Mother Jones Deletes Pro-Vaccine Tweet to Fellow Vaccine Front Group

Mother Jones’ deleted tweet to Hank Campbell, president of the American Council on Science and Health

Mother Jones posted a tweet calling the vaccine-autism link “horseshit.” The socialist magazine then promptly deleted the tweet after finding it to be in agreement with a group it previously exposed as a corporate front group, American Council on Science and Health (ACSH). Like the ACSH, Mother Jones gets vaccine funding.

The exchange that led to Mother Jones’ tweet started when the editor called out ACSH on Twitter for banning discussion of the group’s finances on its website.

Mother Jones exposes the corporate ties of establishment conservative-friendly groups like ACSH. Yet Mother Jones is no less a front group. Ironically, ACSH’s president is right about that.

(ACSH’s 2013 financials obtained by none other than Mother Jones show ACSH hit up pharma for “project”[s] on vaccines.)

After Campbell’s tweet, Mother Jones responded, “I don’t know what this is about but if it’s about vaccine [sic] causing autism…that is horseshit.”

After Campbell tweeted a reply in agreement, the tweet was suddenly taken down.

Mother Jones is even more deceitful and hypocritical, too.
