VAXXED: FROM COVER-UP TO CATASTROPHE Description

The full panel assembled for Tribeca

The same key sources rounded up for the Tribeca Festival will form a panel after the show in the small screen area in front of the 299 seats in this cosy cinema in a three window wide, three floor brownstone, including Andrew Wakefield the much maligned but heroically unbowed researcher who first raised the alarm about MMR and autism in a BMJ paper about MMR and infant gut problems, when autism showed up in 8 out of 12 affected children.

Judging from his clear eyed and steady gaze, and the uncompromised intelligence of his stance on MMR use, Andrew Wakefield always seemed trustworthy - and now is vindicated by revelations in his film of egregious data erasure by the CDC

Wakefield was hounded out of medicine by the investigation of the London Science Times correspondent Brian Deer, who after seven years managed to get Wakefield’s medical license cancelled for allegedly fraudulent dealings which had no real bearing on the actual science of his paper, or the issue. it seems clear. The paper was withdrawn by the BMJ, although nothing in it was disproved, and responsibility for any alleged flaws in the arrangements of the study was shared by 11 other coauthors, one of whom sued at high cost to fend off the loss of license and reputation and won, thus by implication vindicating Wakefield and the others.

The Deer’s work on the topic and his allegations are fully assembled at his site briandeer.com. Wakefield’s defense against all this attack is contained in his two books which are available at this page. Up to date material on Brian Deer’s performance is available at Truth Barrier written by investigative journalist Celia Farber and at Age of Autism:An Elaborate Fraud Part III: A Mother of Two Autistic Children Demands Accountability From the British Medical Journal

Here are the panelists’ bios for the Q/A immediately following the Players Theater screening today at 2pm-4.30pm:

New York Times Coverage of the affair since its beginning

We watched the movie ‘Vaxxed’ so you don’t have to: STAT reporter reviewer struggles to avoid the main point of the film, aided by editor who slaps on a headline amusingly reminiscent of the Nature editor who famously adopted the same stance in dealing with Peter Duesberg on the HIV/AIDS error.
