I saw the smug self satisfied smirk throughout the press conference.
Gee Evan no one likes to a spoilt brat.

If these vaccines are so safe why is it that there is not a single insurance underwriter who will offer compensation in the event of vaccine induced death or injury. Bankrupting liable suits for vaccine injury and death had reduced the number of vaccine manufacturers to three by 1987. This is why the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System was created. Since then, thanks to the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program - legislated in 1987 - over 2 billion dollars have been paid out to compensate vaccine damaged and killed children and adults.

Money talks.

"Statements by Moody and Wakefield TO THE EFFECT that Michael Rutter was paid by vaccine manufacturers"

-Caps mine.

LAB funding was petitioned to Rutter by lawyers for pharma, so to that effect, Rutter was paid by vaccine manufacturers. Whether or not he was advised to sue remains irrelevant.

David Brown

Statements by Moody and Wakefield to the effect that Michael Rutter was paid by vaccine manufacturers for expert testimony are FALSE. Even the complaint names only the LAB and the US government as approaching him for testimony. Rutter has been advised to SUE if these allegations are not openly admitted to be false.

Jim,
You are an incredible voice of truth! The government and the medical establishment should take heed--this is not a win for them. Our side is on the offensive and all the lies and cover-up will be exposed.

Thank you Mr. Moody for your fantastic job and continued fight for our children and Dr Wakefield, Dr Walker-Smith and Dr Murch.
Is it ok that I would like to smack the guy in the back ground? I know who it is and the eye rolling is extremely mature. This is who some of the people in the UK look up to as an MP? Eeee Gadsssss. Yes, the muturity level is astounding. Truly.

Ladies and Gentlemen of AOA:

I urge you to take a little surf over to Daily Kos where, all day today, one of the top-rated diaries has been: "Anti-Vaccine Doctor 'Acted Unethically'" by diarist Rimjob.

Prepare yourself for a comment section that boils with hatred of Wakefield, DAN, AOA and our community in general. You will wonder hell you have wandered into. It is not for the weak.

Of the nearly 700 comments on this "liberal" and "Democratic" blog, virtually every one contributes to the lynch mob mentality that is, literally, calling for the arrest, imprisonment, and physical torture of Dr. Wakefield. I am totally serious.

The GMC ruling has unleashed the Beast. The Beast is reptilian fear, irrationality, hatred, and blind unblinking faith in official dogma.

Yesterday I was talking w/a neighbor who had vaccinated her (now 9 year old) son according to the CDC "rites" and her son is OK...I was expecting her to defend her decision but instead she said she knew she was just lucky, knew about the 1 in 60 rate, etc. The truth is out there and people know it. The Big Liars will be found out.

Jim, you're magnificent!

Nice Speech! Awesome job. One of the signs in the background really summed it up nicely.

"Guilty of helping our damaged kids".

That's it in a nutshell.

This is nothing short of obscene. I don't know where the greater frustration lies for me...with the corrupt system, pharma, initimidated peds--or--the people who ask me to explain what's happening to us, in this country, in the UK, what is happening to these doctors. They stand in front of me sort of annoyed as if to say, "I guess that's bad...but... what are YOU getting so worked up about?"

The greatest lesson I have learned on this journey so far: The power of denial is greater than autism itself.

Sidenote--Teresa I have nary a clue what your literary acredentials are but I must tell you are THE BEST armchair investigative-watchdog journalist I have ever read! PLEASE KEEP GOING!

Jim Moody absolutely RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROCKS !!!!!

Jake Crosby

Jim Moody summed the proceedings up perfectly, and all Harris could do was throw out the standard, denialist "no evidence" claim.

Red Rover, Red Rover, Let Glaxo and Merk come over. We will stand stong and not break our bond and you will fail in your greedy plot to prevent true science from flourishing. We shall overcome with peace, care, knowledge, and love for the people of the planet.

Jim Moody does a fantastic job in explaining the facts about false testimony and the complaint being presented by many autism organizations both here and in the UK.

The man with the wild eyes and inappropriate smile is no innocent bystander. He is Dr. Evan Harris MP who has an interesting connection. I am sure we will hear more about that but here is a link to a blog that he started that has some questionable accusations.

This is a part of a post from that blog. It is well written and I think shows a strategy that Evan and so many others use. She is directing her comment to Evan:


Dr Andrew Wakefield and the MMR Scare – Evan on C4 News
http://drevanharrismp.wordpress.com/2010/01/29/dr-andrew-wakefield-and-the-mmr-scare-evan-on-c4-news/#comment-204

"We have asked if we can have the single vaccines on the NHS but have been told that we cannot even though our doctor said that he could not rule out the possibility that the MMR had contributed to our daughter’s autism.

I therefore watched the Channel 4 News item with interest. I am well aware of your stance on this issue which I respect. You are entitled to your view. Your conduct though I do not find acceptable. Frankly I do not understand where you are coming from on this. You are prefectly entitled to attack the science, to express your view that the MMR is safe but I think your are wrong, and in fact do yourself no favours, when you start attacking the integrity of Andrew Wakefield and others who share Wakefield’s concerns about the safety of the MMR. You have stopped playing the ball and are now playing the man.

I personally have no doubt at all that Andrew Wakefield is a decent, honest man who has genuine concerns about the safety of the MMR and is committed to finding out what has caused the autism and bowel disorders in children like our daughter. The most serious finding against him by the GMC is essentially that he treated the children in the study like guinnea pigs. It is therefore extraordinary, is it not, that not one parent of those children has complained about him? Your comments about the parents being in distress and that he took advantage of them is the sort of patronising nonsense that I am afraid is rather typical of the medical profession, and certainly is something we got in spades from our GP when our daughter was disgnosed.

But more serious. I felt, were your comments about the individual (I don’t know his name) who appeared on the show alongside you. You accused him, without showing any evidence to back up your claims, of seeking to make a profit at the expense of public health by advocating, and offering single vaccines. In effect you accused him of being motivated purely by money. This is clearly defamatory. How on earth can you be so sure that money is his primary motive to make such a serious allegation as that on live TV? And you appear to be proud of it too judging from this website! I would like to give our son single vaccines but cannot. If I wanted to vaccinate my son against measles I would have to go to a private clinic. Can you not see the absurdity of accusing an individual of profiteering in this way, when, if he and Wakefield and others had their way, the single vaccines would be available on the NHS? The individual on the wshow came across as a more reasonable and plasuible person than you.

I have lodged an official complaint about this with your party."
