Note: The state motto of Montana is "Gold and Silver." Anne Dachel writes about the removal of a fair report on Vaxxed coming to Billings, Montana. Billings' population is about the same as the number of people in cars in a ten mile stretch of 95 here in Connecticut. A blip in the census. Seems the consensus is the same across the nation though - shut down thought, debate and Lord forbid, personal decision making. Big Sky Country meets Big Pharma for oro y plata.
Censorship in Billings, MT
By Anne Dachel
First of all, I was thrilled on July 4th to see amazingly GOOD COVERAGE about “Vaxxed” on KTVQ in Billings, MT.
“Vaxxed” is coming to Billings, a city of about 100,000.
July 4, 2017, KRVQ TV Billings: Some parents advise watching film on CDC and vaccines
A group of parents concerned about studies on vaccines encourage viewing a film next weekend in Billings.
"Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe" will be shown on Sunday.
The group said the film focuses on a Centers for Disease Control study that showed a link between the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism.
The parents said Dr. William Thompson and 13 others from the CDC came out and said the agency ignored the report.
The CDC website does not mention a connection between the vaccine and autism and states that severe problems are very rare.
One of the parents, who is also a nurse, said the group wants an investigation.
"First and foremost, I want to say this is not an anti-vaccine movie,” said Lori Gilbert Lee.
“It is far from it. It is more a documentary on the CDC and some fraudulent things that had gone on. They found that if the MMR is given after three years of age, the autism rate went way down. Why did they not recommend that we change the schedule?" she said.
KTVQ didn’t call “Vaxxed” an “anti-vaccine film.”
I posted several comments thanking KTVQ for this honest cover of the movie. I urged parents to see it and to realize “the science” from the CDC is not to be trusted.
I shared this with thousands on my Facebook and others did too.
SUDDENLY---The KTVQ story disappeared and was replaced with this:
Our Apologies:The page you requested is currently unavailable. Pages on this site are constantly being revised, updated, and occasionally removed. You may have followed an outdated link or have outdated pages in your browser cache.
So what happened? Why was the genuinely fair coverage removed? What pressure was put on KTVQ that they censored this issue? These are questions we all need to ask.
Despite my disappointment, I resolved to let the station know that parents do care about hearing the truth.
I sent this to the managers at KTVQ.
First of all, parents everywhere were very happy with the coverage on the upcoming showing of the film “Vaxxed” today on KTVQ. It was shared all over social media.
As Lori Gilbert Lee said in the interview, this is not “an anti-vaccine movie.” KTVQ’s coverage actually focused on the message of “Vaxxed.”
“Vaxxed” is about a government whistleblower speaking out about scientific fraud at our top health care agency. This is something every American needs to hear about.
CDC researcher Dr. William Thompson admitted in 2014 that he was ordered by his superiors to destroy research findings of a direct link between the MMR vaccine and the development of autism back in 2004.
This C-Span video from 2015 shows U.S. Congressman Bill Posey when he went to the floor of the House and pleaded with his fellow representatives to investigate the claims of corruption at the CDC: “So I ask Mr. Speaker, I beg, I implore my colleagues on the appropriations committees to please, please take such action.” Still two years later, no one in Washington has the courage to look into this critical issue.
What we’re now seeing on KTVQ is that this story has been removed from your site.
This is very troubling to parents.
Why are we not allowed to have an honest discussion of an issue that affects every child in America? Why was this story taken down?
