(NaturalNews) In the summer of 2008, Sharyl Atkisson did a report for the CBS Evening News.

Aktisson indicated Dr. Paul Offit had conflicts of interest.

Offit is famous for saying that, theoretically, a baby should be able to tolerate 10,000 vaccines. Offit is considered the leading advocate for childhood vaccines in America, and he wants all religious and philosophical exemptions from vaccines outlawed.

In her report, Atkisson pointed out that Offit, the chief of infectious disease at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, occupies a research position sponsored by vaccine maker, Merck, to the tune of $1.5 million. He also holds a patent on an anti-diarrhea vaccine, Rotateq, for which he's received unspecified royalties (estimated to be in the millions of dollars.)

On the heels of Atkisson's report, Offit wrote a response that was published in the Orange County Register.

Almost three years later, the Register ran a startling and lengthy retraction: "a number of Dr. Offit's statements, as quoted in the OC Register, were unsubstantiated and/or false."

Here are those Offit statements the Register retracted:

Sharyl Atkisson lied. RETRACTED.

CBS News sent a "mean-spirited and vituperative email" bearing Atkisson's signature, stating to Offit, "You're clearly hiding something". RETRACTED.

Offit provided CBS News the complete details of his connections with Merck. RETRACTED.

In 2009, Atkisson did another report for CBS on Swine Flu statistics, pointing out that the Centers for Disease Control had actually stopped counting Swine Flu cases in America. (Therefore, how could the CDC possibly know the extent of the "epidemic?" )

Atkisson, who has won investigative-reporting awards for her coverage of gun-walking (Fast&Furious), the US bank bail-outs, medical drug safety, vaccine safety, and the Red Cross, now has her own blog. It does not appear to be an official part of CBS News.

On it, she writes, stunningly for a high-profile mainstream reporter: "Beware the paid naysayers and fringe bloggers who propagate false Web propaganda against me and others who investigate their industry and conflicts. Watch for pharmaceutical interests disguised as 'scientists' or pretending to be average 'commenters' on ridiculously vitriolic blog stories that claim those who look into vaccine safety are 'anti-vaccine' or 'nutty.' They want you to believe that for a reason. You know better. The public is getting wise."

Yes, the public is getting wise. The con artists and shills for the vaccine industry can anonymously write all the lies they want to. The truth about vaccine toxicity and ineffective results is expanding. Those who put on the mantle of official authority, to preach to the masses about their "superior knowledge," are transparent.

The last phony epidemic they promoted, Swine Flu, left governments with large unused stocks of vaccine in their warehouses. Diminishing numbers of people believe these medical "crises" are anything more than sales promotions for vaccinations.

In response to a query, a national news reporter wrote to me:

"Apparently the Wiki[pedia] problem is rampant and widespread... the special interest/PR groups etc learned years ago that if they started then -- and put in a lot of time and innocent edits -- they could build their way up to very powerful editing positions. They now have those positions and use them, disguised as anonymous 'volunteers' with pseudonyms, to skew and monitor pages and biographies. Much of it I've noticed is medical related (making sure people don't know vaccines can cause problems for example)...Wiki is a mess and is being used as a tool by cloaked special interests."

A few mainstream reporters have awakened. The one thing they lack is the green light to go after a story mercilessly, week after week, month after month, and expose its guts. Their editors and publishers simply won't allow it. And that's why major media are dying. The public wants to know the truth, once they get a whiff of it, and the place to find it is here, online.
