CBS shows photo of child with “measles” to scare parents into vaccinating. Child’s mother criticizes CBS for using her son’s photo without permission, noting that the photo doesn’t show him with measles, but with a serious reaction to the measles vaccine.
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.
