Sept 9, 2014, Pittsburgh Post Gazette: NOVA documentary tackles debate over vaccines

Orlando Sentinel 

U.S. Rep. Bill Posey has been curious for a while about whether there's been enough research into alleged links between childhood immunizations and autism, and now his office has a cache of documents from a CDC scientist who said his research was tainted.

Posey's Congressional office is reviewing somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 documents, including research statistics, it obtained from Dr. William Thompson, who has complained that the CDC withheld some of his data that may have suggested a link.

This is brief.  They use cautious words like "curious" and "tainted," and this is news about an elected official from Florida, so it's local interest.

BUT...THIS IS MAINSTREAM MEDIA and there's no dismissal of what the whistleblower had to say.  I posted a comment.

When asked for details about its review process and why Thompson wasn't consulted, the Pediatrics spokeswoman would only say, "The journal takes allegations of the use of fraudulent data seriously" and that it "investigated the allegations in accordance with the Committee on Publication Ethics guidelines and has decided that a retraction is not warranted."

I remember a number of times over the last 10 years when I actually heard back from a reporter I'd written to and they would tell me why they didn't accept any of the information I'd sent on vaccines.  It didn't matter what studies I provided or experts I cited, they still supported all the official claims.  My favorite line, which I heard from several reporters, was "I stand by what I wrote," as if those noble sounding words settled the issue.  This reminds me of that. 

Pediatrics has a "Committee on Publication Ethics"?   Too bad they don't have one on "Criminal Cover-Up,"  I think this is a little more serious than violating rules of conduct.

New PBS documentary carefully delivers transparent vaccine message to viewers. ...  

NOVA viewers transition into a segment of the documentary that addresses one of the greatest medical fallacies of them all: vaccinations and its misleading link to autism. The film introduces an insightfully well-spoken Alison Singer, president and co-founder of the Autism Science Foundation, along with her daughter Jodie, who has autism and is severely impaired because of it. Singer cites the overwhelming scientific evidence refuting a link between vaccines and autism and discusses the lingering effects of public perception from a long-discredited study.   

Saying it over and over: "Vaccines are safe, vaccines save lives," just isn't cutting it.  Doing an entire documentary with that message won't really matter.  There are just too many sick and disabled children that no one can explain.

Pittsburgh Post Gazette 

Enter what are called the "anti-vaxxers" - Jenny McCarthy and a growing minority of parents - who question vaccine safety and feed enough fear to cause a worrisome decline in immunization rates nationwide. 

NOVA addresses this controversy in "Vaccines -- Calling the Shots," which airs at 9 p.m. Wednesday on PBS. The balanced look at the importance of vaccines gently but clearly concludes that vaccines are safe and effective, but without dodging or downplaying the mild, occasional serious and rare deadly risks vaccines can pose....

But the anti-vaxxers are a vocal group and they have made an ever-growing minority of parents wary of vaccines....

Autism spectrum disorders are a key concern of anti-vaxxers, despite 30 studies that have debunked any link between vaccines and autism. Alison Singer, president of the Autism Science Foundation, encourages parents to have their children with autism immunized while saying she understands why pained parents embrace such explanations. 

NOVA is a promoting the tired dogma..."vaccines are safe, vaccines save lives."  The whistleblower exposed the truth that WE DON'T KNOW IF VACCINES ARE REALLY SAFE.  We now know about study results that were faked.   And that's just ONE STUDY.  Imagine what else is yet to be revealed.  I posted two comments.

Vaccine Information

A 1/1,000,000 rate is sheer fantasy because the known risk from the injection process itself- receiving an improperly dosed, defective, contaminated, or even a substituted drug- is greater than that figure. The Senate just had hearings about the fact that medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death- yet somehow vaccines are magically exempt? False- the oral Rotavirus is being injected- how much bigger mistake is there? http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6304a4.htm Vaccines are not manufactured by Elves and administered by Angels- they are some of the most complex manufactured pharmaceutical products created. A conventional drug may contain 1 to 3 active ingredients. Vaccines have live, attenuated, killed, and fragmented biological components, preservatives, adjuvants, emulsifiers, antibiotics, etc. Yet they are somehow safer than aspirin?
But- even at 1/mil, considering the half billion or so doses administered every year- that would still mean some 500 seriously injured people. Where are they? Where is a legitimately harmed person that the vaccine authority concedes was injured by a vaccine or the vaccination process?
Public Health Canada used to openly publish injury rates on their website and in weekly surveillance reports, until they were being linked to by vaccine safety proponents. It was 10 / mil.
Universal Vaccination requires injury rates so low as to be near theoretical, so even Canada's 1/100k was too much.

I wish that PBS and the doctor who said that serious adverse reactions to vaccines are 1 in 1,000,000 would be held liable for lying. Simply reading vaccine "safety" trials data would reveal what a gross and heinous lie that is, especially considering how few subjects are typically used, and that there are always some serious adverse reactions (not to mention that the public is not privy to how much data is omitted and/or manipulated, as we are learning thanks to Dr. Thompson of the CDC...typically data that show serious adverse reactions).

I continue to take comfort in knowing that if a parent wants to educate herself/himself and is searching for non-industry-produced information about vaccines, it is now out there in spades for the taking. If parents choose to ignore such information, they will have to learn the hard way.
