My interview with former CBS star reporter: fake news

by Jon Rappoport

CBS is now publishing the names of sites they claim are fake news. Well, what about CBS itself?

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you’re aware that a film, Vaxxed, has been showing in theaters across America and overseas—and audiences are stunned by its revelations.

Vaxxed exposes a huge scandal at the CDC, where a long-time researcher, William Thompson, confessed (2014) that he and colleagues committed gross fraud in a study of the MMR vaccine.

Thompson admitted the evidence showed the vaccine led to a higher risk of autism in children—but that finding was intentionally buried, and the vaccine was given a free pass.

Of course, mainstream reporters have been mercilessly attacking Vaxxed, and a segment of the population finds it impossible to believe that the CDC would ever commit this kind of fraud.

So, as a mind-changer, let me take you back to the late summer of 2009, and the Swine Flu epidemic, which was hyped to the sky by the CDC. The Agency was calling for all Americans to take the Swine Flu vaccine. Remember?

The problem was, the CDC was concealing another scandal.

At the time, star CBS investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, was working on a Swine Flu story. She discovered that the CDC had secretly stopped counting cases of the illness—while, of course, continuing to warn Americans about its unchecked spread.

Understand that the CDC’s main job is counting cases and reporting the numbers.

What was the Agency up to?

Here is an excerpt from my 2014 interview with Sharyl Attkisson:

Rappoport: 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, [secretly] 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?

Attkisson: 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 [after it was published on the CBS News website] and, in the end, no [CBS television news] 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.

The Matrix Revealed

I’ll add a few details. It was routine for doctors all over America to send blood samples from patients they’d diagnosed with Swine Flu, or the “most likely” Swine Flu patients, to labs for testing. And overwhelmingly, those samples were coming back with the result: not Swine Flu, not any kind of flu.

That was the big secret. That’s what the CDC was hiding. That’s why they stopped reporting Swine Flu case numbers. That’s what Attkisson had discovered. That’s why she was shut down.

But it gets even worse.

Because about three weeks after Attkisson’s findings were published on the CBS News website, the CDC, obviously in a panic, decided to double down. If one lie is exposed, tell an even bigger one. A much bigger one.

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).

Are your eyeballs popping? They should be.

In the summer of 2009, the CDC secretly stops counting Swine Flu cases in America, because the overwhelming percentage of lab tests from likely Swine Flu patients shows no sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu.

There is no Swine Flu epidemic.

Then, the CDC estimates there are 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US.

So…the premise that the CDC would never lie about important matters like, oh, a vaccine increasing the risk of autism…you can lay that one to rest.

The CDC will lie about anything it wants to. It will boldly go where no person interested in real science will go.

It will completely ignore its mandate to care about human health, and it will get away with it.

And CBS will conveniently forget how it aided and abetted the CDC, by censoring real news, and instead opted for egregious and titanic fake bullshit.

    This is the tried and true technique of accusing others of what you’re guilty.

  2. I am starting a Rappoport word list. After ‘bloviating’ comes ‘egregious’. This one I know the meaning of, however I had forgotten it. Excellent article. Probably going to quote you in a few days.
    Thank you, Sir!!!

  3. Prescott says:

    Amazing what lies behind the medical cartel’s mural.

    Even more amazing is watching the “fake news” propaganda operation unfold in real time. Every rotten journalist, pundit, and politician began parroting the same catch-phrase in the month of November.

    Now, after a few weeks of talking about fake news, technology firms and governments are moving to address the problem. Major issues fester and grow for years without getting lip service; yet after a few weeks of hearing about fake news, the matrix’s golems rush into action.

    The psyop is hilariously transparent. The most spurious reality of them all now cannot ignore it’s competitors and has resorted to defamation.

    Matrix-media’s attempts to fight individual opinions will probably end up as successful as Blockbuster’s business model in the 21st century.

