WATCH NOW: Truth in Media: CDC, Vaccines and Autism
Since 2014, Ben Swann has been investigating and reporting on the story of William Thompson, a CDC scientist who hired a whistleblower attorney and turned over to Congress thousands of pages of documents regarding a 2004 CDC study on autism and vaccines.
“Thompson is a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and has been with the CDC since 1998.
A statement released on August 27th by Dr. Thompson in response to media coverage is that he and co-authors from a 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics did in fact omit important information from a study on the link between vaccines and autism.
While Thompson goes on to explain that he believes that vaccines have saved and continue to save lives, he clearly admits that the CDC did in fact intentionally omit data that demonstrated a connection between an increased risk of autism in African American males who were giving the MMR vaccine before 36 months of age.
Thompson goes on to say that his reason for coming forward was because of conversations with Dr. Brian Hooker over the course of 10 months. Those conversations were about whether or not there is a connection between vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. Thompson clearly states that his hand was forced by Hooker who secretly recorded the conversations.”
Thompson later handed over the study documents to Congressman William Posey. One month ago, Posey’s office went on to give Swann access to these documents. In fact, Swann was the first journalist to receive the documents from Posey’s office.
Upon receiving those documents, Swann organized a team comprised of doctors, journalists, authors and former CDC specialists to analyze every single document that was handed over.
On Tuesday, January 26, 2016 Swann will release a Truth in Media documentary which details a study of CDC cover-up and suppression of medical findings. In addition, Swann will release the Thompson documents at TruthinMedia.com to anyone who wishes to learn more about what’s inside them.
