In a first for journalism, the UK’s Guardian national daily newspaper has been caught falsifying their own newspaper’s public record in a bid to airbrush the facts about vaccine-caused-autism. Whilst some other media outlets have adopted the approach of ignoring the evidence and writing and broadcasting one-sided reports, this time The Guardian newspaper has been caught changing it. The Guardian removed the evidence – gone without a trace – from their online newspaper.
Like many other papers, The Guardian allows readers to post comments on articles published in their online version. On Saturday 6 August 2011 the paper published a commentary by Tracy McVeigh “Research linking autism to internet use is criticised“. This was about a public row over claims by Lady Susan Greenfield that there is a link between the increase in autism and the increase in the use of the internet. Greenfield is a medical academic and researcher on brain physiology, particularly on Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
Inevitably this attracted debate between commenters about the causes of autistic conditions.
The surprising part is what The Guardian did in response to postings of clear evidence of an admitted link between vaccines and autistic conditions. They obliterated the posts as if they had never been made on their newspaper’s site. There is no trace of the posts to be found. They are just gone, barring a trace for one of them only – the first to be removed. There was no justification for this and none has so far been provided despite having been requested. The posts met the “Community Standards” whereas in contrast offensive comments from anti-vaccine safety campaigners are not removed.
The importance of this of course is that it underlines the points that:-
- news media are intentionally covering up
the public disaster where 1 in 64 British children [1 in 40 being
British boys] have an autistic condition and 1 in 100 US children do
- when they should instead report such a terrible thing fairly and campaign to do something about stopping this happening;
- the evidence presented is so strong that a UK national newspaper cannot answer it and airbrushes it from its online pages.
What happened was that in response to
numerous comments claiming vaccines are not implicated in causing autistic
conditions CHS intervened. CHS posted publicly made quotes and links to
evidence confirming numerous US government agencies and officials have
confirmed vaccines do cause autistic conditions. These include:
- Merck’s current Director of Vaccines Julie Gerberding when she was
Director of the US Centers for Disease Control;
- the US Health Resources Services Administration;
- the US Federal Court;
- the US Secretary of State for Health and Human Services.
The evidence and posts appear below in full. These include posts noting the financial ties between the Guardian newspaper and medical publishers with undeclared substantial conflicting financial and business interests in the pharmaceutical industry.
In all four posts were removed. Three without trace and one was removed with the incorrect claim left in its place that “This comment was removed by a moderator because it didn’t abide by our community standards.“
THE FIRST POST REMOVED WITHOUT TRACE

Here is a public opportunity to see The Guardian’s censorship of facts and evidence in action. The following facts are publicly documented yet The Guardian’s Comment is Free [LOL] censors removed it in its entiretly to airbrush the unpalatable facts from their agenda journalism. There was and could be no contravention of any Guardian “Community Standards” [well not official ones that is - only the ones that say the Guardian only publishes facts which fit its political agenda journalism and removes all others.
Tracey McVeigh's article on Lady Susan Greenfield's public unscientific comments about the causes of autistic conditions has provoked comment about the causes of autistic conditions.
In response to various comments we posted quotes from numerous US government officials and agencies with links to original sources on what causes autistic conditions. The Guardian censors removed the posting. There is no conspiracy theory here - only documented fact - and The Guardian does this kind of thing repeatedly.
This posting was made 7 August 2011 11:14AM and you can check out above that it was removed.

I think arec pretty much nailed it ..... given ageofautism's dangerous views on vaccination, I think you got off lightly.
So how about the views of 1) Merck's current Director of Vaccines Julie Gerberding when she was Director of the US Centers for Disease Control 2) the US Health Resources Services Administration 3) the US Federal Court? 4) the US Secretary of State for Health and Human Services?
All have confirmed autistic conditions can be caused by vaccines.
".. if you're predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism.

[when confirming of the 1322 cases of vaccine injury compensation settled out of court by the US Government in secret settlements]:-
We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.
US HRSA to reporter Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News 5th May 2008
US FEDERAL COURT
[PDD is the US term under DSM IV for ASD - Autistic Spectrum Disorder]:
“…… Bailey’s ADEM was both caused-in-fact and proximately caused by his vaccination. …… Furthermore, Bailey’s ADEM was severe enough to cause lasting, residual damage, and retarded his developmental progress, which fits under the generalized heading of Pervasive Developmental Delay, or PDD. The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine, and that this chain of causation was a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to Pervasive Developmental Delay.
US SECRETARY OF STATE FOR HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES:-
The Department for Health and Human Services conceded the Hannah Poling case - that Hannah's autistic condition was caused by 9 vaccines [ie. not just the MMR] administered in one day. Last year the US Federal Court determined a settlement which reportedly amounts to US $ 20 million over Hannah Poling’s lifetime:
