Video: Piers Morgan Falls Ill Days After Receiving Flu Vaccine

Video: Piers Morgan Falls Ill Days After Receiving Flu Vaccine



Adan Salazar | | January 24, 2013

CNN host Piers Morgan is likely wanting another chat with daytime talk-show host Dr. Oz. for an explanation on why he got sick just days after having a flu vaccination administered on live television.

According to his recent interview with country music star and actor Dwight Yoakam, the host is admittedly feeling under-the-weather and has a sore throat.

Morgan asks, “You’re a singer; you must have had sore throats over the years. As you can tell, things are deteriorating. Is there any advice you can give me?”

Yoakam tells Morgan, “Don’t ever take a flu shot again,” referring to Morgan’s recent public stunt in which he and Dr. Oz attempted to dispel the “myth” surrounding vaccines that one can acquire the flu post-vaccination; however, Morgan’s “deteriorating” condition does anything but support the TV doctor’s claims.

Vaccines anyone?

Merck cheif admits cancer viris in polio vaccines

2. Published on Mar 1, 2010

Here are Bill Gates' verbatim words:
"The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent."

Next are two short excerpts from a recently filmed TED presentation (Feb 2010) by none other than Bill "Microsoft" Gates.
At the heart of Gates' address is the central Global Warming dogma, which dictates that Co2 emitted by human beings are the primary culprit for the heating of the globe. Since this artificial alleged human-induced heating effect stands to devastate the planet if left unabated, Global Warming dogma proponents therefore argue that Co2 emissions must be drastically reduced. As Gates casually addresses the issue, he goes on to state that one way to accomplish this goal is to reduce the global human population. In the first clip you will hear him state in plain language that he considers VACCINES to be desirable to that end. You will also casually hear him promoting HEALTH CARE and REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE, to accomplish that same goal.

Try yelling less

Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America sure got under Piers skin.

His Ill Health Is Due To The Ass Beat Down

That Alex Bestowed on him. After going thru something such as he did and having to hear from all his co-workers & friends that -

" Dude Alex Totally Kicked Your Ass "

Well his health took a turn - Emotions are very powerful when it comes to one's health, and everytime he looks in a mirror he is reminded of what Alex revealed - that he is a total AssHat

"You Cannot Stop An Idea Whose Time Has Come"

First, shame on anyone who would wish ill health on anyone,

even Piers.

Second, did it occur to anyone he might just have been a contestant on Beat The Reaper:

Chris Indeedski!

Daily Paul cured my abibliophobia.

sounds serious

they should probably amputate his head before it spreads.

Dr. Oz..

Anyone else see the irony?

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Having your crainial area permanantly inserted

up your rectal region is a sure fire way to contract an illness as Piers has so illustriously demonstrated. I'm afraid his affliction is terminal.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

hopefully he'll

go get another vaccine for a much more aggressive disease and the same result will happen.

I just don't understand the logic of the people here defending

Are some worth the risk - sure - we don't need Polio making a come back.

But come on people- the flu is not polio
For one - polio is only passed by infected people - it does not live "in the wild" like flu. You cannot irradicate the flu like you can polio

Two - the risk of dying from the flu is incredibly remote. The risk to reward ratio just isn't there. Sure - if you are elderly and have other complications, then sure the risk to reward may be there(and that mercury/aluminum cocktail isn't gonna have too many long term affects, since you wont be here long term). But for otherwise healthy people below the age of 70 to get these shots is nothing more than a money making, as seen on TV scam.

I just wonder this: Why when I go to the store does the law mandate that the candy bar I am buying - which I know is not good from me- MUST print every ingredient on the wrapper. However, when they want(and by want I mean mandate) to stick my children full of stuff, not only do they not have to have a label - they WON'T tell you what is in it.
Just makes me wonder.

I never thought I be rooting for a virus...

... but this one time I am making an exception.

Can we see Pier's

Get a colonoscopy?

Ron Paul Was Right

My flu "vaccine" consists of fruits and vegetables

Three or four oranges a day works pretty well for me.

I eat sashimi and drink beer.

I have never contracted bubonic plague. Clearly it's working well for me.

