For months now, the Free Thought Project has been reporting on the hype and utter hysteria being pushed by the government and the media alike in regards to the 2019 measles situation. It started in January as mainstream media and social media giants began begging for the government to silence those who advocate for vaccine safety and it came to a head on Tuesday as New York began force vaccinating citizens and charging those who resisted it with a crime.
Highlighting the nonsensical reaction by the mainstream to the non-epidemic of measles in the United States, a CBS affiliate out of Texas ran a story with an image of child—claiming that child had the measles. In reality, however, the child featured in their image was injured from the vaccines meant to prevent measles.
Dawn Neufeld caught the media company using the image of her son and was furious.
“So @cbsdfw decided to use my kid as the poster child for the measles outbreak. We did not grant permission of any kind for its use. But the irony… Will doesn’t have measles in this picture; this is the reaction he had to taking the ‘safe’ MMR shot. We’re not happy about this… at all,” she wrote on Facebook Tuesday.
You fucked up @CBSDFW - this is my kid you used in your story without my permission. He does not have the measles. This was his reaction to the MMR shot. Take it down. Now. Issue a retraction. It’s much easier than having to litigate a defamation case. I’ll wait. pic.twitter.com/ZJA7XYirqT

Neufeld is an outspoken advocate for safe vaccines. Despite attempts to smear her as an “antivaxxer,” Neufeld has merely advocated for safe vaccines and notes that she still vaccinates her children.
Because of Neufeld’s large social media following, CBS was inundated with angry comments on how “deceitful” and “negligent” the decision to use her son’s photo was—especially considering the fact that she blames vaccines for her son’s autism.'
