This does not solve the “mystery” as to how Simmens’ review violated HuffPo’s guidelines. ARE there “ideological” guidelines for HuffPo? This raises more questions than it answers. But I am intrigued about this development. Perhaps I was too harsh on Huffington Post. Stay tuned.

“To All Following @lancesimmens or @vaxxedthemovie: I received an email from Arianna Huffington earlier today and my HuffPo account has been reinstated. Small victory. In reply I asked that she personally reconsider republishing my article Why Our Kids Will Hate Us as it merely asks for public escalation of the allegations of corruption in CDC in the documentary Vaxxed. The piece does not represent conspiracy theory, does not contain inaccurate medical information, and is not part of a widely known hoax as purported to be the guiding principles that determined the fate of my previous post. To not allow this freedom of expression to look into an issue does not represent the best of investigative journalism and should not be tolerated. People should be encouraged to see the documentary and judge for themselves just as they ought to be able to read my article and judge for themselves. There ought to be a national discussion of the issue.”
