MMR scaremongerer sicks the legal dogs on Ben Goldacre

Let the blogosphere and twittersphere spring to his defence!

See here for full details, but a London broadcaster had a half hour long rant on her show about the ‘dangers’ of the MMR jab on 7th January. Ben Goldacre subsequently posted the entire, repulsive, segment on his blog, to show this woman up for the scaremongerer she is. The radio station she works for has now set the lawyers on him, insisting he cease and disist.

So I am reposting his plea for help, and posting links to the relevant content (original post here, complain about the broadcast here). If you have the know-how to help him out, please do so.

EDIT – You can get the audio of the original broacast from YouTube or WikiLeaks… if you want your head to explode with frustration… Also note this graph, which illustrates the very real effect of irresponsible woo like this.
