In a remarkable turn of events, after a weekend that included a total of three reports on CDC Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson being deleted from CNN’s iReport page, the first two have been reinstated, presumably following review from CNN.
This means de facto that the mainstream media magic carpet prayer– suggesting Thompson’s claims could not be verified– is not going to arrive.
CNN emerges as so far the only mainstream media outlet or TV network that is capable of reporting reality when it turns out they had been wrong on a major story. For this they should be commended.
Major media, largely supported by the pharmaceutical industry as main sponsor, has unanimously and consistently backed the “vaccines are perfectly safe” argument and abusively attacked parents of damaged children as “anti-vaxxers.” They have also pummeled the argument that British gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew Wakefield committed “fraud” as per free-lance journalist Brian Deer’s foaming persecutions. The 1998 Lancet paper at the center of the controversy has since been cleared in a British High Court, along with, preposterously, some, but not all, of the paper’s 13 authors.
Now it would appear the roles have been reversed, and it is the pro-vaccine crowd that must deal with allegations of very serious fraud, form inside the CDC itself. (The second major fraud scandal involving criminality to hit the CDC in recent years.)
Except they are not “allegations,” like those made by Brian Deer against Wakefield. These “allegations” are documented, in papers that scientist, and father of a vaccine injured child, Dr. Brian Hooker, obtained by way of FOIA requests, later confirmed by the whistleblower himself–Dr. Thompson.
Many of the parties involved have the documents, and the results have been summarized in a scientific paper published by Dr. Hooker in early August, which you can read here.
