The fervent environmentalist and nephew of former president John. F. Kennedy has a strong stance on vaccines. In 2005, Kennedy wrote an article for Rolling Stone and Salon.com. It was titled “Deadly Immunity.” In the article, Kennedy writes about a possible government conspiracy theory about the government wanting to cover up the purported link between thimerosal and autism. However, the article contained factual errors, leading up to Salon.com retracting the article entirely in 2011. He has also authored books on the subject, as well as teaming up with actor Robert De Niro. The duo offered up a monetary reward of $100,000 to anyone that can prove that vaccines are safe.
