UPDATE: It’s been taken down.
It was apparently up for two hours, and had garnered 20,000 views and 5,000 shares, before it was deleted.
‘iReport” at CNN.com is an open, free form page that CNN normally does not vet, or take responsibility for, so this is strange indeed.

Truth Barrier is following the unfolding story of the media paralysis on the CDC MMR/Autism whistleblower, Dr. William W. Thompson, who has gone on record saying the CDC committed major scientific fraud to disguise an MMR/Autism connection–a fraud in which he himself became complicit. He now regrets his complicity very deeply.
We reported that “CNN iReport,” took the story down after it garnered some 45,000 views and 17,000 shares. “iReport,” it turns out, is an unregulated free space, not “vetted” by CNN under normal circumstances. It’s the equivalent of Facebook for CNN, meaning, anybody can publish and CNN is not responsible for the accuracy of the content.
The first story stayed up for 19 hours.
Let’s see how long this one stays up.
