This new documentary about vaccines and their potential dangers–one denied entry into film festivals as of late–is causing new controversy now that one of Huffington Post’s contributors has been banned over his supportive article of the documentary!
Lance Simmons said this about his banning:
It turns out that they pulled down the original piece and when I tried to rewrite it I was alerted that permission was denied to my account. I have made at least a half dozen attempts to reach someone at HuffPo to alert them that there was a malfunction and over the course of the last two days have not received one response. I even went so far as to email Arianna herself. It never crossed my mind that this might be some sort of censorship because it has never happened to me and the article, while provocative, is not beyond any bounds of journalistic or political propriety.
