What Sharyl Attkisson told me about vaccines

What investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson told me about vaccines

by Jon Rappoport

February 10, 2015


“The complete failure of this year’s flu vaccine, even by conventional standards, is a major scandal at the CDC. To distract the press and public, we now have a fake epidemic of measles, and pressure to take the vaccine, take all vaccines all the time. This is called a psyop. Psyops build fake realities.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

As my readers know, I’ve written many articles about vaccines, covering: mandatory shots; the pseudoscience of vaccination; severe adverse effects; poisons in shots; disastrous vaccination campaigns, and so on.

This article is about something else. It’s about who is allowed to speak fully in mainstream media.

If truth were the objective of news, you would see reasoned debates between pro and anti-vax proponents on major networks—-but that’s a joke because no reasoned debates are permitted on any sensitive subject.

When it comes to vaccines, major media are all about “what doctors tell us.” If I may be so bold, who cares what doctors say?

Who cares?

Why are doctors a privileged class? Why do they get a free pass?

Let’s see…oh yes, it’s because government and drug companies back them up. The last time I looked, this has nothing to do with the truth.

It has to do with monopoly, though.

“I’m a doctor, and of course I’m pro-vaccine.”

“Welcome, Doctor, good to have you on the show.”

Or: “I’m not a doctor.”

“Sorry, you’re out.”

Or: “I’m a doctor, and I’m against vaccines.”

“You’re suffering from a mental disorder, Doctor, and you’re a traitor to your profession and a threat to the future of the human race.”

Media construct this premise: the pro-vaccine “experts” are truthtellers, and the people who question vaccines are “denialists.” That’s how the issue is framed. Ahead of time. On purpose.

The millions of brainwashed people who watch the news every night and genuflect and live inside that dream are content to believe “the good doctors.” They have to believe someone, because they have no opinion of their own. They don’t have the tools to form a reasoned opinion. If a doctor told them that four shots of bull sperm would protect their children from a virus floating in from the Orion Belt, they’d line up their kiddies at clinics and drug stores for the “free” jab.

An anti-vaccine reporter at a local TV station once told me she’d been labeled “trouble.” She wasn’t permitted to air any vaccine story, for fear that through word or gesture she might trigger a scandal.

Part of that scandal? Scores of viewers would contact the station and side with the anti-vaccine reporter. The execs knew those viewers were out there and were also “trouble.”

On August 27, 2014, a long-time researcher at the CDC, William Thompson, confessed in print that he and his colleagues had cooked a vital vaccine study to “prove” the MMR vaccine had no connection to autism…when in fact that was a lie. The vaccine did have a connection.

A media storm should have followed. A respected researcher coming out of the woodwork and saying, “I lied”? That’s a huge story for major media and medical media.

But? There was a virtual blackout on the story. There still is.

The vaccine establishment must be protected.

In the fall of 2009, Sharyl Attkisson, working at CBS News, blew the doors open on a huge Swine Flu scandal at the CDC:

The CDC, whose job it was to accurately report the number of Swine Flu cases in the US, had stopped counting. Stopped counting.

Why? Because the overwhelming number of blood samples from diagnosed or likely Swine Flu patients, coming back from testing labs, showed these people didn’t have Swine Flu or any flu.

That fact torpedoed the entire CDC propaganda- fear campaign aimed at convincing Americans to take the Swine Flu vaccine.

So…Sharyl Attkisson’s effort to move this story from the CBS News website on to the national nightly-news television broadcast was shot down.

Here is a piece from a 2014 interview I did with Attkisson:

Q: In 2009, you spearheaded coverage of the so-called Swine Flu pandemic. You discovered that, in the summer of 2009, the Centers for Disease Control, ignoring their federal mandate, stopped counting Swine Flu cases in America. Yet they continued to stir up fear about the “pandemic,” without having any real measure of its impact. Wasn’t that another investigation of yours that was shut down? Wasn’t there more to find out?

A: The implications of the story were even worse than that. We discovered through our FOI efforts that before the CDC mysteriously stopped counting Swine Flu cases, they had learned that almost none of the cases they had counted as Swine Flu was, in fact, Swine Flu or any sort of flu at all! The interest in the story from one [CBS] executive was very enthusiastic. He said it was “the most original story” he’d seen on the whole Swine Flu epidemic. But others pushed to stop it and, in the end, no broadcast wanted to touch it. We aired numerous stories pumping up the idea of an epidemic, but not the one that would shed original, new light on all the hype. It was fair, accurate, legally approved and a heck of a story. With the CDC keeping the true Swine Flu stats secret, it meant that many in the public took and gave their children an experimental vaccine that may not have been necessary.

