ATTENTION: The report that Tim Cunningham, ScD, the CDC scientist found dead today, was questioning the vaccine program is FAKE NEWS.
The idea that his disappearance may be linked to comments made about the flu shot is a sourceless claim made by notable fake news publisher Your News Wire, and writer Baxter Dimitry, who has now made a habit of manufacturing quotes to bolster the vaccine corruption story. Of course it does not help our cause, because it is fake news. (Not linking so as not to spread the false story.)
In January Dimitry posted a story that claimed that, "A CDC doctor has warned this year’s “disastrous” flu shot may be responsible for the deadly flu epidemic sweeping the country.
“Some of the patients I’ve administered the flu shot to this year have died,” the doctor said, adding “I don’t care who you are, this scares the crap out of me.”
“We have seen people dying across the country of the flu, and one thing nearly all of them have in common is they got the flu shot.”
That quote was not a named source, it didn't say to whom and where the statement was made, and held no credibility.
Then the following month when Cunningham went missing, suddenly Dimitry announced that he was the anonymous doctor:
"In January, Dr. Cunningham shared his opinion that this year’s flu shot was behind the deadly outbreak of the flu, while warning that if his name was attached to the widely-circulated quotes, he would lose his job – or suffer an even worse fate.
Understanding the dangers involved in speaking out about vaccines in the current climate, we granted him anonymity in the article. However Dr. Cunningham told us we should go public should anything happen to him."
Again, no details on the statement, the meeting, what else was said, any proof of anything. No credible source.
And if Dimitry actually had this conversation with Cunningham, then why did he not go to the police and offer testimony and proof when Cunningham went missing? The police themselves have said there is no evidence that the doctor was critical of vaccine policy. Dimitry cares so much that he published the claim, but not enough to prove this claim to the authorities? When a man's life is in jeopardy?
And honestly, the claim is just silly. A CDC scientist wants to express doubts about vaccine safety, so he chooses to do so to... a fringe news site? Not the Atlanta Journal Constitution, not Bill Posey, Not in public at the ACIP meeting, not Sharyl Attkisson, best vaccine reporter who even has her own show, and not even Ben Swann, amazing vaccine reporter who is in Atlanta and he could simply have coffee with and spill his guts. He doesn't even call William Thompson, who is still at the CDC, and ask for advice?
He thinks, "International vaccine scandal? I must contact Dimitri Dimitry at YourNewsWire! I mean, I fear for my life, and I could just get Thompson's lawyers to record my statements and get me whistleblower protection, but that seems like a lot of trouble. I am sure YourNewsWire will protect me from murder."
The same thought process I guess when Justin Timberlake decided to finally declare his anti-vaccine status to Dimitry rather than People, TMZ, the LA Times or Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Because Dimitry wrote that, “The whole concept of mandatory vaccination schedules is un-American,” according to Justin Timberlake, who says “Why risk damaging your precious child for the sake of the herd?”
“Take care of your own child. That is your duty. That is your God given right,” said Justin Timberlake, while readying himself for his long-awaited Super Bowl Halftime show appearance. “If everyone took care of their own children, we wouldn’t have to worry about taking care of the herd, or making anything mandatory, or any of that communist stuff.”
“I’d also like to know,” continued the Cry Me A River hitmaker, “why a child who has been ‘immunized’ is not actually immune to the disease… Why are these kids are always catching the very disease they are supposedly immune to?… and they spread these diseases too…”
“And yet sanctimonious parents of immunized kids, they get on their soap box and say my unvaccinated child is a threat to their child? Get a grip already. Isn’t your child supposed to be immune?”
Of course this interview never happened either. But feel free to believe that an international pop star paused his preparations for a Super Bowl Halftime show to grant a career ending interview to Baxter Dimitry of Your News Wire.
It is terrible that Cunningham has died. And CDC is acting a bit fishy. I hope that we get answers now that he has been found, but let's not spread fake news that he was a whistleblower. There is no evidence that he was. People in our community have been looking for such evidence since Dr. Cunningham went missing. Unless and until some reputable source comes to light that he was questioning the CDC's vaccine program, our community should show Dr. Cunningham and his family the dignity that they are due, and not spread false rumors about the late public servant.
Should any new relevant information come to light, we at Age of Autism will be sure to share it with our readers.
Our condolences to the Cunningham family, and to all of Dr. Cunningham's loved ones.
