Letter: There’s a lot more to the CDC story

Thursday, December 28, 2017

I think your editorial, “Seven words and Trump’s White House,” (Dec. 20) misses the mark, by a lot.

I believe its much more likely, as reported by Slate that there is no ban on those words at the CDC. Slate reports that the so-called ban was by led by entrenched bureaucrats who work for the CDC itself, trying to fly under the radar to avoid budget scrutiny. Pretty much the exact opposite of what your editorial suggested.

I’ve learned, with all things Trump, it may be best to wait a few days to comment on “news” reports, lest they be ... wrong.