  4. Alan Roy says:

    My understanding is that the CDC is NOT a gov agency, but a for profit corp listed by Dunn and Bradstreet. IS THAT RIGHT? Or not? Yes, I’ve been banned by ABC separately from the overall lifetime Disqus ban. Generally, I tend to call them out on articles for distorting the truth, but you don’t deserve or get a reason it seems. This time, Jon, you seem to have missed the 90’s scandal where the CDC, Mayo Clinic, Yale U, and Smith-Kline were caught red handed making a bogus Lyme vaccine using falsified research results. That one damaged thousands.before it was quiety recalled. I’m pretty sure as well that the current Western Blot test has been deliberately skewed to show only 1/10 positives.

    • Jacqueline says:

      Alan, All federal, state, county, city government ‘groups’ are registered corporations (the US itself is a corporation). The courts have ruled that the first and foremost goal of a corporation is to profit. Government groups are no different in this role, and utilize some funky accounting practices to ‘hide’ the actual and very large amounts of money in possession; for all others outside of government attempting to apply these same practices, criminal prosecution is the result. Explore ‘CAFR’s for additional information.

  5. Mark says:

    Very likely, the notion of “fake news” websites will be the incentive for the fed to shut down or gain control over the internet. Once again, problem, solution, loss of freedoms and liberties.

    • If they “could” have they would have. The internet is a very big place, replicates at enormous speed. Who to target? Will they “adapt” (using “Punch” or “Private Eye” metaphor)? How to prosecute? There are potentially trillions of “fake news” articles already in circulation.

      Thus, I think fake news sabre rattling is bullshit aimed at “unauthorised” while blowers. They will target the LEAKS.

  6. But isn’t there an even bigger cover, an even bigger circle within the circle here, Jon?

    Are not all viruses “synthetic” and that’s why they are horribly difficult to identify and keep on “mutating”? Is not the real issue pollution and other nasties (such as pesticide) “welcomed” under bare faced auspices such as “productivity” (that globalist ambition)?

    Any discussions about vaccines must couple the real issues or problems are swept under the rug. Espionage or counter-espionage journalism?


  7. bob klinck says:

    Attaining political maturity certainly in Western countries, and probably in all countries, means coming to an understanding that, at the top, mobsters impinge decisively on all governmental institutions.

  8. Everything these Archon animated communists do these days is backfiring on them. The last real win they had was Libya. They have not managed to bring in all their well laid plans of bastardry since – no matter how hard they try. They had been planning an epidemic since at least 2005. I was on a project in risk management. One of the risk owners (human resources) told me in confidence one day that she was called into a meeting and told by the higher ups to draft a strategy in case of an epidemic. This wasn’t even on our risk register and she was told not to put it on the risk register either …….say what???? hmmmmmm. When did the Swine Flu break 2009.

    Nothing is going according to plan. They can’t get their dark lords re-elected. They had Brexit i the bag they thought NO, they thought they had Syria in the bag NOPE, they think no matter how hard they try they just can’t quite topple Assad. Their false flags are coming unstuck and totally unhinged and all of them. The Orlando shooting quietly disappeared almost as soon as it exploded. Berlusconi’s gone, Sarkosy’s gone, Cameron’s gone AND THANK GOD Killary is almost GONE. Hollande is at an all time low of 4% approval = GONE. It looks like everything they touch turns to shit these days..MH370 followed by MH317 – fizzled. Ukraine OOPS – Vicky (ugly horse headed bitch) Nuland Fuck the EU hahahaha. The list of failures is truly endless and mind boggling it is little wonder they are desperate now Frau Merkel is seriously in trouble….her sheer desperation shows. Now with the fake news just watch this backfire. BRING IT ON

  9. Eudoxia Jones says:

    Forgot to mention Italy what’s the bet Peppi Grillo gets in and I’m backing Le Penn in the Socialist Cup! As for Frau Merkel well the Evil Queen of Europe is about to get shafted as well and I hope she gets it as good as Marie Antoinette did