Q: You’ve revealed serious problems caused by vaccines. Have you run into opposition as a result of covering these stories?

A: This is a long discussion but yes, it is one of the most well funded, well orchestrated efforts I’ve ever seen on a story. Many reporters, if not all, who have tried to factually cover this topic have experienced the same opposition as have researchers who dared to uncover vaccine side effects. Those who don’t want the stories explored want to censor the information from the public entirely, lest the public draw the “wrong” conclusions about the facts. The media has largely bought into the conflicted government, political and medical complex propaganda on the topic that marginalizes researchers, journalists and parents who dare to speak to the scientific facts they’ve uncovered or to their own experiences. It’s a giant scandal of its own.

Q: I know you’ve had problems with your Wikipedia page. What happened there?

A: Long story short: there is a concerted effort by special interests who exploit Wikipedia editing privileges to control my biographical page to disparage my reporting on certain topics and skew the information. Judging from the editing, the interest(s) involved relates to the pharmaceutical/vaccine industry. I am far from alone…

power outside the matrix

Does that tell you something about the way major media cover vaccine stories?

There is even more.

The staggering capper on this tale? Roughly three weeks after Attkisson’s Swine Flu revelations appeared in print, the CDC, obviously in great distress over the exposure, decided to double down. The best lie to tell would be a huge lie.

Here, from a November 12, 2009, WebMD article is the CDC’s response: “Shockingly, 14 million to 34 million U.S. residents — the CDC’s best guess is 22 million — came down with H1N1 swine flu by Oct. 17 [2009].” (“22 million cases of Swine Flu in US,” by Daniel J. DeNoon)

The CDC had no facts or stats or lab tests to confirm ANY of their reported numbers of Swine Flu cases in America. So they said: 22 MILLION CASES.

But don’t worry. Be happy. Everything the government tells you about disease and the need to take vaccines is perfectly true.

Perfectly, absolutely.

    Jon, whatever you do PLEASE DON’T STOP reporting the facts and/or continuing to push back against this latest blatant effort on the part of the CDC-medical-pharma cabal to stigmatize any & all who dare to question the underlying premises of the vaccine psy-op. It’s obviously about more than merely $$$, it’s very much about control, manipulation, disinfo on a grand scale, and then some. But money is certainly one of the central pillars of their edifice of assumed power. For what it’s worth, I almost pursued a career in medicine but somehow came to my senses halfway through my junior year in undergrad school about the absolute fantasy that underpins much (though not all) of western medicine being the sine qua non of human health and societal deification of the medical profession. Thank God…

    Another great piece 🙂 Bravo!

    Toxic overload is something these needle pushers are not addressing. It isn’t JUST what is in the shots but we must take into consideration the other forms of toxic soup we are exposed to on a daily basis. How in the world can a Doctor who is there to treat the human body not entertain the idea that first they should check to see what foods are being eaten, do the children already have an overload of fluoride in their system because they drink the tap water and brush their teeth, what other chemicals might they be exposed too. (just crawled through the grassy lawn that was just sprayed with weed killer and roundup) Too many factors now, one size does not fit all.

  5. henry says:

    Americans are conditioned to think that those controlling the reality machine are much stronger and smarter than they are. It would be useless to try to think for themselves because the scientists and doctors are very smart and they have spent their lives learning this material. Therefore they defer to the experts because they cannot trust their own thought processes.

    “The doctors know best” is an article of faith. You may learn from TV talk shows additional tips to stay healthy but any evidence that conflicts with the idea that the doctors know best must be rejected if you are to not to lose your faith. The other faith statement that they hold is that there should be a separation of church and state. When the state is your church, the separation of church and state is a faith statement. It means that no other church can conflict with the one true church – the corporatist state. Those who push this dis-empowering idea that you are weak and stupid, are religious bigots.

    Until you realize the game that they play, you can’t win.

  6. NWO Reporter says:

    The story above describes an organized criminal conspiracy at the highest levels of government and industry. But according to official experts like Dr. Offit, only crazy people think conspiracies like that happen. Therefore, the CDC must have had a very good reason for doing what it did — probably something super top-secret involving national security. Thank you for protecting us, CDC!

