The full New York Times article. The Vindy version is pretty watered down. No mention of his use of psych meds.
The mother an RN said she has aspergers as well as her son. She and he had a very active online life.
Here is an article about their online activities.
Rather disturbing comment here from his Facebook page:
I have a pill bottle with like five types of pills mixed in. I don't know which ones are the sleep aids so I just took four of each.
People cry we need better access to mental healthcare. This kid had it, so did Adam Lanza who also supposedly had aspergers and a mother obsessed with guns. How negligent these mothers were. Anyone remotely familiar with aspergers knows they tend to have obsessions. What a dangerous obsession to have.
And I hate the fact aspergers is now lumped under the autism umbrella label. Thank psychiatry for that dumb move. People with "autism" don't need to be feared as potential gun toting killers. They have enough problems to contend with.

If I was researching vaccines I would get a copy of the CDC recommended vaccine schedule. Look at all the vaccines my child is due to get. Then find the package inserts. Study the ingredients and look them up on the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet)
I'd also look up each vaccine on the Vaccine Safety Datalink.
I hate I was utterly clueless as to what I was agreeing to and how serious and lasting those decisions would be.

I am not saying autism is always caused by vaccines. Autism is a psychological label. I know there are children who have never had a single vaccine and are diagnosed with autism. I feel vaccines are the biggest reason we have seen such an explosion in the diagnosis of autism in the last 20 years. I laughed when you asked how much money Hooker and Thompson are making. I'm sure it pales incomparison to Gerberding's CEO salary and stock. And the millions Thorsen stole from the CDC. They both work regular jobs. Thompson is still st the CDC and Booker has a job. He's got an "autistic" son to take care of so you know how that is.AND neither wrote the book. An attorney named Kevin Barry did. He heads the Elizabeth Bert law center.The book is to make people aware of what has happened with autism vaccine resesrch at the CDC. Either you're interested in knowing or your not. My one desire is for parents to know what they are agreeing to when they get their kids vaccinated.I soley relied on the vaccines are good and everyone knows it thought process. Only to regret my ignorance.If parents thoroughly research and still wish to vaccinate at least they are doing so with an educated and informed position. I feel I was duped and misled. And abandoned. Mainstream medicine has nothing of value to offer by way of healing from these unacknowledged vaccine injuries. Yes, Walter this is emotional because it's personal. You probably will never change your opinion that vaccines are the greatest. Unless of course you witness and experience a clear reaction in someone you love. Or you could continue engage in cognitive dissonance about the experience. All medical treatments have side effects. Vaccines are not any more special or different. They are only special and different in the fact that no one making them, selling them, or giving them bears any responsibility for what they do. And because of this fact they aren't nearly as safe or effective as they should be.

Walter I had my kids vaccinated (to say immunized is incorrect) too. After my son got his MMR/varivax vaccines at 12 months he regressed in development and fell ill. Infection after infection, allergies, bowel problems and other immune related problems. His story is not unique tens of thousands of parents report similar stories. We know something catastophic happened to our children.Now, we have a senior scientist at the CDC come foward and say yeah we lied. We omitted data. I feel guilty when I meet families of kids with autism. He gets a whistleblower attorney to help him turn over all these documents. And over a year later we have nothing in the news about this. No hearings scheduled and kids are still getting all their vaccines. And some unlucky ones will regress and fall ill. And autism that was 1in 2500 when my son was diagnosed is now 1 in 50 and will probably eventually be 1 in 2 children. Do you know who Julie Gerberding is? She was the CDC director from 2002 until 2009. That's when these studies in question occurred. After she left the agency she waited the one year required legal waiting period and then when to work for Merck. MERCK makes the MMR. The vaccine parents call the autism vaccine. She took over their global vaccine division she recently sold some stock for 5 million dollars.This is about money. And people will do just about anything for money. Do you know who Poul Thorsen is? He was a researcher doing autism studies forcthe CDC many of his studies are the ones they use to refute the link. He embezzled millions from the CDC He bought a house and a Harley. He fled to his native Denmark. He is an international fugitive. Look him up! He is living and workig freely there because the CDC apparently doesn't want the publicity to bring him back and get their (our) money back.Clearly you like being in the dark on these matters.

