After publishing allegations of fraud in the British Medical Journal against the authors of The 1998 Royal Free Hospital teams’ Lancet paper, in the face of incisive criticism from many quarters journalist Brian Deer appears to have vanished from the web.
Mr Deer normally is very quick to post on blogs around the internet but he is not answering the criticisms of his work. This includes on his own blog in The Guardian newspaper which he was given this week and on The British Medical Journal’s responses.
No response has been received here on CHS, on Age of Autism, nor on blogs where Mr Deer regularly posts including the infamous LeftBrainRightBrain blog and even on ORAC’s blog [Dr David Gorski].
You can see criticisms posted at the following locations and there is no sign of any answer from Brian Deer so far.
ORAC [Dr David Gorki’s blog] responded to questions posted for Brian Deer by blocking CHS from his site. You are of course welcome to visit – links below – and ask Mr Deer to answer, to see the criticisms and find out if Brian Deer has answered anywhere.
If you find anywhere that Mr Deer has answered be sure to let us know.
