It should be abundantly clear to anyone who is being honest with themselves that the mainstream media, which is mostly Left-wing, will stop at nothing to ridicule or silence those with whom it disagrees.
The legacy media has its own narratives and storylines, it’s own political agenda, and anyone who colors outside of those narrow (minded) lines must be silenced at the very least, and outright destroyed if possible.
That has been the case with global warming skeptics and climate change “deniers” who, using available scientific data and the climate change pushers’ own failed predictions about the end of the world to disprove that SUVs, smokestacks, fire-burning homes and underarm deodorant sprays are destroying the planet.
It is also the case with anyone who dares to question one of the mainstream media’s sugar daddies – Big Pharma – when it comes to the dangers of vaccines.
Case in point: As reported by Celia Farber, founder and editor of The Truth Barrier website, an author who is a whistleblower, political and fracking activist, Lance Simmens, went to see VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, at a screening in California recently. After watching the documentary, which details an admission by CDC scientist and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson who helped cover up an established link between vaccines and autism, was moved – and enraged – by what he had seen.
“Compelled” to write about the film
So much so that he wrote a column about it for The Huffington Post, a noted Left-wing news site where he has been a contributor for eight years, writing nearly 200 pieces. While the story went online as per normal procedure, it didn’t stay very long. And what’s more, Farber explains, Simmens’ account was blocked.
In an interview with Farber, Simmens gave some insight into what happened and why.
“I am a political writer and have written articles over the years about events as they unfold, which is the nice feature of blogging,” he began, explaining his role at the news site. “I have a decidedly liberal bent to my politics but have striven to write thoughtful, provocative pieces that try to define a rationale and logic to the policy prescriptions being offered.”
He went on to explain that, after seeing VAXXED, he was “compelled” to write a piece that urged at least a “serious national dialogue” on the allegations contained in the film, which of course also features a number of experts and other research. He said in the column he also drew attention to a number of other cases where the government appeared to have failed in its central role of protecting the safety and welfare of the American people.
“This is seriously troubling”
Continuing, he explained what had happened after he contributed his piece:
I sent it to Huffington Post as I normally do–I have an account there–and they published the article. About a half hour later as I was sending it out to my network I was alerted by some folks that when they went to access it it was not coming up. It turns out that they pulled down the original piece and when I tried to rewrite it I was alerted that permission was denied to my account. I have made at least a half dozen attempts to reach someone at HuffPo to alert them that there was a malfunction and over the course of the last two days have not received one response. I even went so far as to email Arianna herself.
It never crossed my mind that this might be some sort of censorship because it has never happened to me and the article, while provocative, is not beyond any bounds of journalistic or political propriety. … This is seriously troubling.
