Wakefield was once the darling of media outlets. But after his demise following the GMC Fitness to Practise Proceeding and the determination of over forty counts of serious professional misconduct, his ouster from the former Thoughtful House (now Johnson Center for Child Health and Development) and subsequent British Medical Journal series by Brian Deer chronicling Wakefield's fraudulent activities, Wakefield is deservedly reduced to wallowing in the dregs.
Brian Deer gets invites to speak at notable universities and societies and wins press awards whilst Wakefield has been reduced to giving interviews to paranoid conspiracy-theorists Alex Jones and Mike Adams, nipping at Brian Deer's heels in the form of failed lawsuits and now appearing in little park sheds with a capacity of 40, a mile away from where Mr. Deer will be presenting to crowds numbering in the hundreds.
That has to sting. And for your visual entertainment, this is where Wakefield will be:
Myrick Gun Club, La Crosse, Wisconsin. Capacity: 40. Cost: $140/day.

And it looks like it might be a rainy day for the Wakefield fans. Too bad.
This is where Brian Deer will be presenting:
Centennial Hall and Clock Tower, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Capacity: 250.
Just go away Wakefield; you aren't relevant any longer and you certainly haven't done a damn thing to help benefit the autism community. It's a shame that people with more money than brains don't recognise Wakefield for being the unscrupulous money-suck he is and can't seem to find themselves legitimate figures to identify with.
