On 21 January 2016, dubious news and conspiracy theory site Your News Wire (now NewsPunch) published an article with the headline “Bill Gates Admits ‘Vaccines Are Best Way to Depopulate’”. The article opened with a damning assertion: “Bill Gates has openly admitted that vaccinations are designed so that governments can depopulate the world.” To support this claim, the site presented a February 2011 video clip of Bill Gates being interviewed by CNN’s Sanjay Gupta about his foundation’s vaccination efforts: Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Ten billion dollars over the next 10 years to make it “the year of the vaccines.” What does that mean exactly? Bill Gates: Over this decade, we believe unbelievable progress can be made, in both inventing new vaccines and making sure they get out to all the children who need them … We only need about six or seven more — and then you would have all the tools to reduce childhood death, reduce population growth, and everything — the stability, the environment — benefits from that.
