CDC whistleblower: behind the media blackout

Aside from a few bland stories about William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, the major media have maintained a forced blackout.

Thompson has publicly admitted he and his co-authors committed gross fraud in erasing a vaccine-autism connection.

Consider the explosive angles on this story, angles which would ordinarily rate front-page coverage and top billing on the evening news.

Thompson, in writing, has admitted fraud. He was a co-author of the cooked and slanted 2004 study, published in the prestigious journal, Pediatrics.

That study gave a free pass to the MMR vaccine, and falsely denied the vaccine had any causal connection to autism.

This never happens—an author of a key study comes out in the open and says he and his co-authors are guilty of malfeasance and fraud. Are you kidding? That alone equals a big story.

Two of Thompson’s co-authors, Colleen Boyle and Frank DeStefano, also happen to be major executives at the CDC, in the area of vaccine safety. That’s another bombshell element.

The journal Pediatrics has refused to retract the 2004 study. After consulting the other authors, but not Thompson, the journal stands by the study. That’s more malfeasance and fraud.

In 2004, Thompson wrote to the head of the CDC, Julie Gerberding, warning her that he would soon be presenting troubling data at a major vaccine-autism conference.

His meaning was clear. He had found an MMR vaccine-autism connection and was going to speak about it.

Gerberding never responded to Thompson’s letter. His presentation at the upcoming conference was canceled.

Five years later, Gerberding left the CDC. She went on to become the president of Merck Vaccines, a position she holds today.

Merck manufactures the MMR vaccine.

That vaccine was the subject of the fraudulent 2004 study, and was criminally given a free pass.

If you were constructing a scandal to blow up in the press, a scandal that would contain all the elements, you would be hard-pressed to do a better job.

But what we get is silence. All the way across the board.

Want more? In a video, Thompson states that he would never give a vaccine containing mercury to a pregnant woman. He says there is “biological plausibility” for mercury as a cause of autism.

Thompson and his co-authors on the 2004 study have also done other studies on vaccines. The CDC is reviewing none of them to see if they were fraudulent as well.

Let’s look at the reasons for the media blackout.

On one level, it’s all about the CDC, Thompson’s employer. The CDC is a major and continuing source for mainstream reporters. Irritate and anger that source, and you as a reporter are shut out from access in the future.

On another level, the mainstream press is utterly dependent on pharmaceutical advertising. Implicit and explicit threats of ad cancellations are enough to drive any media outlet to its knees, groveling and begging for forgiveness.

Yes, you will certainly find stories about pharma drug scandals in the press. But Thompson’s story strikes at the very heart of the medical complex: its claim to a scientific basis.

That supposed science is the foundation of “everything medical”—and it is reflected in studies published in peer-reviewed reputable journals.

Thompson isn’t coming in from the outside criticizing a published study. He was and still is working at the CDC, where the 2004 study was done. He’s an insider. He co-wrote the study.

He’s made a written confession of fraud re the study and released it through his attorney, Rick Morgan. He’s admitted to scientific fraud.

On yet another level, vaccines are a holy sacrament in the medical Church of Biological Truth.

Vaccines are lauded as the pre-eminent achievement of modern medicine.

The US government and its allies have, time and time again, asserted there is absolutely no connection between vaccines and autism.

And here is an insider, Thompson, who is essentially saying that is a lie.

He could be the key figure in unraveling fraud all the way through the vaccine establishment.

And finally, there is a constituency that already knows all about the lie: mothers and fathers of autistic children.

They know. They were there, when their happy, bright, alert children were vaccinated and then, their brains damaged, turned away from the world.

To publicly admit what these parents already know would set off a firestorm that would never end.

So the mainstream press remains willfully ignorant. Reporters, editors, and publishers aid and abet the ongoing crime of vaccine damage.

The entirety of mainstream media performs a specific function. It takes cues and orders from elites who are intent on building Reality for the masses, and it transmits that Reality on a continuing basis. There are certain stories which, if exposed, would engender contagion.

That is, such stories would not only reveal one set of secrets, they would suggest that other pillars of the overall false Reality are rotting as well.

The prime directive of major media: this contagion must never be allowed to happen.

Thus, the William Thompson saga is buried.

However, with enough pressure from alternative media, parents of autistic children, and the awakening public, surprises can occur.

Certainly, the exit from major media, by more and more of its audience, can accelerate beyond any possibility of top-down control.

All their boats, swamped.

This, in fact, is what happened during the 2009 Swine Flu hoax. Millions of people ignored the CDC’s fake science and demands to take the vaccine—and the “level-6 global pandemic” was revealed as a dud.

Stay tuned.
