In December of 2017 Slate magazine published a report on Gardasil from a Danish reporter titled: What the Gardasil Testing May Have Missed. Slate is part of the corporate mainstream media. Like other corporate media groups, Slate is religiously pro-vaccine, and spouts the mantra that "the science is settled" when it comes to vaccines, an obvious anti-science statement in itself which resembles religious belief more than anything "scientific." Here is an example of what you will read about vaccines on Slate: "There are two sides to almost every story, and sometimes we publish both of them. That’s true even for science. But three areas of science are beyond scientific debate even though they are still debated by a lot of people. Evolution and climate change are two. The other is vaccines." So if Slate has publicly stated in the past that the science of vaccines is settled and beyond debate, what was the purpose of this report published last month about Gardasil criticizing safety studies conducted during the approval process?
