the Main Stream Media seems to delight in it here. it excites them and gives them something to put on the 6pm News. And when someone is critically ill, well, they go into overdrive.

As Don Henley sang in 'Dirty Laundry' -

We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who
Comes on at five
She can tell you bout the plane crash with a gleam
In her eye
Its interesting when people die-
Give us dirty laundry