Are you saying there is no...

correlation between proper nutrition and staying healthy?

I have never contracted the plague either... or Ebola for that matter. Thankfully, those things don't exist in my location.

Yes and no.

I did not mean to imply that there is no correlation between nutrition and immune function, but alternative medicine advocates tend to greatly exaggerate the relationship.

Regardless, you gave a logical fallacy, and I was playfully giving a different example to demonstrate it.

"alternative medicine advocates tend to greatly exaggerate"

couldn't disagree with that more. I changed my diet 5 years ago and haven't caught a cold or flu since before that time and work in an office setting surrounded by sick people every year....before that i was sick every year which was the main reason i changed my diet.

How much reading have you done on alternative measures for health? How many books?

Just so you know...

I'm actually not against vaccines. I think vaccination is a phenomenal science. And I do agree with you that some alternative medicines are not always what they're cracked up to be. However, I don't believe everything requires a vaccine. I can see why someone would want or need a vaccine for, say, tetanus, MMR or HIV (if a vaccine existed for HIV, that is), since these types of diseases are not cured by nutrition. The common cold and the flu, on the other hand, can be cured by nutrition and nutrition alone. Why certain pathogens can be killed by nutritional supplements while others cannot is beyond me. So while I can understand why everyone needs, or should have, e.g., a MMR shot, I cannot understand why everyone needs a flu shot. There "may" be certain individuals - the sick, the elderly, those with compromised immune systems - which might benefit from a flu shot (maybe), but I don't see why there can't be more emphasis on proper nutrition. If nutrition works for me, it will work for anyone. That's really what my point was.

And even though I support vaccination in general (if it's voluntary), I still think there needs to be more focus on many of the contaminants found in vaccines. I do not know whether thimerosal, for example, causes autism, but I do know that any mercury compound is toxic to a human cell (including the nerve cell which will not be protected by the blood-brain barrier) and cannot be healthy. Many other contaminants (including carcinogenic viruses, such as SV40) have been found in vaccines. Such controversies have largely been swept under the rug by the medical establishment. In my opinion, more transparency is needed.

Swine flu

comes to mind

Anybody who says you can't get the flu from a flu shot...

is saying you can't get the influenza virus from having the influenza virus injected into you.

Sounds like a pretty stupid statement, doesn't it?

Check out the Laissez-Faire Journal at

"The State is a gang of thieves writ large." - Murray Rothbard

If the virus is killed, then no you can't.

If dead sperm is ejaculated into a woman, can she get pregnant? By your logic, why of course this can happen! Sex is sex and it doesn't matter if the tissue is dead! It would be pretty stupid to say this couldn't happen, right!?

Incidents have happened where people have contracted the infectious disease they were getting inoculated against, but it was due to a mistake in the process of inactivation or storage (sometimes other pathogens can contaminate a vaccine, hence the use of preservatives.)

By your logic... would argue that the sperm is dead even though the majority of women are getting pregnant!

"I'm telling you, the sperm is dead! I don't know how they're getting pregnant. Immaculate conceptions?"

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

The inactivated strains aren't causing the flu though

Let alone a majority of vaccinations resulting in systemic infection with the inoculating agent. So you aren't making any rational point.

Are you saying that the biolabs are lying about the strains beibg inactivavated? Do you hsve proof?

I'm aware they are supposed to be inactive.

But, there still seems to be a lot of people who catch the flu, right after immunization.

Forgive me for being skeptical of the same government enabled pharma cartels, that brought us SV40 carrying polio vaccines.

Debbie's picture

I heard a guy interviewed who's job was to administer vaccine

shots to the troops (he was current or former military, I don't remember which) - and he was asked what the most common side effect he saw of the flu shot was and his answer was "The most common side effect of the flu shot was the flu."

There must've been an awful lot of mistakes in the inactivation or storage of the vaccine!


"I don't understand biology, but don't take vaccines."

Let's all follow the lead of this entertainer, clearly he knows his shit! /s

Brilliant! That made my month!

I just wish there was more good news more often.

Assault Vaccine

Poor bastard! He fell victim to an assault vaccine.

I don't know what MMR is...

But I hope it is long and miserable.
