The Lies About Andrew Wakefield

March 25, 2016, Glamour: Tribeca Film Festival Will Screen Controversial Anti-Vaccine Film

Maggie Mallon From Glamour Magazine:

For those who may be unfamiliar with Wakefield, here's a little background on the British ex-physician. Formerly a gastroenterologist, Wakefield rose to prominence in the late 1990s after publishing a paper linking vaccines to autism—essentially single-handedly inciting the anti-vaccine movement. In a case study of only eight children, Wakefield suggested a connection between inflammatory bowl disease in children who had recently received the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine and the development of autism. ...

More recently, a 2015 study published by the American Medical Association found no link between vaccines and autism. ...

According to the Tribeca Film Festival website, Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe will "[dig] into the long-debated link between autism and vaccines" and include "revealing and emotional interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, parents, and one whistleblower to understand what's behind the skyrocketing increase of autism diagnoses today." One of the aforementioned doctors, pediatrician Jim Sears, insists he is pro-vaccination but does believe that the Center for Disease Control has engaged in widespread cover-up regarding links between MMR and autism. ...

The Tribeca Film Festival committee, however, stands by their choice. In a statement, a Tribeca spokeswoman said: "Tribeca, as most film festivals, are about dialogue and discussion. Over the years we have presented many films from opposing sides of an issue. We are a forum, not a judge."


Maggie Mallon, like most people reporting on the vaccine controversy, doesn't have her facts straight.

"...the British ex-physician. Formerly a gastroenterologist, ..."

Andrew Wakefield had his medical license taken away, no one could take away his medical degree.

Mallon said Wakefield's study included "only eight children." Actually there were twelve patients, and they were referred to Wakefield by their primary doctors. It was the parents of these children who reported that they were healthy, normally developing toddlers until they received the MMR vaccine.

Typically stories like this cite studies the reporters have never looked at.

"More recently, a 2015 study published by the American Medical Association found no link between vaccines and autism. ..."

Sure there are endless studies from our health care agencies and medical organizations, and these are faithfully reported in the press.

No one ever asks who funded the study or what conflicts of interest the researchers had. If Mallon looked into the study she cited, she'd see that it's connected to the vaccine industry.

Actually no one in the media has had an independent thought on this issue since Sharyl Attkisson left CBS News.

Mallon et al. refuse to honestly and thoroughly look into what can only be described as the most heated controversy in pediatric medicine.  

IF Mallon were really interested in telling the truth about what an unchecked, unsafe vaccine schedule is doing to our children, she'd actually contact Dr. Wakefield (and yes, he's STILL a doctor).  She would get a hold of Dr. Sears and hear what he has to say.

The media never does that. The truth is, this isn't journalism, it's propaganda.

Anne Dachel, Media editor: Age of Autism



Notice how not one of these articles mentions details about the contents of this documentary: that a senior scientist at the CDC said he and others there covered up data that origionally suggesting higher levels of autism in African American boys who got the MMR at a certain age? No, the articles just call it an "anti-vaccine" documentary. Ask yourselves why is that? Because that would make people want to learn more and they don't want people to want to learn more about the contents. They want people to get mad because it is "antivaccine".

I don't understand how any human being can learn that a senior scientist at the CDC has claimed this and not at least think the claim should be investigated. None of us should make up our minds one way or another until we have more information. But how can anyone who cares about kids not want more information? But there are so so many out there who actively advocate this not be investigated, which is amoral.

I remember Wakefield being interviewed by George Stephanopoulos (sp?) on live television. George was trying to poke holes in everything about Wakefield's book "Callous Disregard," but Wakefield made him all but admit that he had never fully read the book. I see things have yet to change!! I did receive assurance when Wakefield himself said that he was not going away.

Glam mags is where the dark side report science from these days..says it all..your face my ass.




That closing argument was brilliant, thanks for posting the link.

From where I'm sitting, the sleeping giant is definitely waking. And the harder they try to put it back to sleep…. the faster that awakening becomes.

Some people gonna be in some pretty deep shit soon.


Sick, biased media hopes to get their tentacles in all media, especially anything young women or men might read. It's social engineering. National Geographic is more than on board with the pharmaceutical agenda in running "Science"blogs...

These articles could all have been written by a bot for all we know. All of them ALL of them are cut and paste with zero actual info beyond the misleading "because that guy who did the study thingy was a fraud!1"

Also, who "reads" Glamour? It's the kind of thing that you flip through disdainfully while in a waiting room. This sort of "complete", to the point of ridiculousness, astroturf always points to a greater agenda.