    Here’s one for you Jon…

    Where is the outrage from people ‘who know better’ than to trust the corporate media on this Disney psyop? Why are we not organizing a class action lawsuit against the corporate media (all of them) for blatant RICO violations with the drug companies in regards to this PROVABLE psyop? Who gave the green lights to run with a fraudulent story that a unvaccinated woman kicked off the Disney now national measles outbreak?

    A woman is falsely accused of starting a measles out break, NOT by one or, two or, three… different news outlets but by EVERY major corporate media entity both off an online. Anyone who has worked in the corporate media knows that NOBODY fact checked this ‘story’ of an unvaccinated woman starting an outbreak of measles. This FALSE story was given the go ahead to “RUN WITH IT” as a REAL news story. This is a very big deal.

    The story ‘concoction’ was exposed when the California Health Department (HAD TO?) release the correct information that in fact, it was a fully vaccinated 22 year old female who turned out to be patient zero and infected her fellow employees at Disneyland.

    NOT ONE corporate media entity that ran the unvaccinated woman story has EVER even retracted that FALSE reporting. This is a very ‘big deal’ because of so many corporate news entities were Involved. Corporations that ALL have heavy financial ties to the vaccine manufactures is plausible motive to run, not just a completely fraudulent news story, but use it to 1.) FALSELY terrorize the public. but 2.) terrorize the public into reckless and dangerous health safety issues.

    We can not allow the corporate media off the hook for this one. Any social media sharing of vaccine information needs to include the fact that ‘patent zero’ was fully vaccinated and the corporate media used fraud to defraud the public into not only taking dangerous vaccines but to create an environment to have them forced down out veins. Those of us who know better can NOT allow this fraud go down the memory hole.

    If I was to bet, this ‘so-called’ unvaccinated woman the press was following around her hotel, got on the phone with her attorney and said… “Let’s go after them!!!” Once the phone rang from her attorney to just ONE of the big fish media corps the word was given to drop the unvaccinated woman story and switch to patient zero. How much ya wanna bet?

    great article. Funny thing has happened in my area. Last week, there was a measles outbreak. One which turned out to be false (though that report was in the local paper yesterday, that the results for the measles from the ONE person came back negative, the article is now no longer on their site). Mind you, over this false hysteria, all last week, numerous FREE MMR vaccines were being offered. The outbreak, or supposed outbreak was at the local university. Not only did I instantly believe that it was a psy-op, BUT it got bumped because the same uni had their very first homicide a few days later! Well, who would have gone to the now, nightly candle light vigils if a campus has the dreaded measles!!!! No one. So was there a true outbreak to begin with, def not. And what about the push for the free MMR vaccine tying into the Italian court ruling that the MMR vac does in fact cause autism? I don’t believe in coincidences.

  10. theodorewesson says:


    There are pediatricians who no longer offer vaccinations in their private practices — as it is too expensive for them to do so. They lose money (high whole sale cost of the vax; refrigeration of the vax in their office; 24/7 remote monitoring service on the temperature of their refrigerator). Their patient’s insurance is not keeping up with the cost of the vaccines themselves.

  11. Abinico Arts says:

    Vaccines can also hurt your animal friends, dogs and cats. I had one of my cats damaged real bad by a vaccine; the poor guy went blind, and had his kidneys destroyed. I nursed him for a year before he passed away. It was very, very sad.

  12. Roy Shroyer says:

    In this country, no matter where you look, if you dig deep enough, it’s all fraud backed by violence.

    VERY PROFITABE (for some people) FRAUD.

    No matter where you look, corps and gunvermin are lying to us for maximum profit.

    Anybody who thinks they care about anything else is fooling themselves IMO.

  13. Radhey Patel says:

    In this blog/article, Jon shifts from his previous articles about just the negatives of getting vaccinated. He challenges the notion that we as viewers/readers of mainstream media are only given unbiased and true facts from newspapers and news broadcasters. He claims that if the media was really here to tell us the truth then the major networks on T.V. would show debates between both sides of the problem, which, in this case, is whether or not vaccines are truly helpful. Jon also states that doctors and the media have brainwashed people into believing whatever they say, because they have the government backing them up.

