On Aug 20, 2014, just after the announcement of a whistleblower from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention speaking out about that agency's cover-up of an MMR study linking the vaccine to autism, Gary Franchi talked about it on his independent TV station, WHDT Miami/Boston. For those of us who routinely follow how the mainstream media covers the controversial link between vaccines and autism, this was riveting.
Franchi began his commentary saying, "There's a new whistleblower on the autism forefront and Dr. Brian Hooker from the Focus Autism Foundation says he has a source inside the CDC."
In his two and a half minute presentation Franchi described how Hooker had used the Freedom of Information Act to ask the CDC for information concerning a certain autism-vaccine study they'd conducted, and while doing this, an insider at the agency "reached out to him" about what he knew about the falsification of the results.
Franchi made stunning statements like these:
"The CDC is purposely hiding important information about autism, particularly how vaccines affect young black boys at a much higher rate than others. ...
"It appears the CDC was purposely blocking black kids from the study to boost their numbers....
"The source tells Hooker that his superior management has manipulated studies for years, only showing numbers that supports their narratives. ...
"The same people who Americans are supposed to trust for vaccine safety are directly tied to strong financial backing from the same corporations they're supposed to critique."
I was able to contact Franchi to find out more. First of all, this report wasn't his first on the vaccine controversy. There are others:

Aug 28, 2013, How to Get Back-to-School Vaccine Waivers - Dr. Mayer Eisenstein
It's Back-to-School season and vaccines are getting pumped into children, but do you need to get vaccinated to go to school? Can you get a vaccine waiver? Can you write your own? Dr. Mayer Eisenstein joins us to dispel the myths and teach you how to opt-out.
I asked Franchi how he became interested in this subject and this is his response:
"Naturally skeptical about anything mandatory in a free society I've questioned many things over the years. I had learned about the dangers of vaccine ingredients through experts like Dr. Mayer Eisenstein and Dr. Sherri Tenpenny.
"Then being a new father I was faced with making the decisions based on the threats I had learned.
"The only opposition I've faced is when my wife and I sought a Pediatrician for our newborn. We visited many doctors who used intensive fear tactics and refused to deviate from the vaccine schedule let alone not vaccinate at all. Most were not concerned about our wishes as parents and instead treated us with disdain for even questioning their perceived authority. Eventually we found a doctor who cared, would listen, and let us make the ultimate decision.
"Other opposition has been from debate with closed minded individuals who choose to ignore reality."
I know we can expect more great coverage from this outstanding newsman.
