You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Jack Ruby. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.
Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:
- Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
- Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.
If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Gamaliel (talk) 23:19, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Explanation of my revert
I want to point out a few issues with this edit to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. First of all, why did you remove the part that says "However, the scientific consensus is that vaccines do not cause autism."? You seem to say this is "outdated information", yet it is sourced to a reliable medical source, and you did not cite a WP:MEDRS for the fact that "the issue continues to divide the scientific community". For more info on proper sourcing please see WP:RS and WP:MEDRS.
Also, it seems that thevaccinereaction.org and a video of the meeting are the only sources you cite for the sentence (you also cited the CDC's homepage but I am not sure why) "revelations in 2014 by CDC senior scientist and whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, provided damning proof that the CDC had doctored and hid findings showing the MMR vaccine was causing autism in children taking part in their CDC study" thevaccinereaction.org is not a WP:RS and it is WP:OR to draw these conclusions from a video of the proceedings, you would need to cite a source that said this was proof of a coverup. (and describing stuff as "damning" violates WP:NPOV)
