Only have time to respond to this one post.
What exactly is there to report? An alleged "whistleblower" who allegedly worked for the CDC who is conveniently remaining anonymous supposedly talked to a well known anti vaxer who is a board member of Focus Autism "an organization which believes in the ongoing cover-up of the vaccine/autism link" on the phone?
Where is the story? Where is the evidence? The DeStefano thing has been discussed and debunked on many skeptic sites.
Trust me, journalists would be chomping at the bit if there was any evidence or validity to this story. They live for this kind of stuff.
For example, look at some of the things Brian Deer (who anti vaxers hate) has exposed and won awards for investigating:
"One of Deer's early investigations caused uproar in the drug industry when in 1986 he revealed that research into the safety of the contraceptive pill was fabricated at Deakin University, Australia, by scientist Professor Michael Briggs, employed by the German company Schering AG. In 1994, his investigation of The Wellcome Trust led to the withdrawal in the UK of a blockbuster antibiotic, Septrin, Bactrim, and the sale of the trust's pharmaceutical subsidiary Wellcome Foundation. In 2005, the withdrawal of the Merck painkiller Vioxx was followed by an investigation by Deer into the British medical chiefs behind the drug's introduction. In 2008, a celebrity psychiatrist, Raj Persaud, was suspended from practicing medicine and resigned his academic position after being found guilty of plagiarism following a Deer investigation. "
