“… the evidence of sleazy and scandalous behavior of the Murdoch papers has expanded geometrically.” Michael Collins
Rupert Murdoch’s news empire faces intense media and legal scrutiny. Current revelations focus on Murdoch’s News of the World hacking into the Dowler family’s voice messages during the kidnapping of their 12 year old daughter Milly, and Murdoch’s London Times for allegedly having illegally obtained the financial, property and medical information of former UK Labour Party Leader Gordon Brown during the time he was chancellor.

A 2010 exposure of Murdoch’s Times of London revealed that it had published forged documents purporting to show that Iran planned to do nuclear experiments for an atomic weapon, and as Collins points out, it was Murdoch’s “drumbeat of misinformation” that helped mislead people into believing that Saddam Hussein was involved in the 9/11 attack, supporting Bush’s invasion of Iraq, though intelligence was “unsubstantiated, contradicted, or even non-existent,” according to the Senate Intelligence Committee Unveils Final Phase II Reports on Prewar Iraq Intelligence from June 5, 2008.
But what has not yet been covered is the media circus Murdoch’s London Times created internationally as it fabricated lies against a respected British doctor, with consequences that could impact the lives of billions of children in the world.
The London Times headlines read:
Callous, unethical and dishonest’: Dr Andrew Wakefield,
MMR scare doctor Andrew Wakefield makes fortune in US,
Andrew Wakefield & MMR – the investigation – by Brian Deer,
London Times: MMR doctor Andrew Wakefield ’abused his position of trust.’
Andrew Wakefield was a respected British gastroenterologist who began research into digestive problems in autistic children in collaboration with other doctors in the UK, after being called by parents seeking help. His work indicated severe digestive issues and he asked for more investigation of the MMR vaccine.
Brian Deer is the reporter who savaged Dr Wakefield from the pages of the Sunday Times, a paper managed by Rupert Murdoch’s son James Murdoch who is on the board of GlaxoSmithKline which makes the MMR. Deer researched his case with the help of Medico-Legal Investigations, a private enquiry company whose only source of funding is the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry. Deer was both the journalist writing on Wakefield and the person who brought a case of fitness to practice medicine to the General Medical Council, and then wrote about the proceedings as well.
Parents whose children were treated by Wakefield were denied the right to be heard before a real court on claims against the vaccine manufacturers. The High Court judge who denied them was Sir Nigel Davis, whose brother is an executive board member of Elsevier, publishers of the Lancet which removed Wakefield’s 1998 paper on the subject, and is on the Board of GlaxoSmithKline.
With the London Times giving Brian Deer free reign to attack Wakefield, media closed in like shark. Coincidentally, the head of Reuters serves on the Board of Merck, and Miriam Stoppard who writes at the Daily Mirror newspaper is married to Sir Christopher Hogg, who was Chairman of GlaxoSmith Kline in 2004. Dr Kumar, the Chairman of the GMC Fitness to Practice Panel who ruled against Dr Andrew Wakefield, would not answer questions about his shareholdings in GlaxoSmithKline, and said there was no such thing as vaccine damage and that any parents who claimed that their children had suffered such would be treated with scorn and contempt.
Wakefield lost his license to practice and left the UK. What had he done that Murdoch’s machine went into action, creating fictions about him, getting his work pulled from the Lancet, getting him brought before the GMC to ultimately lose his license?
Wakefield suggested that until further studies, the measles vaccine should be given as a separate vaccine rather than in combination as the MMR (measles, Mumps, Rubella). He did not suggest that children not take a measles vaccine, only that there be caution until the MMR was investigated further. This reasonable suggestion was met immediately by the single measles vaccines being taken off the market.
Wakefield’s work with Professor Walker-Smith and Professor Simon Murch had touched a nerve. The pharmaceutical industry, an industry that makes six times more than any industry on Wall Street is heavily invested in vaccines (in the US, the companies do not have to prove efficacy to get FDA approval) and is moving on every front to have their product mandated.
To suggest that one of the main vaccines for children might be destroying them mentally and physiologically was a problem, yet the study showed severe digestive system damage and mitochondrial dysfunction, as well. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been confirmed by other studies, but taking down Wakefield in a big way became a means of discrediting anyone questioning vaccines. Wakefield was cast as a fraud and so all those voicing concerns were dismissed by reference to him.
This Alan Golding documentary gives background which can allow people to judge the credibility of Murdoch’s reporter for themselves:
To understand how serious all this is, and thus how much is at stake for millions if not billions of children, one needs to appreciate how profound it is for mitochondria not to function normally. Science Daily explains:
“Children with autism are far more likely to have deficits in their ability to produce cellular energy than are typically developing children, a new study by researchers at UC Davis has found. The study, published in theJournal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), found that cumulative damage and oxidative stress in mitochondria, the cell’s energy producer, could influence both the onset and severity of autism, suggesting a strong link between autism and mitochondrial defects…. Mitochondria are the primary source of energy production in cells and carry their own set of genetic instructions, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), to carry out aerobic respiration. Dysfunction in mitochondria already is associated with a number of other neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia ….”