The book is easy to read
By Avid Reader on August 21, 2015
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book contains the complete transcript of the legally taped conversations between Dr. Hooker and Dr. William Thompson, CDC scientist and whistleblower. Dr. Thompson was author of the studies that the government continually uses to assure parents that there is no link between autism and vaccines. He now alleges that those very studies were manipulated and fraudulent, intentionally managed so that parents were not told the truth - that vaccines can, and do, cause autism.The book also explains how the organization Autism Speaks, which assures parents repeatedly that autism is a genetic condition that has nothing to do with vaccines, is a front for the CDC, funded by the very same people and acting purely as spokespersons for the CDC and pharmaceutical agenda.Before Big Pharma sends people here to post one star reviews and cry 'debunk', be aware that this case cannot possibly have been 'debunked' - the case has not been even heard, in spite of requests from Congressman Posey to members of Congress to read the thousands of documents that he has obtained under the Freedom of Information Act to support Dr. Thompson's claims.Shockingly, even to those who knew about this case for over a year, the book reveals how the government has helped manipulate the media by instructing them to not give 'weight' to any scientist who questions vaccine safety. Many of us have known for years that the media will attack anyone who questions vaccines because they rely on Big Pharma advertising revenue, but this book pulls pieces together to help the reader understand just how deep this corruption runs, and how so many pieces of the puzzle fit together.The book is easy to read, and lays to rest the media claims that the CDC Whistleblower is 'debunked' or a trivial matter. Because much of the book is a direct transcript of various phone conversations, it is sometimes a little confusing, but the author then does a good job of giving an overview of the whistleblower case.It will now be interesting to see how this story progresses. The author's plea is that parents, outraged by this intentional policy of lies and deception, spread the story themselves, through social media and word of mouth. For sure, mainstream media wont' touch it, and if they do, they will pay lip-service to their Pharma masters. Just watch these reviews! This book was only just released, but I'm betting that within a few days, there will be dozens of Pharma tools on here giving one star reviews and crying 'Debunk!'.

Walter-the science is fraudulent, flawed, cherry picked, plain old corrupt.
I don't care what the NIH, CDC and other so called public health officials say. They've been lying and covering this up for almost 2 decades. The CDC whistle blower said the CDC is paralyzed now because of it. They are afriad to do autism studies for fear of where it may lead.

All I can say is your research is limited and your experience is too.
Maybe someday experience will show you all the research you hold near and dear is wrong.
Vaccines can and do cause autism and the government knows it. They've low key paid out court cases. Which I shared with you above. And you ignored because you refeuse to consider the information you have been fed is a lie.
Also the government knows and is supressing with the assistance of a complacent mainstream media about a CDC senior researcher turned whistleblower has come forward and said he was involved in omitting data in prominent vaccine studies. We are trying to get hearings as a Republican congressman has possession of thousands of documents showing the malfease.

I've got news for you Walter most adults haven't had a vaccine since they were a child. Why arent we having massive outbreaks? Most adults over the age of 50 have had diseases like measles, mumps, and chicken pox and lived to tell about it. Vaccines are overly credited for reducing diseases. When improved sanitation and improved diets and living conditions should get the credit.
When I was young we weren't hyper focused on vaccines that is because vaccines didn't get the free pass they have today. They are the untouchable cash cow for mainstream medicine. We also didn't have 1 in 50 kids with autism. ADHD, ADD, ODD, and every other alphabet soup emotional, behavioral or learning disability. And kids with life threatening allergies, asthma, diabetes, seizures, and once rare cancers etc...all by products of our out of control vaccine schedule
You can't fool mother nature and our poor health is a testament to that. Chronic disease and disability rampant.
I'd rather my kid take their chances with chicken pox or measles than live a life riddled with chronic medical conditions and non verbal autism.

I bet you trust Sharyl Atkisson's reporting.
