An Autism Media Channel Film, directed by Andrew Wakefield & Produced
by Del Bigtree.
This film had been pulled from the Tribeca Festival in New York at the
end of March. The Tribeca Film Festival was started in 2001 by Robert
De Niro, who has an autistic son. The film was pulled, for the stated
reason that they had “concerns with certain things in this film
that we feel prevent us from presenting it in the Festival program”
– exactly what things were not specified.
I saw this film on 04-25-16 at the Harkins Valley Art Theater in Tempe, AZ.
I was impressed by the presentation of the evidence. The tone was matter-of-fact,
without any of the emotionally charged adjectives we have become accustomed
to hearing from the medical establishment.
I quote from a recent (04-20-16) e-mail communication from the Executive
Director of the Arizona Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics
about the “damaging and false messages contained within this film”:
In attempt to limit the exposure of this film and the amount of people
who view it, which is our ultimate goal, Harkins and AzAAP are in agreement
that full censorship and banning films only drives media attention and
increases the number of people who seek out the film. The film will be
available via online streaming in a few weeks, and we don’t want
publicity of it being pulled from theatres to have the unwanted adverse
effect of increased viewership in people’s homes.
I am not quite clear on exactly which part of the film is “damaging
and false”. Well, maybe damaging to the integrity of the Centers
for Disease Control. But false? That remains to be demonstrated.
One version of the story about Dr. William W Thompson, PhD, epidemiologist
and whistle-blower, who expressed deep regret about his role in helping
the Centers for Disease Control to exclude data from a study on vaccines
and autism, can be read on the
Alliance for Natural Health website. The published paper from which data was apparently excluded can
be read here in abstract form. The full text version is available only
to subscribers, or for a 2-day access price of $25.00.
The film does state that Dr. Thompson was unaware that his telephone conversations
with Dr. Hooker were being recorded. Dr. Thompson has, very sensibly,
engaged the services of a “whistle-blower” legal firm. His
statement can be read
The released data speak for themselves – the incidence of autism
in those Africa-American children who received the MMR early is significantly
higher than in the general population of the same age group. The incidence
of autism in those children of all racial heritages who received the MMR
vaccine early is higher than in the population of those who received the
vaccine after the age of three.
When a request was made for production of individual vaccines, so that
they might be given spaced out, rather than all at the same time, the
response was “That would impact our vaccine program adversely.”
No statement of whether it might impact children who have not yet been
It is projected that by the year 2030, if the incidence of autism continues
to rise as it has been for the past several years, one in every two male
children will be diagnosed autistic.
The film call to action includes the following:
1 – That Congress subpoena Dr. William Thompson and investigate the
2 – That Congress repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine injury
Act and hold manufacturers liable for injury caused by their vaccines.
3 – That the single measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine be made available
4 – That all vaccines be classified as pharmaceutical drugs and tested
Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents
of vaccine-injured children are included. The inescapable conclusion is
that there has been an apparent deception on the part of the CDC, with
destruction of some data. This data, if included in the original study,
would lead to the conclusion that the MMR vaccine, administered early
may have contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism, potentially
the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.

I urge everyone to watch the movie, Vaxxed, and then to make up their own
minds about the subject.
