The media moguls controlling the MSM worldwide have a vested interest in hyping the swine flu epidemic to boost sales of vaccines and funding for the vaccine research industry. Rupert Murdoch (‘The Thing’) is a major shareholder, chairman and managing director of News Corporation… News Corp was the world’s second largest media conglomerate. In 2004, Murdoch announced that he was moving News Corp’s headquarters from Australia to the U.S. On February 2, 2009, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) pharmaceuticals announced the appointment of James Murdoch (‘The Thinglet’), son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, as a non-executive director. The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) is the largest research Institute in Australia specialising in child and adolescent ‘health.’ Located on the campus of the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, it is affiliated with the University of Melbourne. The MCRI went on to become the largest and most prestigious child health research centre in Australia, according to the February 7, 2009, Frankston Standard Leader. In 2009, MCRI has “over 1100 researchers,” the Leader reports. Rupert Murdoch’s daughter-in-law, Sarah Murdoch, has been the ambassador for the MCRI and a member of the development board since 2000.
The MCRI has six research themes, including one for “Infection, immunity and environment,” with research conducted at the “Centre for Clinical Research Excellence in Child and Adolescent Immunisation.” The CCRE is a joint MCRI, Melbourne University, and Menzies School of Health Research collaboration whose secretariat is located in the Department of General Medicine at the Royal Children’s Hospital campus. “Research focuses on clinical trials of new vaccines in healthy infants, children and adolescents, the epidemiology of vaccine preventable diseases (VPDs) and evaluation of the impact of population-delivered vaccine programmes, and mathematical modelling of vaccine-preventable diseases,” the MCRI website advises. Under “Collaborations,” the site lists: “Promotion of collaborations with Australian and overseas immunisation researchers, policy-makers, service providers and the vaccine industry.” Under a heading titled, “Commercialisation,” the website states: “The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute invites interested parties to take up the opportunity to invest in its wide portfolio of commercial biotechnologies.”
In a July 27, 2009 press release, MCRI announced that “children are being recruited for a pandemic H1N1 swine flu vaccine trial set to begin in Melbourne next week.” – “About 100 Victorian children aged between 6 months to 8 years are needed for the study, which will be run by the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and the University of Melbourne from as early as next week,” the press release stated. “They will be among 400 children recruited across 5 States for the Federal Government required trials of the vaccine, produced by Australian biopharmaceutical company CSL,” it advised.
On October 4, 2005, the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute issued a similar press release stating: “Bird flu vaccine trial to begin. Trials of a bird flu vaccine are set to begin in Melbourne this week as researchers prepare against the threat of an influenza pandemic,” MCRI advised. “The study, a collaborative project between the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and University of Melbourne, is being sponsored by Australian pharmaceutical company CSL Limited,” the press release stated.
Media mogul, Mortimer Zuckerman, also has a research centre named after him. On May 10, 2009, the New York Times reported that Zuckerman had “pledged $100 million to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre, the largest donation in the hospital’s history, and one of the largest ever given to an American medical centre.” – “Sloan-Kettering will name its new research centre on the Upper East Side for Mr. Zuckerman, the real estate developer and owner of The Daily News and U.S. News & World Report,” the Times noted. “Zuckerman advances vaccine research and development at the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Centre in association with the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre and Rockefeller University,” according to Dr Leonard Horowitz, a Harvard-trained authority in vaccinations and emerging diseases with a masters degree in public health, in a September 30, 2009, report by Sherri Kane. Zuckerman is also a leading financier of the American Lyme Disease Foundation that heavily promoted GlaxoSmithKline’s disastrous Lymerix vaccine, Horowitz says. “This vaccine was pulled from the market following hundreds-of-thousands of reported cases of recipients suffering post-vaccination symptoms of Lyme disease.”
The great bird flu hoax serves as an excellent example of use of the MSM to pump out fear mongering propaganda. On June 20, 2005, Zuckerman wrote a commentary in US News and World Report titled, “A Nightmare Scenario – H5N1 Pandemic,” and stated: “Should it develop certain genetic changes, international health experts warn, bird flu could spark a Global pandemic, infecting as much of a quarter of the world’s population and killing as many as 180 million to 360 million people—at least seven times the number of AIDS deaths, all within a matter of weeks.” – “In the worst previous catastrophic pandemic, in 1918, more than 20 million died from the Spanish flu,” Zuckerman wrote… “We must prioritise research money to develop a vaccine, expand the production of flu vaccine, and stockpile antiviral medications.” (Comment: monies from the ‘kept in the dark’ taxpayers).
Mainstream media cannot be objective when reporting, because it is riddled with conflicts of interest involving the vaccine industry.
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), ENGERIX-B (Hepatitis B vaccine for children): The package insert for this vaccine reveals that it was ‘safety’ tested against a different vaccine – rather than a saline based placebo (as should happen).
“What the pharmaceutical company should have done is inject one group with the vaccine and the other group with a non-vaccine placebo (i.e., saline),” writes Heinze. “What the pharmaceutical company did, instead, was inject one group with the Hepatitis B vaccine, and the other group with a different vaccine… Then they ‘monitored’ both groups and ‘found’ that the recipients of their vaccine had ‘no significant difference in the frequency or severity of adverse experiences’ as compared to the recipients of other vaccines.”
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) was in the News for fraud,bribery and research corruption of up up to £300 million. Further research indicates they have a history of criminal wrong doing.They were even investigated by BBC ‘Panorama.’
