Robert DeNiro is one of 3 partners in the Tribeca Film Festival. That organization accepted Vaxxed, a documentary film directed by the now fully exonerated Andrew Wakefield, MD about corruption at the CDC and elsewhere intentionally suppressing the damage done by Merck’s MMR Vaccine for over a decade. Whistleblower William W. Thompson, PhD, presented his documents, including the original data, to Representative Posey of the US Congress and President Obama granted Thompson official status as a Whistleblower earlier this year.
DeNiro, who has an autistic son, requested that Tribeca screen the video and defended it just days before Tribeca pulled the film without stating more than “We have concerns about the film.”
Dr. Wakefield Responds:

To our dismay, we learned today about the Tribeca Film Festival’s decision to reverse the official selection of Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.
Robert De Niro’s original defense of the film happened Friday after a one-hour conversation between De Niro and and Bill Posey, the congressman who has interacted directly and at length with the CDC Whistleblower (William Thompson) and whose team has scrutinized the documents that prove fraud at the CDC.
It is our understanding that persons from an organization affiliated with the festival have made unspecified allegations against the film – claims that we were given no opportunity to challenge or redress. We were denied due process.
We have just witnessed yet another example of the power of corporate interests censoring free speech, art, and truth.
Tribeca’s action will not succeed in denying the world access to the truth behind the film Vaxxed.
We are grateful to the many thousands of people who have already mobilized including doctors, scientists, educators and the autistic community.
We will be pressing forward and sharing our plans in the very near future.
