Katie Couric is a famous journalist that has worked for ABC, CBS, and NBC News.
She also co-hosted the Today show (1991-2006) and hosted her own daytime talk show Katie.
Along the way, she has managed to do more than a few reports that have been characterized as antivaccine, irresponsible, and fear mongering.
Although most people are talking about her recent segment on the HPV vaccine when they talk about her irresponsible reporting, it is important to remember that she also did a segment on Now with Tom Brokaw and Katie Couric about DPT “hot lots” in 1994.
The idea of hot lots relied on reports to VAERS and was pushed by the NVIC anti-vaccine group.
