Dozens of children have been infected with measles in recent outbreaks in New York and Washington, according to the CDC. But despite the alarming spread of a vaccine-preventable disease, anti-vaccination movements have been spreading misinformation online, with YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, Amazon, and Instagram all recently taking steps to slow the dissemination of bunk.
