Of course all of a sudden this would poop up again after the release of the IOM results. We already know thimerosal isn't the cause and the studies that came out, Kennedy pretty much disappeared. But let's not forget about:

June 2005 Kennedy authored an article in Rolling Stone and Salon.com alleging a government conspiracy to cover up connections between the vaccine preservative thimerosal and childhood autism. The article contained a number of factual errors, leading Salon.com to issue five corrections and ultimately to retract the article completely on January 16, 2011. The retraction was motivated by accumulating evidence of errors and scientific fraud underlying the vaccine-autism claim. Previous to this retraction, sometime in 2010, Rolling Stone had also deleted Kennedy's article from their archives without explanation. As of January 2011, the original, uncorrected, version of the article was still posted on Kennedy’s website, including his factual errors which Salon had corrected.

The rest is just the same old anti vaxxer unfounded theories and some out right lies. For instance they still claim the Poling case was the 'Family to Receive $1.5M+ in First-Ever Vaccine-Autism Court Award'. This is untrue and anyone can look it up. She was not awarded for autism.

What bassturds. Typical government protecting PHARMA. How else do you explain how a Pharmafia member like MERCK can killed between 50,000 and 250,000 and seriously injure 169,000 but be allowed to settle out of court and face no prison time. MERCK's VIOXX was a disaster, approved and licenced by the FDA which is lax in its approval of anything pharma. There is every reason to believe FDA knows vaccines cause autism, but sees it true role as protecting Big Pharma and not protecting consumers.
