Meryl’s makeup hypocrisy

Leave a comment

Not content with with $150,000+ that “disappears” from the AVN accounts each year, Meryl has long had an online business selling makeup to supplement her income as editor of a non-existent magazine.

Oh, but wait a minute gullible AVN cult members! Don’t look too closely…after all, Meryl often insists she shouldn’t be judged by the standards she applies to everyone else…

Errr, little bit of a conflict with the naturalistic fallacies you usually push, Meryl. Oh dear…

Meryl’s downfall

2 Comments

This is a little old, but worthy of a wider audience:

The release of the 2011 financial accounts for the AVN causes the treasurer extreme concern about Meryl’s leadership of the organisation…

This video is loaded with in-jokes that regular AVN-watchers will enjoy and the cast is peppered with the usual suspects from the AVN crowd of quacks, charlatans, nutjobs and fruitcakes.

Enjoy Meryl’s downfall!

Meryl and the false balance bulldust

Leave a comment

Oops! Meryl copped another spanking on national TV – even more blunt & directly than the last time.

So what’s Meryl done this time? Short summary of events:

Regional TV program WIN News Illawarra indulged in some very sloppy journalism by inviting Meryl to comment on a measles outbreak. Meryl reflexively pushed her usual line of scientifically discredited vaccine-Autism link crud and self-described as a “pro choice” advocate. Numerous people contacted WIN News to point out their error; WIN ignored most messages and acted like an antivaxxer themselves by deleting others off their Facebook page. As a consequence, national media watchdog TV show Mediawatch ran a story on the incident, describing Meryl’s organisation in perfectly-worded terms:

“But Meryl Dorey’s deceptively -named Australian Vaccination Network is in fact an obsessively anti-vaccination pressure group that’s immunised itself against the effect of scientific evidence.”

“Dorey’s claim about the medical literature linking vaccination and autism is pure, unadulterated baloney.”

“Medical practitioners – choice groups. One opinion as valid as the other. It’s a classic example of what many – especially despairing scientists – call ‘false balance’ in the media.

[…]

To put it bluntly, there’s evidence, and there’s bulldust. It’s a journalist’s job to distinguish between them, not to sit on the fence and bleat ‘balance’. Especially when people’s health is at risk.”

The video and the full story can be viewed here.

Oops, Meryl! We know you crave publicity you attention-whore, but this isn’t helping!

National negative publicity like this will ensure it’s a long time indeed before you get another credulous interviewer inviting you to say whatever you want in mainstream media. Which is a good thing, because frankly you deserve to languish in obscurity…with, say, an audience of the dozen tinfoil hat wearers who listen to Fairdinkum Radio.

In fact, why not cut out the middleman and just invite your fellow nutters over to your house to listen firsthand to your next spittle-flecked diatribe? Why not fling open the trapdoor and entertain them in the room under your kitchen floor? Macadamia toast slathered liberally with Macadamia butter and a hot cup of Macadamia tea for everyone!

Oh, Meryl!

Meryl thinks wacky conspiracy theory “makes sense, Alf”

1 Comment

Meryl has never met a vaccine-related conspiracy theory she didn’t like, or even one she didn’t endorse wholeheartedly. Even so, this one is an absolute cracker by any standard:

Perhaps you think that’s just too far “out there” even for Meryl? That even she couldn’t buy into such a nutty, crazy conspiracy theory? Think again:

Whoa, Meryl!

Meryl fights censorship

2 Comments

Meryl was somewhat upset to learn that her lie-filled radio interview was no longer going to run on the inflight audio on American Airlines. She ranted, “Censorship is NEVER acceptable!”.

How ironic then, that she has banned hundreds of people from the AVN Facebook page for politely, respectfully pointing out one of Meryl’s many lies factual errors.

And then, a short time later, Meryl decides that she needs to make her hypocrisy even more obvious because there are still a few people left who haven’t noticed it yet. So she posted this:

Oh, Meryl!

Meryl and the missing vaccine victims

3 Comments

Meryl has been under pressure lately, with several government agencies pursuing her and the media becoming very unsympathetic in their reporting. So what better way to rustle up some support (and the usual drive for cash) than by showcasing a lineup of children “killed or injured by vaccines”? Great idea Meryl, soon the cash will surely be rolling in…

Oops, just one problem though…

Yes that’s right: Australia’s leading antivaccination campaigner and self-described “Australia’s leading expert on vaccination”, could not come up with a single report of vaccine injury in almost 24 hours. [There were zero responses on Twitter either.]

But Meryl frequently states that the real rate of death and injury from vaccines is “ten times higher than the official reports”, and that the she receives many such reports from her cult members marks, well from unnamed parents. And yet despite their reported gratitude for Meryl’s help, none of them responded to help her buy a new iPad the AVN fundraising drive.

Oh dear, Meryl!

Meryl and the limericks

Leave a comment

Fans of the Stop AVN page on Facebook have been having some rhyming fun with Meryl’s infamous exploits; here are the results:

To read Living Woo magazine
All AVN minions are keen
While taking their money
Meryl finds it so funny
that they’ll pay for what never is seen

‎”I’m a martyr!” you’ll hear Meryl whining
Amid all that self-aggrandising
Pissing on science
Is valid defiance
When Dorey is doing the defining

An anti-vax nutter crusader
A logic and reason evader
A hat of tin foil
A cart of snake oil
Come and join! (Just as long as you’ve paid her.)

The antivax crank, Meryl Dorey
Claims there’s two sides to the story
But her so-called conviction
Is nothing but fiction
An addiction to false claims on glory

Her efforts to be anti-vax
Lead Dorey astray of the facts
Amid the correction
And deceit detection
She scrambles to cover her tracks

Dear Leader cries “ACTION ALERT!
My purse strings are starting to hurt!
So here is a tale
Of woo, woe and wail
Now DONATE, including your shirt!”

An antivax liar named Meryl
Flounders to show there’s a peril
In getting kids vaxed.
Responding with facts
Is like shooting fish in a barrel.

When TV or radio discusses
Measles or mumps or pertussis,
Meryl calls with the claim
That she’s got a brain
Though it struggles to do itself justice

When Meryl was shown to cause harm,
She rushed off to court in alarm
“The H-triple-C
Has no power over me!”
And soon she’ll be losing the farm.

It there’s a lie, Meryl will shout it.
If there’s a law, Meryl will flout it.
Indisputable fact?
Related to vax?
You can bet the farm Meryl will doubt it.

There once was an awful quotee
Whose words were read out on TV
The dirty old rat
Said “Did _I_ say that
I don’t believe I did, let me see”

“Da gubbermint’s ebil” she said
“Dey poyzun us out ov our head
I redd it online
The trooth is all mine
Now subscribe and give me your bread”

A sceptic, dear Meryl is not
When she considers all vaccines to be rot
Her bias and confounding
Are truely astounding
Hence why she is the laughing stock

When Meryl said ‘I have a brain’
My sides split with laughter and pain
A tertiary degree
May yet let her see
Her Dunning and Kruger is plain.

An antivax activist’s story
Spread eagerly by Meryl Dorey
Though baseless in science
Displays her reliance
On appeals to emotion and worry.
