Some people are so desperate to prove they are right (regrettably when wrong, of course) that they will stoop to pretty much anything. Blogs are a great place to see this.
Here are some examples, à la Kev Leitch’s blog’s highly unreliable accounts of the vaccines-to-autism issue. Here you can see how Kev quickly manages to discredit everything that appears on that blog. Thanks Kev mate. It makes life so much easier for the rest of us when we can see this clearly.
Exhibit 1 - Or Who’s Not Telling The Truth Kev?
Poling vs HHS - Something is definitely beginning to smell - Apr 30 2008 - Author: Kev
Here Kev Leitch claims the parents of successful US MMR vaccine damage claimant Hannah Poling won’t release key information about their daughter’s case. Leitch goes so far as to claim outright they are liars no less. Is that something psychologists call “classic projection”? Read on to judge for yourself.
It was the Polings who applied to
the Court for “complete transparency”
for all the documents - see the very
court document Kev links to on his blog
and just look at its title “ORDER
DEFERRING RULING ON PETITIONERS’ MOTION
FOR COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY OF PROCEEDINGS”
and the Polings are the petitioners on
their daughter’s behalf. So they are the
ones seeking complete disclosure, not
cherry-picking by the US government
But Leitch says “why won’t the Poling’s let key medical details that would ‘address innaccurate statements that were being made publicly’ be released right now? Why do they claim that they are asking for complete disclosure when it is clear they are not? Why did their counsel blatantly lie about the press conference?”
Leitch then goes on to claim “Now this is a bombshell. It was not the Poling’s who first wanted to release documents, it was HHS. They asked for the Poling’s consent to permit HHS to disclose medical information in order to ‘address innaccurate statements that were being made publicly’.
Really Kev? Bombshell? Ha!
So the Polings want everything disclosed but the HHS want their selected tidbits disclosed. So Kev accuses the Polings of wanting to withhold information when it is the HHS that is being selective and ensuring all the information is kept back and the Polings who object and instead want full disclosure. Then Kev calls them liars.
Who do you think is not telling it as it is? Is Kev’s site a reliable source of information? Judge for yourself - read on:-
Exhibit 2 - Or how Kev Cured Hannah Poling’s Autism
Kev claims Hannah Poling is not autistic.
Vaccines, Autism and the Concession - Mar 1 2008 - Author: Kev
He claims she has not enough symptoms and he does so by reference to the concession filed by the US government experts that conceded the case - which he posted on his site but which he now has changed to:-
“Concession Report (This document has been removed due to the possibility of it being illegally obtained). If people really wish to read the document for themselves it can be founf here, at the Huffington post“
But he has specifically failed to tell people that when Hannah Poling was originally diagnosed with autism, she had many more symptoms than she has now. So Kev claims she is not autistic. But he does so when it was he who disclosed himself on exactly the same web page of his the very document which contains the relevant information showing that Hannah Poling originally had many more symptoms:-
So he not only has the very information not just under his nose but he sticks it under everyone else’s but tells them something completely different. Nice one Kev. Don’t ya get dizzy spinning so fast?
Exhibit 3 - When All Else Fails Its “Kev’s Big Innuendo Time”
When Kev originally had nothing to say about the Hannah Poling case, he came out with some invented innuendo to imply the Polings were out to hide something (but quite what is impossible to fathom). Kev’s claim then was that the Polings would not allow Zimmerman to comment on the case:-
“Something is beginning to smell… - Mar 5 2008 - Author: Kev
So without a shred of evidence to back it up and when there are much more obvious explanations, Kev goes for the smear tactic because he has nothing else.
Firstly, professionally, Zimmerman is not allowed to comment. Secondly, there is no suggestion he has asked for permission to comment. Thirdly, in his shoes, I would want to keep well out of it. Fourthly, this is the Poling’s “show”, about their daughter, so it is not Zimmerman’s place to comment publicly. Fifthly, if I were Hannah Poling’s dad, I would be bloody furious if the treating physician went public about my kid’s case and more especially so in the circumstances like these.
And last but by no means least,
Hannah’s Dad, Jon Poling is an expert
himself and a neurologist at highly
respected Johns Hopkins in the USA so he
does not need Zimmerman to comment. He
is more than able to do so himself and
which he does here most ably:-

Well done again Kev. Thanks for showing us all what you are made of.
