Dachel Media Update: Alisyn Camerota To Anchor at CNN

Online newsBy Anne Dachel OurKids ad 2013

This was surprising to see today.  

Alisyn Camerota is a hero to the autism community because she provided some of the best coverage of the vaccines/autism topic when she was at Fox News.

In 2010, she was recognized as Journalist of the Year at Age of Autism. 

(You can find links to her reports on the Age of Autism story.)

Her move to CNN naturally raises concerns for us.  Will she be allowed to honestly and thoroughly report on the continuing controversy surrounding vaccines at a network that has produced some of the most biased and vindictive coverage in the past?

We wish Alisyn well and hope that she will able to raise the standards of journalism at CNN and show them what fair and balanced really means.

CNN: Veteran anchor and reporter Alisyn Camerota has joined CNN Worldwide as an anchor.  She begins today.  Camerota comes to CNN after 16 years at FOX News Channel, which she left in March.

"I have been a fan of Alisyn's for a very long time, and couldn't be happier that she has agreed to come to CNN," said Jeff Zucker, President, CNN Worldwide.  "She is not only a seasoned journalist with a great curiosity and passion for the news, but she has a presence on camera that I think is very hard to find.  I can't wait to have her on the air at CNN."

Camerota will contribute to all programs across CNN.  A permanent role will be announced in the coming months.

The golden rule he who has the gold rules (big pharma)for a period of time but the Bible says you cannot escape reaping the harvest of what you have planted, so in the end no one can escape justice.
I hope she was not driven from Fox because of her reporting on vaccines but it would not surprise me. Those that hold true to the religion of vaccines are scary people.

I am glad she has a job - she has spoke up and paid the price - that is all I can ask of one human being. My guess is she will now be good -- I know what poor is - and scared of having nothing - being closed out of your career.

This is the worse thing that you can do to a person -- I would love to see this happen to the head of government agencies and pharma --- if only I could see that I would have my justice.
