Watch the CNN Coverup Story here.
CNN just dropped the bomb many of us have been waiting for: pure denial. They have been waiting patiently for the journal -- Transactional Neurodegeneration -- which published the historical study on the link between autism and MMR vaccine to retract, redact and otherwise deny the truth of the study.
For the record, we contacted the editor-in-chief of Transactional Neurodegeneration, Professor Shengdi Chen tonight, with this communication:
Professor Shengdi Chen,
Your recent decision to remove Dr. Hooker's article published in your journal Transactional Neurodegeneration online has been cause of great concern among stakeholders in the scientific, journalistic and legal community here in the U.S., due to a top CDC vaccine safety expert -- William Thompson -- confessing under the advice of legal counsel today that the CDC manipulated and/or omitted data used in Dr. Hooker's study that falsified a link between African-American children and the diagnosis of autism in those receiving the MMR vaccine before 36 months of age versus those receiving it after 36 months.
While it is feasible that you made the decision for scientific, ethical, and precautionary reasons, as you state on your journal's website:
"This article has been removed from the public domain because of serious concerns about the validity of its conclusions. The journal and publisher believe that its continued availability may not be in the public interest. Definitive editorial action will be pending further investigation."
...the decision raises concerns as to your culpability in a cover-up.
You should know that your decision is being perceived as a threat to the credibility of your journal and career as an esteemed scientist.
Given the legal implications of your decision to potentially collude with a now verified cover-up involving the falsification of scientific data related to vaccine science and autism, would you be willing to make a statement to defend your decision?
I have copied a wide range of legal, journalistic and scientific stakeholders in this communication, and hope you can clear up what appears to be a precautionary decision on your part, which I hope can be clarified in detail on your part.

The CNN report, which while disturbing, is entirely consistent with their stance on promoting misinformation about the clearly documented dangers of vaccines, verifies the true gravity of this debacle.
They waited, patiently, to spin the story in a way that advocates for widespread, lemming-like obeyance to the CDC's one-size-fits-all vaccination schedule, that has been linked to the U.S.'s abysmal infant mortality rate, not to mention burgeoning autism incidence, now afflicting 1 in every 68 children born in this country.
Tonight, we also sent the following communication to the Cheautism listserve, addressing our concerns about the link between the MMR and autism, titled "Confirmed: Wakefield/Hooker's whistle blower and others at the CDC did falsify vaccine/autism data":
Today, a press release posted on the website of CDC whistle blower William Thompson's legal representation, Frederick M. Morgan,Jr., Morgan Verkamp, revealed that Andrew Wakefield and Dr. Hooker's initial claims about malfeasance at the CDC are, broadly speaking, true. In William Thompson's own words:
STATEMENT OF WILLIAM W. THOMPSON, Ph.D., REGARDING THE 2004 ARTICLE EXAMINING THE POSSIBILITY OF A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MMR VACCINE AND AUTISM
"My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, where I have worked since 1998.
I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed...
My concern has been the decision to omit relevant findings in a particular study for a particular sub group for a particular vaccine. There have always been recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with receipt of those vaccines."
As those of you who have been following this unfolding story, covered only in the alternative media, are aware that there has not been a single mainstream or even hybrid media report on the topic thus far, adding to the growing suspicion that this coverup stretches far beyond the CDC to the global mainstream media. As revealed today, the very journal that published Dr. Hooker's study on the 3.4 fold increase in risk of autism in African-American boys who received the MMR before 36 months of age vs. those who received it after 36 months -- Transitional Neurodegeneration -- removed the article entirely from its website, with the explanation:
"This article has been removed from the public domain because of serious concerns about the validity of its conclusions. The journal and publisher believe that its continued availability may not be in the public interest. Definitive editorial action will be pending further investigation." [see journal comment]
Now that the link between MMR vaccine and autism has been thrust into public attention by one of the CDC's own top vaccine scientists -- at the very top of the evidence- and health authority food chain – and not just the growing number of parents who, after directly witnessing their infants or children undergo sudden neurodevelopmental regression during the most intense vaccination window in life (2-15 months) and who were subsequently slapped with an idiopathic, presumably genetically-based 'autism' or 'autism spectrum disorder' diagnosis by their pediatricians, the question must be refocused not on if but how the MMR vaccine causes autism.
Here are a few observations as to the cause:
MMR Vaccine May Cause Autoimmunity to the Central Nervous System: Since 2002, research began to emerge showing a clear link between MMR vaccine and the pathogenesis of autism, starting with a report published in the Journal of Biomedical Science showing that abnormal measles-mumps-rubella antibodies are linked to central nervous system (CNS) autoimmunity in children with autism.
