As we have previously reported, CNN so far is the only mainstream media (MSM) outlet to report on the CDC whistleblower story regarding CDC senior vaccine scientist Dr. William Thompson, who has come forward to confess that the CDC has withheld key information linking vaccines to autism. This is the one story the MSM does not want to cover, because they have repeated the CDC’s mantra for years now that there is no evidence that vaccines cause autism.
The CNN story that was published on their website reporting about Dr. Thompson marginalized the significance of his public statement, and did not report on the contents of his taped conversations with Dr. Brian Hooker, where he expressed deep sorrow for remaining silent all these years.

The Federal Government is Paying for Damages due to Vaccines to Children with Autism
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out damages to children with autism as a result of vaccines. Most people do not even know that the United States is the only country in the world where someone who is damaged by vaccines has no legal right to sue the vaccine manufacturer. In 1986, Congress passed a law preventing legal liability to vaccine damages, because the drug companies manufacturing vaccines blackmailed them, by threatening to stop manufacturing vaccines without legal protection. There were so many lawsuits resulting from vaccine injuries and deaths prior to this time, that it was no longer profitable for them to continue marketing vaccines without legal protection. So instead of Congress requiring that drug companies manufacture safer vaccines, they complied with the drug companies’ requests and passed legislation protecting the drug companies. In 2011 this law was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Instead of suing drug companies now for damages due to vaccines, the public must file a petition with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, which is funded by taxes on the revenues from vaccines. It is very difficult to sue the government and win a claim in this special vaccine court, and can take up to 10 years. So the 83 cases of autism that have already been awarded damages is obviously just the tip of the iceberg. (Here is the most recent published report of vaccine damages paid out.)
