We have excerpted an important message from Dr. Joseph Mercola. It's his response to a hit piece run "accidentally in draft mode" by The Washington Post's Lena Sun. WaPo has been vicious to families with vaccine injured children. I wrote a piece for them years ago - and they changed the headline in a way that was negative and not in keeping with the tone of my article. And they never paid me their paltry fee. Please read the full article and comment at Dr. Mercola's site Washington Post Publishes Defamatory Lies about Dr. Mercola.
Nutshell background from Dr. Mercola: August 9, 2019, I was contacted by Washington Post reporter Lena H. Sun about information for an article. To avoid my responses being misrepresented to support an industry narrative, I’m publishing her questions and my answers in full
December 2, 2019, I was again contacted with disingenuous questions. Washington Post claims they accidentally published a draft of the article on their site November 15, 2019, and are still editing the hit piece they’ve been working on since August
Amazon is currently censoring products that are critical of vaccines. Amazon founder and CEO Jeffrey Bezos bought The Washington Post in 2013
August 9, 2019, Washington Post reporter Lena H. Sun asked to interview me for an article she was writing about me. I was unable to accept due to speaking engagements, but I did respond to a series of questions in writing.
Considering Sun and the Washington Post’s history of publishing articles in favor of industry, I decided to publish all of the questions and my answers in full, to avoid misrepresentation. Toward the end of this article, you will find correspondence to Sun in its entirety.
In my August response, I also confronted Sun about The Washington Post's concerted efforts to "dig up dirt" on me and my company, as well as her failure to publish a correction to a vaccine story in which she made a false claim.
Nearly four months later, on December 2, 2019, I was contacted yet again by the Washington Post, asking me to answer additional questions. Oddly enough, we were already in receipt of the article with a publication date of November 15, 2019.1
These additional questions were disingenuous as they claim they had published a draft of the article, and they are now going to republish a fresh hit piece they've been putting together since August for the second time. I did not answer these additional questions, but will address the implications of some of them here.
The Washington Post reporters are really concerned with how much money I make selling vitamins, which is ironic considering the owner of Washington Post has admitted to selling and profiting off of FAKE supplements!
They’re also trying to portray the success of my website and my financial support of nonprofit health advocates such as the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) as having “fueled the largest measles outbreak in the United States in nearly 30 years,” calling the partnership between Mercola.com and NVIC “a new strategy for the anti-vaccine movement that is especially dangerous.”2
I have been asked many times to sell my website, which I’ve been told is worth over $100 million. I will never sell, and I’ve donated about $2 million of the revenue from this website each year to nonprofits committed to changing the landscape to make it easier for you to lead a healthier life.
The donations are more than the income they reported in the article. You can find these organizations at the bottom of each webpage. Read the full article and the hundreds of comments at Washington Post Publishes Defamatory Lies about Dr. Mercola.
