Del Bigtree, producer of Vaxxed, was an Emmy Award-winning producer on the daytime talk show The Doctors, for six years. With a background both as a filmmaker and an investigative medical journalist, he is best known for combining visually impactful imagery, raw emotional interviews, and unbiased investigative research into stories that push the envelope of daytime television. Some of his most thought-provoking episodes include a rare televised debate between Monsanto’s head of toxicology Dr. Donna Farmer and GMO activist Jeffrey Smith and an exposé on a “gold standard” medical test that mistakenly indicts loving parents for child abuse, causing their children to be remanded to Child Protective Services.

When Bigtree began investigating the story of the CDC Whistleblower and the fraud perpetrated by the CDC, he soon realized that he had stumbled upon a story of corruption and deception beyond any he had ever seen. Further investigation into the wrongful destruction of Andrew Wakefield’s career orchestrated by Big Pharma and the UK Department of Health inspired him to focus all of his attention on Vaxxed.

Since then, Del has been traveling the nation, meeting with politicians and standing with parents in their fight to maintain our freedom of choice. He is the host of HighWire Talk, a show that finds the answers to the questions everyone else is afraid to ask.

Today we’re digging into a controversial topic: vaccines. I know this is a touchy topic, and this episode is not about telling you how or what to think – I am not having this conversation to be pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine. I am pro-question and pro-clarity, and I am here to learn all sides of the story and offer a different perspective.

That’s why I sat down with Del Bigtree, the Producer of Vaxxed – a must-see documentary for anyone who will potentially have kids and wants to stay informed. I sat up late one night watching the documentary, and as the story unfolded, it just made me so angry.

There’s just so much intentional misinformation out there on this topic, and on this documentary. 

Did you know that Andrew Wakefield – the doctor who lost his license after being tried for publishing a fraudulent paper in 1998 linking the MMR vaccine and autism – never actually came out against vaccines? Did you know that Dr. Wakefield was one of 13 co-authors of that report, yet he was the only one tried for fraud (and he just so happened to be the only one digging further into vaccine safety)? Did you know that Vaxxed isn’t an anti-vaxxer movie?

It’s insane how much we don’t know – and that’s why we need people out there who aren’t afraid to ask some big questions.

Always be skeptical. Arm yourself with knowledge.
