Note: Anne Dachel says, "For a journalist, Carlson seems way too naïve here. Remember Vioxx?" It's not always easy to know what's real and what's for ratings on TV news today. If you watched reports yesterday, Alex Jones admitted the Sandy Hook shooting was real after telling his viewers and listeners for years that it was fake. I live 12 miles down the road from Sandy Hook. I know families who lost loved ones. It was a horror, not a hoax. We're often lumped in with extremists because we talk about vaccine injury and vaccine induced autism. And sometimes "we" lump ourselves in with them by doing interviews with them. Ann takes Tucker Carlson to task for his reporting on Alzheimer's research.
Update from Anne:
Let me add something to this story.
Five years ago Tucker Carlson interviewed Robert Kennedy, Jr. and I wrote about it for Age of Autism. Carlson allowed Kennedy to talk about the sleazy history of vaccine safety.
The ending of the interview was as follows:
Carlson: “So why has the point you’re making, that doesn’t seem crazy, been so discredited?
“Could it be because the spokesmen for that point of view tend to be actresses from Hollywood or actors who don’t seem to know much about the topic and are against all vaccinations?”
Kennedy: “I think that cohort is out there, but it’s very, very small.
“I’m called ‘anti-vax’ all the time because the pharmaceutical industry is so powerful both with the media—they give $5.4 billion a year to the media, and they’ve gotten rid of the lawyers, so there’s no legal interest in those cases. They have really been able to control the debate and silence people like me.
“I’m very grateful to you for having the courage to allow me on the show and talk.
“This is the second show in ten years that’s allowed me to talk about this.
“The other one being Bill Maher, which doesn’t take advertising.”
Carlson: “I just think it’s interesting, and above all, I think you ought to be allowed to ask legitimate questions without being attacked because I think that’s the basis of democracy.”
Kennedy: “We ought to be having a responsible debate. A debate that doesn’t scare people, but a debate that is real and it’s based on science.”
Carlson: “Well, I hope you start one.”
This shows how difficult it is to tell the truth about vaccines.
Recently this brief story aired on Fox:
Tucker Carlson exposes fraudulent data behind Alzheimer’s research
For decades scientists told us something called sticky plaques in the brain caused Alzheimer’s, which is one of the most devastating illnesses there is.
And then recently a Vanderbilt University neuroscientist, along with Science Magazine, took a closer at these sticky plaques, and they found, “shockingly blatant instances of fraud, fraudulent data,” according to Donna Wilcox who works in Alzheimer’s at the University of Kentucky.
It was fraudulent, and yet the FDA has continued to approve Alzheimer’s drugs that assume sticky plaques are the cause of Alzheimer’s, even when the FDA’s own advisory panel said those drugs don’t work.
What is going on here?
Of course, for any of us who’ve lived with the damage from unchecked, unsafe vaccines and know well the extent of the corruption, collusion and cover-up involving federal health officials, the media, doctors, the pharmaceutical industry and elected officials, this is nothing new. We might smile faintly while shaking our heads at Carlson’s words.
For a journalist, Carlson seems way too naïve here. Remember Vioxx? This is standard practice on the part of all the players who are making money from an out-of-control industry what runs the whole show. Carlson is a member of the profession that has lied to the public for decades about what vaccines are doing to children.
What is noteworthy is that researcher Donna Wilcox is speaking out. She is the rarest of all the players. Almost no one tells the truth about what the pharmaceutical industry really does.
