Andrew Wakefield, the man responsible for riling everyone up against vaccines, has been discredited. His "research" was essentially flawed and his methods were unethical. The Lancet medical journal, which supported his findings originally, has retracted their support of both him and his findings.
I would think that after all the screaming about how horrible vaccines are, when a lot of that so-called "information" turns out to be pure, unadulterated bullshit, the screamers in question would at the very least, start screaming about the fact that they were spoon-fed bullshit by an entity other than "Big Pharma".

LoriKeet...Could not have said that better. I have a child with Autism, and I never believed for a minute it had anything at all to do with vax. What's really sad about all this, is that it took the focus away from important research...and to all those that scream Big Pharma is looking to get rich...they need to consider the MILLIONS made by Andrew Wakefield. But those that think it's the cause will never change their minds, because they can't be 'wrong', which is sad too.
