Chronic Fatigue Syndrome got a bad rap from the media in the 1980's when the illness was portrayed as "the yuppie flu" or a psychological problem.

Given the difficulty the ME/CFS community has had in changing the public's perception so that they understand that our illness is a real physiological illness, I thought "The Truth About Lies" on CBS Sunday Morning was interesting. Did anyone else see it?

Ironic this, considering that Dr Andrew Wakefield has just challenged the MRC and their journalist with being the liars in the Autism dispute.

Truth is personal it seems.

I'm listening to the Gary Null Show, which discusses the truth behind the vaccine scandal, and the slander that the mainstream media has recently used to attack Dr. Wakefield. It will be interesting to see if any main stream Media publish any of this!!! especially in the UK

Use any link below to download the podcast.
