Facing Autism in New Brunswick: The Huffington Post's Autism Big News Page Ain't What It Used To Be

Facing Autism in New Brunswick: The Huffington Post's Autism Big News Page Ain't What It Used To Be

The Huffington Post has certainly changed with respect to its Autism Big News Page. One of the most obvious changes is the assertion of content control by the elimination of the autism blogs directory at the bottom of the page. Even this humble autism blog could be found in that directory on occasion. There was no apparent attempt to control the blogs that were featured in that directory with a variety of blog site perspectives shown on a perpetually rotating basis. Now, unlike some other Big News Pages at the HP the rotating autism blogs directory is gone. At the same time the content appears to have changed. The days when a David Kirby and others could ask questions about autism and vaccine safety appear to have disappeared. Featured prominently near the top of the page is the recent IOM rehash of studies ... which has purportedly determined for all time that there is not, has never been, and can never be, forever and ever Amen, any remotely possible association between autism and vaccines, vaccine schedules, vaccine ingredients, vulnerable population subgroups or vaccine ingredients including those those vaccines containing ingredients which cross the placenta and which are given to pregnant women. Vaccine autism discussion is now officially dead at the Huff.
