VAXXED the Movie – Does the CDC Have Something to Hide?
Bowing to overwhelming pressure, Robert de Niro recently withdrew the invitation for the the documentary film, Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe, to be shown at Manhattan’s Tribeca Film Festival. At the same time, a scheduled interview on NCR Radio with Kevin Barry about his book, “Vaccine Whistleblower – Exposing Autism Research Fraud at the CDC” was cancelled with no explanation. Freedom of speech is a right we claim to hold very dear in America, and when it is suppressed in any way, one must ask why. Who has something to hide? Who has something to gain? What should be done about it?
Here is Brent Marchant’s review of VAXXED:
Despite concerted efforts to discredit the film and its director, “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe” offers a rather damning indictment of the government agencies that appear to have seriously and deliberately misled the public about the safety of the pediatric MMR vaccine. This combination product, used to protect youngsters against measles, mumps and rubella, has potentially been linked to a skyrocketing rise in autism, especially among boys and, particularly, those of African-American descent. Through the recorded confessions of CDC whistleblower William Thompson and an impressive (and cogently explained) dossier of supporting data, filmmaker Andrew Wakefield has compiled a convincing case against the vaccine in its current form and usage. It provides ample food for thought for parents who are assessing the decision of whether or not to vaccinate their children.
It’s important to note that, unlike what some reviewers have incorrectly contended, this is not a blanket rejection of all vaccines, nor is it a conspiracy theory diatribe run amok. (The film clearly states, for example, that the individual vaccines used against measles, mumps and rubella appear to be safe, despite the alleged problems with the combination product.) Instead, the film is a reasoned assessment of information that appears to have been intentionally deleted, tweaked or covered up to suit the needs of those who benefit from such acts.
Admittedly, the picture gets a bit bogged down in experimental design jargon at times. But this minor shortcoming is offset by concise explanations of effects and implications, punctuated by heartbreaking case studies that, unfortunately, could be a preview of what’s to come if actions to explore the matter definitively aren’t taken soon.

Why is the CDC Petrified of the Film Vaxxed?
America’s patrons of the theatric and visual arts, the lovers of film, dance and music, are among the nation’s most diehard advocates for liberty, self-expression, and art’s civil rights to challenge the failures and wrongs in the social and political status quo. During every decade, during every generation, many of our most memorable artistic achievements and performances are recognized as such because they raise relevant and timely insights that stir controversy. Projected on the screen, films can magically crack the veil of our collective illusion, the mythic, wonderland fantasy of self-deception and ignorance perpetuated by governmental and corporate powers to manipulate a mentally compromised mainstream media. By their very nature, documentary films offer an alternative story to the scripted propaganda streaming across our TV screens and monitors. Frequently they adventure into a deeper reality that so often underlies the mere posturing and veneer of half truths and lies that take hold of society and masquerade as fact. For this reason, artistic truth and censorship are a horrible marriage and have never been suitable bedfellows.
The recent controversy over the acceptance and rapid withdrawal of the documentary film, Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe, at Manhattan’s Tribeca Film Festival, is an alarming case of censorship to protect the guilty and demonize a messenger of warning, the film’s director Dr. Andrew Wakefield. Popular scientific consensus has yet to tackle the huge uncertainty gap to identify the most probable causes of autism. Legitimate medical protocol and integrity demands honest debate of all the scientific evidence, regardless of its undesirable conclusions. Yet the CDC and Big Pharma adamantly refuse to engage in such a debate and review. Therefore the expurgation of Wakefield’s film is a dangerous step closer to widespread medical McCarthyism.
