It’s not about the report - the video is available online.
re: #61 Charles Johnson
The only possible compromise I see here is this:
1. Regardless of what Obama meant to say, if taken at face value the text can be only interpreted as referring to the autism-vaccines link. With all the context taken into account.
2. Whether it should be taken at face value or entirely dismissed as a bungled unprepared remark is a matter of opinion (though such opinions do not necessarily need to have the same weight). So journalists and commentators are free to legitimately opine that Obama did, indeed, say something that was prima facie wrong.
Anyway, I’m done with this topic.