One study cited in Wikipedia says:
“Mitochondrial disorders may be caused by mutations, acquired or inherited, in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) or in nuclear genes that code for mitochondrial components. They may also be the result of acquired mitochondrial dysfunction due to adverse effects of drugs, infections, or other environmental causes (see MeSH). … Defects in nuclear-encoded mitochondrial genes are associated with hundreds of clinical disease phenotypes including anemi, dementia, hypertension, lymphoma, retinopathy, seizures, and neurodevelopmental disorders.”
In opening up the issue mitochrondrial dysfunction and urging a shift back to a single measles vaccine (an earlier vaccine), Wakefield may have stumbled onto something explosive. The MMR vaccine appears to be the third generation of vaccines, what are called DNA vaccines. They involve shooting genetically engineered material into the body, often using gene guns that were used into the genetic engineering of seeds, in order to achieve DNA “uptake.”
From Wikipedia on methods of delivery of DNA Vaccines:
“The two most popular approaches are injection of DNA in saline, using a standard hypodermic needle, and gene gun delivery. … Injection in saline is normally conducted intramuscularly (IM) in skeletal muscle, or intradermally (ID), with DNA being delivered to the extracellular spaces. This can be assisted by electroporation; by temporarily damaging muscle fibres with myotoxins such as bupivacaine; or by using hypertonic solutions of saline or sucrose. Immune responses to this method of delivery can be affected by many factors, including needle type, needle alignment, speed of injection, volume of injection, muscle type, and age, sex and physiological condition of the animal being injected.
“Gene gun delivery, the other commonly used method of delivery, ballistically accelerates plasmid DNA (pDNA) that has been adsorbed onto gold or tungsten microparticles into the target cells, using compressed helium as an accelerant.
“Alternative delivery methods have included aerosol instillation of naked DNA on mucosal surfaces, such as the nasal and lung mucosa, and topical administration of pDNA to the eye and vaginal mucosa. Mucosal surface delivery has also been achieved using cationic liposome-DNA preparations, biodegradable microspheres, attenuated Shigella or Listeria vectors for oral administration to the intestinal mucosa, and recombinant [genetically engineered] adenovirus vectors.”
The DNA vaccines depend on DNA uptake. However,”[t]his phenomenon has not been the subject of much research, so the actual mechanism of DNA uptake is not known.”
And what is meant by DNA uptake? Does it mean as it sounds, that genetically engineered material is taken up by the DNA of those being injected with it? And if so, does that mean that these vaccines are genetically altering (or “engineering”) those receiving the vaccines?
Is it possible that the mitochondrial dysfunction seen in autistic children is a result of their DNA having been compromised? The new DNA vaccines derive from failed gene therapy. Are the new DNA vaccines a continuation of experiments in genetic engineering, being conducted on millions of children?
Cloned animals also suffer from mitochondrial dysfunction. Professor Joe Cummins writes:
“In the cloned animals, mitochondria are transferred to the eggs along with the nucleus from somatic cells, leading to a mixture of mitochondrial genes from egg and the somatic cell from which the nucleus was obtained. This mixture of mitochondria (called heteroplasmy) introduces incompatibility between mitochondrial and nuclear genetic material that contribute to the high rates of abnormalities and deaths among clones and leads to cell and tissue disruption as the cloned animal develops. The impact of mitochondrial dysfunction is great because the mitochondria provide energy for the cells.”
It seems that people have already been genetically engineered. “Dr. Joseph Cummins, professor emeritus of biology at the University of Western Ontario, says, ‘It seems likely that the transplants are going on, but very, very quietly in a regulatory vacuum, perhaps.’”

The 23 new DNA vaccines have been linked to autism. Are the new DNA vaccines altering and/or damaging children’s DNA, the code of life?
An overview of Murdoch’s connections to the pharmaceutical industry and international bankers cannot answer that question but at a minimum suggest serious problems with vaccines with the greatest wealth power in the world promoting them, nonetheless. MedicalVeritas.org is credited with this piece:
“Lloyd Blankfein is co-chairman with media mogul Rupert Murdoch in the David Rockefeller-founded Partnership for New York City (PFNYC), chartered by the Royal Family of England. This group is currently advancing a world leading biotechnology trust, heavily invested in “genetopharmaceuticals” and flu vaccine genetic engineering. [Emphasis added.]
“Members of this group, along with George Soros-directed assets, virtually monopolized the genetics industry during the 1990s, culminating in the corporate privatization of the Human Genome Project.
