This clip is an interview with the producer of the film, ‘VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe’, Del Bigtree, who says he’s been a producer of many shows on medical topics, which are well-regarded in the medical field. He says he was willing to put his good reputation on the line because of his admiration for Andrew Wakefield, whose work was originally published in the most important medical journal there is, The Lancet.
In this interview, which was given shortly before the announcement that his film had been pulled from the Tribeca Film Festival, Bigtree suggests that Wakefield was maliciously attacked by a powerful industry and that the details of his study were distorted, leading to the loss of his license to practice medicine and the retraction of his paper by The Lancet. Bigtree claims that Wakefield was working on creating safer vaccines at the time that he was medically disbarred.
Moreover, what of the CDC whistleblower, William Thompson?
That’s who this film is actually about. He’s the one who came forward and said that the CDC’s studies were fudged. Why is everybody only talking about the “discredited Andrew Wakefield”? Thompson’s story around 2 years ago and it got very little traction. Now, once again, attention is being diverted away from the CDC whistleblower – who is the subject of this film towards a smearfest of Andrew Wakefield, whose medical career was already torpedoed.
Although directed by Wakefield, the film is NOT about him or his work, it is about the trials and tribulations of CDC whistleblower, William Thompson. World-renowned actor, Robert DeNiro recently announced that his young son was afflicted with autism and that he’d included ‘VAXXED”, in the Tribeca Film Festival, to encourage discussion about this malaise, which has risen, in the past century, from one child in 1,500 born having this to what now headed towards one child in 80 born somewhere in the spectrum of the neurological disorder called autism and Aspberger’s syndrome.
The pressure from Big Pharma was allegedly so intense against this film that DeNiro was forced to withdraw it from the festival. This is the full uncut interview, that ABC World News conducted with Del Bigtree, producer of ‘VAXXED’, of which only 5 seconds was aired.
The furor that resulted from the cancellation of the film’s screening at the Festival created enough of a publicity campaign, that it will actually receive a theatrical release at the bastion of Independent Films, the Angelika Film Center.
It looks like the zealotry of the medical and media establishments may have backfired, in a climate where increasing numbers of people no longer give full credence to the pronouncements of the authorities.
