CNN Complicit in Media Coverup of CDC Whistleblower

CNN is now overtly complicit in the mainstream media blackout of the developing story of CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, who stepped forward and revealed that he had partaken in cooking data attempting to minimize the truth about the toxicity of the MMR vaccine in infants and the increased risk of developing autism.

 

Yesterday, on CNN’s “iReport” page, the story was posted.

As of late last night, the article had 45,232 views, 178 comments,( mostly people literally begging CNN and other media to cover it,) and a staggering 17 thousand shares.

This clearly is what we call “news worthy.”

However,  CNN has now deleted the story, claiming it was “flagged” for being “in violation” of iReport’s policy.

In violation of what?  CNN’s appeasement policies toward the vaccine industry?

CNN won’t allow the story of a whistleblower from a federal health agency who has admitted to falsifying a bedrock of data about vaccine safety, but it offered frothing, extensive coverage to Brian Deer’s claim’s that Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s 1998 Lancet paper was “fraudulent.” (The paper’s assertions–of a link between gastrointestinal illnesses, MMR, and autism– have subsequently been repeated in many other studies, and the paper’s lead author, who was funded to do to, went through the proper courts in the UK  and was vindicated.)

 

See the tangled web of interests here.

 

CNN’s frothing pro-vaccine coverage, and systematic bullying of critics, such as Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who was “interviewed” by an unhinged Anderson Cooper here, in one of journalism’s lowest moments, points to a very disturbing development in American journalism.

The $52 billion vaccine industry ship, meanwhile, mighty as it is, is taking on water from escalating leaks. 

Who will jump next?

    Whistleblowers need to have the freedom to speak out and these charges are too serious not to thoroughly investigate every piece of data until the truth comes out. This needs to be done by independent sources as the government and the medical community have a history of dismissing adverse and damaging side affects. Only with that information can a parent make an informed decision about if they want to take those risks and immunize their children. Our children are not guinia pigs to be experimented on.

    I suspect that where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Let’s put our heads together on this for some critical thinking, but outside the influence of what appears to be conflicting information. There are two possible explanations here for the conflict: 1) There IS a link, but Big Pharma & the medical community don’t want you to find out about it, so they’re suppressing any evidence; 2) There is in-fighting going on between Big Pharma & the medical community.

    IF there is a link between MMR vaccines and autism, then doctors administering these vaccines know it & must be covering it up. Big Pharma knows it, and are covering it up. Unless parents of these children who are afflicted immediately post-vaccination are not informing their doctors. I find this difficult to believe. Nurses? Is there any corroborating “evidence” (correlation leading to possible causation, but no formal investigation by those seeing the links?) from healthcare workers (meaning doctors on down)? Are these reports being suppressed?

    Autism could be caused by many things. Why have so many hinged on vaccinations & why specifically MMR? It is possible that information and contraindications are being suppressed/censored. We need to look at this critically, logically. I doubt any of us will ever be allowed into the research & testing labs where definitive results can be viewed. Reports can be skewed.

      I’m sure it’s at least a factor – and more then one study has discovered vaccine measles viruses, not wild viruses, in the guts of children suffering from the same maladies Dr. Wakefield and his colleagues were treating – pain wracking intestinal issues among autistic children. Studies in Scotland and Virginia USA corroborated their findings.

      Medical practitioners are under the gun. Step outa line and there go their hard earned careers. The whole allopathic medical system is ruled by Big Phama for profit – not healing or disease prevention.

      You should look over other pieces of evidence outside the controlled grid box. Young girls are dropping dead like flies or remaining permanently damaged after HPV vaccinations. I’m 72. I had one vaccination at 6 years – small pox. The booster administered shortly after gave me a vacation from school with chicken pox. No other vaccinations since, and no other infectious diseases either.

      Whether a minor or major factor – the risks are not worthy of submitting to vaccinations for childhood diseases that many have survived and emerged from with life long immunity, the type even vaccines can’t provide.

    I viewed the ireport just minutes before it went down. There were over 48 thousand views. Perhaps we need to send these stores to overseas outlets – we no longer have a very free press here. It is owned by those with the power of money. I also saw the moronic interview that Anderson Cooper did with Dr. Wakefield. Mr. Cooper admited he haden’t even read Dr. Wakefield’s book.

    My blog is down – may never go back up with Google’s foot dragging after repairing an issue that wasn’t caused by us. But happily I was introduced to this site from another true journalist – Jon Rappoport. I’m impressed by what I’ve seen on this site. Long live Celia Farber.

    Here is the article CNN took down. Be sure to watch the video the middle link takes you to, where you can hear the whistleblower talk about it.

    CDC Autism Whistleblower Admits Vaccine Study Fraud

    William W. Thompson, PhD, Senior Scientist with the CDC has stepped forward and admitted the 2004 paper entitled “Age at first measles-mumps-rubella vaccination in children with autism and school-matched control subjects: a population-based study in metropolitan Atlanta,” which has been used repeatedly by the CDC to deny the MMR-autism connection, was a fraud.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14754936

    Dr. Thompson has admitted the 340% increase in boys receiving the MMR vaccine “on time,” as opposed to delayed, was buried by himself, Dr. DeStefano, Dr. Bhasin, Dr. Yeargin-Allsopp, and Dr. Boyle.
    Dr. Thompson first called and spoke with Dr. Brian Hooker, who then revealed the information to Dr. Andrew Wakefield and the Autism Media Channel.

    The video containing Dr. Thompson’s recorded conversation can be found here, beginning at the 2 minute, 45 second mark.

    Update: The Autism Media Channel website has gone down.

    Update: Jon Rappoport is reporting Dr. Thompson was escorted from the CDC headquarters yesterday afternoon.

    Update: Autism Media Channel confirmed crash site was due to exceeding bandwith; no other reason.

    Update: Dr. Thompson himself responds to e-mail showing support for his act of speaking out:

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Thanks,

    Bill
