Friday, I posted about Andrew Wakefield's Autism Media Channel being offline (it's still AWOL) and I also linked to a CNN iReport on the CDC Whistleblower. Since then CNN has taken that report down for whatever reason and since put it back up. It now shows "flagged as inappropriate". To say that following WTF is going on with this story is difficult, would be an understatement.
"CNN PRODUCER NOTECNN iReport is the network’s user-generated news community. This story was initially pulled for further review after it was flagged by the community. CNN has reached out to the CDC for comment and is working to confirm the claims in this iReport."
Update: The Autism Media Channel website has gone down.
Update: Jon Rappoport is reporting Dr. Thompson was escorted from the CDC headquarters yesterday afternoon.
Update: Autism Media Channel confirmed crash site was due to exceeding bandwith; no other reason.
Update: Dr. Thompson himself responds to e-mail showing support for his act of speaking out:
William W. Thompson, PhD
