A little more to a very worrying story. I’m sure there is more to come.
On August 24, CDC scientist William Thompson came out of the shadows and revealed that he had participated in a major scientific fraud:
He and his co-authors had published a 2004 study claiming there was no MMR-vaccine connection to autism. They had omitted vital data which contradicted that finding.
The MMR vaccine was causing autism. Thompson knew it. So did his co-authors. They buried that chilling fact.
In Thompson’s confession, released through his Cincinnati attorney, Rick Morgan, Thompson asserted that he would work with Congress, but he wouldn’t speak to reporters.
Two reasons immediately spring to mind.
Thompson made a deal with the CDC, where he is still employed. He would aid in the current media blackout, thus trying to preserve the reputation of his bosses.
In return, the CDC wouldn’t take any number of possible actions against him, the lightest of which would be suspension.