    Although Jon makes a good case about how the media is filtered to show the viewers what the government wants us to see, I believe he needs more statistics and facts to back up his claim. I do not think the word of just Sharyl Attkisson is enough evidence to disenfranchise the major networks or get a majority of the viewers to support his claim. I also do not think his view on vaccines is completely correct. I commend his attempt to go against the big networks, and try to bring some light to a subject that needs to be discussed.

  14. signalfire says:

    All these ‘free’ vaccines must be getting subsidized by the federal government, right? We can be damn sure that Merck isn’t giving them away out of the goodness of their hearts, unless of course they stand to make billions on the lifelong treatment that’s needed after you suffer vaccine damages…. Has Disney gone belly-up yet? Seems like their stock should have taken a nosedive. First thing I’d do if I was a parent planning a several thousand dollar ‘vacation’ to that weirdly pathetic excuse for entertainment would be to cancel the plans, stay home and save money.

  15. nwqfk says:

    Jon I have to retract my earlier post (to some degree) it seems I had my vaccinated spreading disease people confused. New York NOT California.

    However, the media absolutely lied about vaccine free people causing the Disney outbreak that is 100% confirmed. I intend to make that a point with the evidence to back it up when people crow that as gospel.

    My guess is the establishments biggest fear is that the ‘traveler’ who started the California outbreak is from central America and NOT the Philippines.

  16. One Irrefutable Anti-Vax Argument

    Vaccinations cause an immune reaction.

    Vaccinations cause an immune reaction to the ingredients in the vaccine.

    Vaccinations cause an immune reaction to the ingredients in the vaccine, which includes the ones listed on the package insert.

    Vaccinations cause an immune reaction to the ingredients in the vaccine, which includes the ones listed on the package insert AND the ones not listed.

    An allergy is an immune reaction.

    Vaccinations cause allergies.

    If vaccinations have food protein in them, vaccinations could cause food allergies.

    Vaccinations can have food protein in them.

    It is only the final culture medium that is listed on the package insert. All the earlier culture mediums can be food waste which is why patents for culture mediums list nearly every food known to man.

    Vaccinations can have a mixture of food oils in them that have a trace amount of food protein. The FDA allows pharmaceutical companies to self affirm Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) ingredients and nothing gets submitted to the government and these ingredients become trade secrets protected by international law. Even the FDA doesn’t know what is in the vaccines.

    These food allergies are very serious and can be deadly and affect about 2 children in every classroom. Food allergies are unknown in unvaccinated populations.

    Vaccine safety cannot be adequately studied without knowing the ingredients in the vaccines.

    This is where the provax folks tell me that I cannot PROVE that vaccines have peanut oil and food protein in them. That is true. I can only show a great deal of circumstantial evidence that vaccinated people and animals have food allergies which are increasing and serious, but among unvaccinated people and animals food allergies are nearly unknown. I have shown the law about secrecy and self-affirmed vaccine ingredients.

    But it is not the job of the public to have to PROVE vaccine safety. It is the job of the FDA to “take action on particular substances if information is brought to their attention that causes them to doubt an ingredient’s safety.” And it is the job of the pharmaceutical companies to prove safety.

    So I have done my part.

    Dear FDA, I am bringing it to your attention that the self-affirmed GRAS ingredients and culture mediums used are the direct cause of the food allergy epidemic among our children.

    Dear Pharmaceutical Companies, I am calling the public’s attention to the fact that you are keeping secrets. Secrets that can be harming our children.

    And dear Provaxers,

    I have provided all the research I have done on my website:


    It is not perfect, but it doesn’t need to be. It is adequate to prove that there is a major problem with the vaccines. If you disagree with me, then you show the world that the pharmaceutical companies are disclosing all of the ingredients and that the vaccines don’t cause immune reactions = allergies.

    If you don’t believe doctors know what they’re doing/are knowledgeable then next time you need to go to the doctor or emergency DONT. You’re smarter than them right? You’re responsible for fixing your own injuries and curing your own viruses from here on out you hypocrite

    • Theodore says:

      you’re conflating, on the hand, the seeing of a western-medicine ‘doctor’ that uses toxic drugs to manage the SYMPTOMS of a chronic disease — instead of using nutrition to stimulate the body’s self-healing mechanism to treat the CAUSE of the disease, WITH, emergency room western-medicine Doctors who are experts in handling bodily injury (gunshot wounds, broken bones from car accidents, burns from fires) who do administer pain-killing drugs. Thank God for the latter.