“Involvement of these economic leaders in the vaccine industry is most revealing and even shocking as the following facts evidence:
“The Baxter Corporation, indicted for spreading HIV contaminated blood products during the late 1970s through the 1980s; a cheap lethal heparin substitute in 2008; and H5N1 contaminated seasonal flu vaccines in early 2009, was directed by Mr. Tony White, Soros’s appointee to lead the privately owned Applera Company following their obvious heist of the Human Genome Project during the late 1990s. The sudden privatization of what had previously been public, non-profit, patentable property, also implicated co-sponsors–the U.S. Department of Energy and The Wellcome Trust of London.
“Today, the American Baxter Company is a major H1N1 vaccine maker for European nations, and at the center of controversy concerning the expanding outbreak of recombinant H1N1-hemorrhagic pneumonia. Many experts conclude the 2009 H1N1 triple reassortant sourced from a lab, similar to its 1977 relative.
“Rupert Murdoch’s mother, Elizabeth, Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, and daughter-in-law, Sarah Murdoch, steward the Royal Women’s Hospital and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, respectively, in Australia. They oversaw their staff conduct H1N1 vaccine trials on infants, children, and pregnant women in 2009, collaborating with Merck’s subsidiary, CSL.
“Furthermore, Rupert Murdoch’s son James oversees GlaxoSmithKline, another major H1N1 vaccine maker. Regarding efficacy, and more importantly safety, the CSL/Merck H1N1 vaccine tested in Murdoch-family directed facilities was simply assumed to be both safe and effective according to its package insert. The new and old vaccine had ‘no controlled clinical studies demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with’ the company’s seasonal flu vaccine, ‘AFLURIA.’
“Likewise, vaccine safety was speciously assumed following assessment days comparing those who received AFLURIA (with or without mercury preservative, confounding everyone’s analysis) with those who received some undisclosed “European-licensed trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine as an active control.” This “active control” was preserved with mercury.
“In plainer language, an unidentified arguably neurotoxic vaccine served as a ‘placebo control.’ Since no inactive placebo control such as saline was used, the study design was obviously flawed, confounding, biased, and arguably fraudulent. It may have precluded observing statistically significant differences between experimental and control groups falsely evidencing safety from lacking adverse event differentials. This intentional obfuscation exclusively benefited those with conflicting interests, and/or those inclined to rely on safety assurances to the detriment of public health and medical science. Yet, Murdoch-directed News Corp. assets heavily promoted these risky H1N1 vaccines as urgently required, safe and effective.
“Curiously, in 2008, The Wellcome Trust of London’s Biocentre, the UK’s largest non-governmental source of funds for biomedical research, created a special grant program to heavily fund research into alleged mysterious neurodegenerative diseases linked by censored science to thimerosal mercury.
“The Wellcome Trust’s alleged divestment of conflicting pharmaceutical interests following Burroughs Wellcome’s sale of stock to Glaxo PLC, created GlaxoWellcome, currently GlaxoSmithKlein. This allegation of ‘divestment’ is discredited by more than the fund’s involvement in the Human Genome Project’s pirating, implicating George Soros and David Rockefeller-linked investors. Again, GlaxoSmithKlein makes the H1N1 vaccine, and Rupert Murdoch’s heir apparent, James Murdoch, oversees their Board of Directors.
“And that’s not all. . . Rupert Murdoch’s Co-Chairman of the PFNYC, Lloyd Blankfein is a major shareholder in the Goldman-Sachs/AstraZeneca partnership. He directed AstraZeneca’s $15 billion acquisition of MedImmune, the H1N1 FLUMIST maker.
“Besides James and Rupert’s News Corp directing film makers Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Brothers, the Western World’s mass-mediated mind-set is reinforced by PFNYC “partner” and Reuters News Service CEO, Thomas H. Glocer. Glocer sits on the Board of Directors of Merck & Company, whose (CSL) H1N1 vaccine, and (Merck’s) Pneumovax vaccine, is broadening markets as the main ingredient–laboratory engineered H1N1 virus–mutates, as in the Ukraine, becoming more deadly.
“Additionally, those poorly-paid inadequately-trained pharmacists administering vaccines in supermarkets, draining doctors’ revenue streams, reflect the ‘hostile takeover’ of clinical medicine by Goldman-Sachs’s limited partner, PFNYC ‘Corporate Partner,’ and world-leading ‘buyout firm,’ Kolberg, Kravitz, Roberts & Company (KKR) This ‘immunization’ industry-altering practice is promoted as a “cost-saving” invention according to KKR’s director of Safeway supermarkets, Steven Burd, founder of the Coalition to Advance Healthcare Reform (CAHR), popularly called ‘Obamacare.’”
Whatever the answer to questions about the new DNA vaccines, it is obvious that Rupert Murdoch’s connections to the pharmaceutical industry and vaccines are very deep. No investigation of Murdoch’s crimes should omit his efforts to use his media empire to prevent exposure of potential dangers from the MMR vaccines and possibly all the new DNA vaccines.
