Professor Stephen Doig, who teaches journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Arizona State University, jumped on a band-wagon of disability abusers to torment a vaccine-damaged woman. According to Michelle Brandabur in the Daily Dot:
Stephen Doig, a data journalism professor at Arizona State University and board member of the National Center on Disability and Journalism, told the Daily Dot that Skelton “is clearly faking a problem.”
Shawn Skelton’s case – taken on face-value by this blog – was covered in yesterday’s post under the heading “A warning to parents”. Striking similarities were observed between the outward appearance of Shawn’s involuntary movements and victims of Sydenham’s chorea, also known as St. Vitus Dance – even though Sydenham’s chorea is usually found in children.
Professor Doig is a joint recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, 1993, and has “organized and judged the annual Phil Meyer Award for Precision Journalism (2007-2016)”. He teaches a course in precision journalism.
With these prestigious awards and expertise perhaps he can give us his expert opinion on how Shawn Skelton manages to fake tongue spasms.
I’ve emailed Professor Doig for a comment on how he knew Shawn was faking it and copied in a medical doctor. At the time of going to press he has yet to respond.
More Moderna problems
Yesterday I reported that children were being vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine in guinea-pig trials to see what adverse reactions might occur. While engaged in researching and writing that piece Russia Today broke the story of a Californian vaccination site where there had been several adverse reactions, possibly anaphylaxis. A batch of Moderna vaccines has been withdrawn from use.
The specific site was not mentioned in the report but most of these adverse reactions seem to have come from one vaccination centre in San Diego. It is most likely to be the Rady Children’s Hospital because that is the only vaccine site not currently taking appointments.
Unlike the Teenscope child recruitment project the California Department of Public Health clearly states:
Currently, COVID-19 vaccines are not recommended for children:
Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is for ages sixteen and above
Moderna vaccine is for ages eighteen and above.
Clinical trials are ongoing to identify a safe vaccine for children.
Moderna stock has plummeted 30% from its 52-week high of 1 December 2020. Following recent events it may well fall further.
