    Measles? The media has no morals or ethics. Just scare the hell out of people to sell print. If it were strep or chicken pox …nothing. But the fear of a simple treatable disease that sells…remember SARS, West Nile, H1N1, Monkey Virus, MRSA, Ebola? This will be page 60 in no time. Just don’t let the media make you crazier than you are. To harrass parents outside of a day care is disgusting and shows the media for what they are…whores.
