[Disseminating government propaganda, noisily ad infinitum (essentially MMR is 'safe', & Wakefield 'discredited') to drown out the truth, very noticeable with the Wakefield GMC inquisition kicked off by Times hack Brian Deer (whose boss, James Murdoch, was appointed to the board of MMR defendants GlaxoSmithKline), helped along by other 'Health/Medical' hacks like Allopath Ben Goldacre, with columnists jumping on the bandwagon to put the boot in.  Visible UK organ grinders are Allopaths like Salisbury.  If they wrote the truth they would be out of their Media job, or Assassinated, which was the fate of Journalist Gary Webb (see: 1984 Fresno Bee DPT report), after all, unimaginable sums of money and reputations are resting on this MMR vaccine being 'safe.'  You can see some of them singing the The Winter 2010 flu vaccine drive song.]

"Stoppard is just one of the many medical hacks that keep the wheels of vested interest turning inside the UK pharma-soaked media."--Martin Walker

I am dismayed by the way in which the media continuously, despite whatever you tell them, reiterate the same errors, the same mistakes, but of course the major problem is the way it was handled by the Sunday Times and Brian Deer, and that to my mind was just a big error from start to finish, and it is like having 5% of the documents and making a story out of those 5% when you haven't got the remaining 95% that tell the actual story.  Making it up, fixing that idea in mind, staying with that idea, irrespective of what anyone might say in mitigation and that's what happened.

[2012 Feb] The Walker-Smith Appeal, the British Media and the Boseley Problem By John Stone  The almost unavoidable conclusion is that large sections of the British media have always known that the “Wakefield” prosecution was based on an imposture, and have been holding their silence in contempt of fair reporting and of the public at large, and that these people are much more concerned about their own backs than they are about our children.
