thimerosal coverup: abc news

June 24, 2005

ABC News has pretty much always sucked, but this maneuver really pushes them off the edge. This is getting quite a bit of play in the alternative press and we’ll see how far it goes.Essentially, RFK Jr. and bunch of other people are upset that the drug companies have poisoned us and our children with a preservative containing mercury (thimerosal) in our inoculations. ABC had a story in the can that was harsh towards the CDC and the drug companies. The night before it was scheduled to run, someone high-up in the Disney food-chain killed it. After hundreds of angry calls and emails, they re-edited the piece and ran it as a defense of thimerosal, as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. responded, shocking “even people who were already cynical about the journalism on network news.”
