Baltimore Sun drops the ball on Jenny McCarthy fluff

12 May

Sometimes you just gotta laugh. And cry. For a Mother’s day picture roundup, the Baltimore Sun included Jenny McCarthy. She’s a mom, sure. But check out the caption.

Actress Jenny McCarthy is a vocal advocate for parents making informed healthcare decisions and has written a best-selling book about her struggle to heal her son’s autism. Pictured: McCarthy, host of the new reality series “Love in the Wild,” takes part in a panel discussion at the NBCUniversal Summer Press Day 2012 introducing new television shows for the summer season in Pasadena, California on April 18, 2012

Jenny McCarthy, informed healthcare advocate.

I guess she’s been quiet for long enough that the media has forgotten her “advocacy”. From shouting “bullshit” at the head of the AAP to the “Green Our Vaccines” rally to, in general, spreading poor information about autism and vaccines, Jenny McCarthy is not on my list of health care advocates.

    Geez, she’s a reality show host, why try to puff up her credentials that have nothing to do with her “celebrity” as it were?

    “Actress Jenny McCarthy is vocal” – Well that much, we can all agree on!

    McCarthy is a prime example of American worship of idiot beauty over science. Like Palin in American politics, she is loud, mistaken and completely uninterested in learning or correcting errors. The only reason either remains as a media target is infatuation.

    “Informed?” What was the article writer smoking?

    Sure this is a headdesk moment,but it was obviously written by a like minded fellow traveler.

    Some people still have not gotten the memo that McCarty’s son wasn’t autistic in the first place.
