This guy is such a douche. I can't believe skeptics cling to his word as gospel. He gives me the creeps.
One thing I can say, is that crap would never fly in the states. Invasive journalism and violations of privacy are evidently par for the course with him though. Only a self-righteous, sanctimonious gasbag like Deer would have the nerve to talk trash worldwide through his website then threaten someone with slander or copyright violations for calling him out on his verbal diarrhea.
While I don't care much for Mr Deer personally, his outstanding investigative journalism kicked arse - one that desperately needed kicking, namely Andy Wakefield's. The sophistic and rather pathetic tirades of the AoA editors (was Deer a complainant or an informant of the GMC) do not change the fact that Wakefield was fuelling MMR fears while pursuing a patent on a single measles vaccine (honi soit...), he caused absolutely unnecessary very invasive procedures to be performed on disabled children, in the course of which one boy was dramatically injured (gut perforated in several places), and, as we learned in the Autism Omnibus Proceedings (Cedillo), he seems to have forged lab records (alternatively worked totally sloppily) to be able to claim to have found vaccine measles virus in the guts of autistic children (which was proven wrong multiple times).
Oh there - the British Medical Journal calls out Wakefield's fraud (and they say fraud). Apparently, he willfully changed patients' details/medical files to be able to claim a connection between MMR (or MCV) and autism - of course we all knew that, but to read it in plain terms in the BMJ is certainly satifying:
