  • I don't think Tracey was being accurate and I didn't appreciate her cutting Meryl off. Tracey didn't actually address the issue that Meryl raised (about the double standard being applied) and in fact, just started on a tirade without sticking to the topic itself, which was the link (or lack thereof) between autism and MMR vaccines. Meryl was invited to the show to be shot down to prove a point. It's so obvious. Why isn't she interviewing the likes of bloody John Howard or Julia Gillard like this? Would she dare cut them off? I don't think so!

  • Going by the number of comments in support of Tracey Spicer, it's pretty clear to me that there are an awful lot of people out there with too mkuch time on their hands whom havn't bothered to do any research of their own?? It's also pretty clear that they would not be able to have an unemotional or unbiased discussion on this type of subject with anyone who actually knows what they're takking about. I can't believe how ignorant some people can be by burying their head in the sand, only to come out when someone in the media appears to support their view. The fact that Tracey Spicer shut down the interview when she ran out of responses and her so called facts, is an absolute disgrace! She also failed to mention that her friend's child that contracted whooping cough was actually vaccinated! So rather than running a scare campaign like most drug companies that make billions of $$, how about we encourage people to research the topic themselves and make an educated decision?? Isn't that the most sensible thing to do, or are we just a flock of sheep??

  • This is a disgusting interview. What was the point of even inviting Meryl on? She never let her have her say or answer any questions. Tracy had obviously never done any _real_ research, pathetic for a journalist.

  • Fantastic job, Tracey. Its wonderful to see that you had researched Dorey's rubbish website well enough that you could firmly put her in her place. Good work. I hope journalists keep going until the anti-vaxxers wake up to themselves.
