Vaccine industry has suppressed and intimidated all but four reporters in the entire country

by J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) Noted vaccine choice advocate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., gave a speech recently at the New Jersey state capitol in Trenton in which he focused primarily on the corruption, collusion and malfeasance regarding vaccine safety at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As noted by Anne Dachel of Age of Autism, a news website covering the spread of the disability, RFK also discussed the media's role in covering up the scandalous link between some vaccines and the occurrence of autism, which is routinely portrayed in the press as "old science" or a link that has been "soundly disproven."

But, as she reported in a story regarding RFK's discussion, the reaction of the assembled press was both predictable and depressing:

He focused on the corruption, collusion and malfeasance at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It was a scathing report about the ethics of the agency in charge of vaccine safety.

The second half of his 45 minute talk was a chance for reporters to question Kennedy about his claims. Incredibly, during the question and answer session not a single reporter asked about the scandalous charges Kennedy made about top U.S. health officials. Most of them asked about exemptions and herd immunity. It was like they weren't even in the room.

Only a handful of truthful, honest vaccine reporters

In a follow-up to his talk, Dachel asked RFK about the lack of media focus on the specific charges he made regarding the CDC. She asked him what he thought it would take for the mainstream media to finally begin covering the issue of vaccine safety fairly and honestly.

His response was, essentially, that it would never happen.

"The trillion dollar pharmaceutical industry is now the largest advertiser on television, radio and newspaper pages, spending from $3 billion to $5.4 billion annually over the past decade," RFK told her. "Pharmaceutical companies target network news divisions for their advertising buys partially for message control and partially for the demographic; TV news audiences tend to be older affluent pharmaceutical customers. A network news division president told me two weeks ago he would fire a newscaster or program host whose reporting or programming choice lost his station an advertising pharmaceutical company."

During his speech RFK also made a poignant, revealing observation about vaccine safety and media coverage:

There are only four reporters in this country that will actually cover this issue: Dan Olmsted from UPI, who lost his job, Alisyn Camerota from Fox who basically is being pushed out, Sharyl Attkisson from CBS, who lost her job, and there's a woman called Karen Garloch, who started covering this issue for the Charlotte Observer.

Let's look at each of these reporters individually:

Dan Olmsted: As a senior editor for UPI (United Press International), Olmsted wrote a series of articles regarding the link between vaccines and autism. Specifically, Olmsted wrote about how the mercury in vaccines is linked to dramatic increases in autism cases.

Olmsted was eventually forced out at UPI; he founded the Age of Autism (also the title of his series of columns and reports) after leaving the newswire. Check his site regularly for the latest information; he also accepts donations to support his efforts.

Alisyn Camerota: Currently co-anchoring CNN's New Day program, Camerota spent 16 years at Fox News. In 2011, she reported on a probe linking government vaccine settlements and autism. The report was widely "debunked" by the "scientific community." Before then, she was recognized by Age of Autism in 2010 as "Journalist of the Year" for fairly covering the issue of vaccine safety.

Sharyl Attkisson: As one of the last true investigative reporters who doesn't care which political ox she gores, Attkisson was a thorn in the side of her network producers and senior editors over a number of issues -- her dogged and truthful coverage of the Benghazi scandal, Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama Administration's "green energy" scam -- and the vaccine-autism link. After a couple of harrowing years following a 20-year career at the network, she left in February 2014.

But she continues to cover the vaccine-autism story, and other important topics, on her website.

Karen Garloch: A health reporter for The Charlotte Observer Garloch still currently has a job, even after reporting on cases of vaccine injury to children and the families such injuries impact. You can read her work here.
