Following the recent exoneration of Dr. Walker-Smith, who along with Dr. Andrew Wakefield was struck from the medical register and lost his medical license, I wonder out loud if this means Brian Deer was a) utterly wrong or b) partially wrong. This being a fairly mainstream blog with no particular affinity for Wakefield or against Deer, I would like to ask you in particular Dean, (because you are always fair) what do you think this means? Anti-Wakefield blogs have only gotten more vicious since this came out. They concede nothing. I am dismayed and confused. The Sunday Times has not reported on this. Nor CNN, which attacked Wakefield so vociferously (Anderson Cooper) nor has Brian Deer commented, nor the BMJ. (As far as I know.)
Does Walker-Smith’s Exoneration Exonerate Wakefield?
