The news site, The New American reviewed the film we’re all familiar with, “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe," and unlike every mainstream media outlet, The New American actually told the the story of corruption, fraud, and cover-up surrounding our vaccine program, which is the essence of “Vaxxed.”
That's not how the every other news source has treated this film.
In 7 things about vaccines and autism that the movie ‘Vaxxed’ won’t tell you, The Washington Post called “Vaxxed” “an anti-vaccination documentary,” and reminded readers that studies show no link, while devoting most of the story to trashing Andrew Wakefield. That was in May, 2016.
Last March, The New York Times covered “Vaxxed” in Pulled From Festival, Anti-Vaccination Film Will Run in Theater. The Times omitted the real story of “Vaxxed,” and cited William Thompson as a “former center employee” and Andrew Wakefield as “Mr. Wakefield.” Reporter Melena Ryzik said “Vaxxed” was wrong because “the C.D.C. has already stated unequivocally that ‘vaccines do not cause autism.’”—Clearly The Times published what they were told, which was to cover up the real story of “Vaxxed.”
Now look at The New American. Here’s a refreshing example of honest and thorough reporting on the REAL STORY of “Vaxxed.”

After watching the new documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, it is easy to see why the establishment is trying so hard to make sure you never watch it. At the very least, the movie raises some extremely troubling questions that absolutely must be answered, as quickly as possible. If the experts, doctors, parents, and others interviewed in the 91-minute film are even partially correct, millions of lives are being needlessly destroyed, and the cost to taxpayers will likely reach into the trillions of dollars.
But the movie does more than just raise troubling questions. It exposes a conspiracy — and yes, that is the correct term — involving top officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to deliberately conceal data showing a causal link between vaccines and autism. If proven in a court of law, America and humanity have been victims of a crime of monumental proportions that must be dealt with as harshly as possible.
...the film introduces Dr. William Thompson, senior scientist at CDC. He became a whistleblower after finding out that the CDC was omitting important data on vaccines. “We lied about the scientific findings,” Thompson can be heard saying in a recording played in the film. “The CDC can no longer be trusted to do vaccine safety work.”
The saga began in 2004, when Thompson led a CDC study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its potential link to autism. The CDC “omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics,” Thompson admitted in a 2014 letter. Essentially, the data that was concealed from the public revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Documents were later destroyed, too.
Government scientists are also exposed in e-mails seemingly discussing covering up the data showing the links between vaccines and autism. In fact, according to whistleblower Thompson, CDC officials destroyed the documents showing the links. “That's what I keep seeing again and again and again, where these senior people do completely unethical, vile things and no one holds them accountable,” Thompson says in a voice recording. Unsurprisingly, none of the CDC officials implicated in the scandal were willing to be interviewed for Vaxxed....
Newman actually reported on who’s who in “Vaxxed,” from naming William Thompson, Brian Hooker, and Andrew Wakefield, to Stephanie Seneff, Bill Posey, and Dave Weldon. The details Newman included are stunning, especially when compared to the pathetic coverage of “Vaxxed” by mainstream news outlets.
The contrast between the authentic and phony news on “Vaxxed” shows the truly shameful reporting that passes for journalism in America today.
I congratulate Alex Newman on rising above media propaganda. My only criticism is about the title, New Film Suggests Link Between Vaccines and Autism. To really capture the message of "Vaxxed," the title should say something like, New Film Reveals Government Cover-up of Vaccines/Autism Link. It isn't just that there's a link, but that officials knew about it years ago, destroyed the evidence, and have been lying about it ever since.
