Brian Deer’s huge conflict of interest (Oh my!)

“Brian Deer, he wrote the Times of London report that Dr. Andrew Wakefield had allegedly altered key research linking the measles, mumps and rubella triple vaccine to autism in children. Times of London did not bother to mention that the British investigation into whether or not Wakefield did that was a result of a complaint by Brian Deer, the guy who wrote the article about the investigation, never mentioned he was the individual who precipitated the investigation. The truth about the doctor’s research may be in doubt here, but not Deer’s vast conflicts interest, not the Times of London’s journalistic malfeasance. The paper’s owned by Rupert Murdoch. It’s my bad for forgetting that.”
