“My name is Del Bigtree. I am the producer of the film Vaxxed: From Cover-Up To Catastrophe.
From the moment I started working on this movie, people have asked why I would choose to leave my career as a respected producer on the medical talk show, The Doctors, to make a movie with Dr. Andrew Wakefield, arguably the most controversial figure in modern medicine. The answer is I had no choice.
Upon meeting Andrew (who I will refer to as Andy) I was haunted by all of the headlines that preceded him, “Baby Killer,” “Father of the anti-vax movement,” “The fraudulent Doctor who created a fake paper linking vaccines to autism,” “The doctor who performed unnecessary experiments on innocent children,” the list went on and on. But when Andy showed me the documentary film he was making about Dr. William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, I was blown away. The evidence was undeniable. The CDC had lied to the world. It was the most important story of my life. As an Emmy Award-winning medical producer I knew I had the skill to help Andy deliver a documentary about complicated science, but before I could move forward I had to investigate Andy himself.
As soon as I started looking into the facts behind the case against Andy I realized that I had been repeating a lot of bumper sticker slogans about his story that wasn’t actually true.
To begin with, I was shocked to discover that Andy never came out against vaccines.
What Andy had recommended was that parents vaccinate their children with the single Measles, single Mumps, and single Rubella vaccines instead of the triple MMR vaccine, which many parents were blaming for their child’s regression into autism.”
The rest became the greatest medical misdirection scheme of all time where vaccines administration would only increase and these three would become multimillionaires and absolutely little to nothing would be accomplished. Look at where we are at today.
