Thursday’s CBS Evening News featured a segment in which chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook tag-teamed with the White House and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to attack Republicans for not going along with demands to create $1.9 billion (that could be passed through Congress) to allow the CDC and NIH to fight the Zika virus.

Media Abstain from Reporting CDC Abstinence Change

June 10th, 2015 11:40 AM
When it comes to the phrasing of a message, two words can make all the difference.  Last week, the CDC made a subtle change in the “Prevention Methods” section of its annual Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment report released June 5. Whereas abstinence had once been recommended as “a” reliable way to prevent the transmission of STDs, the report now calls it “the most” reliable way.

WATCH: Chris Matthews Has Al Sharpton-Like Teleprompter Flub

July 16th, 2014 9:00 PM
During a segment attacking conservative Republicans who have been critical of the Obama administration's handling of the border crisis, MSNBC's Chris Matthews had an amusing Al Sharpton-like teleprompter moment, repeatedly trying, and failing, to pronounce "dengue fever." It's curious that Matthews, who once served in the Peace Corps in Swaziland, seems unfamiliar with the term, given how…

July 15th, 2014 12:59 PM
Everyone knows there are gays and lesbians in everybody’s family. And no office would be complete without a sassy gay character. And just about every other kid in high school is wresting with his sexuality. I know. I watch TV. Except it isn’t true, and the Centers for Disease Control just proved it. A new comprehensive study by the CDC with over 33,000 participants has confirmed earlier…

Media Credited ‘Let’s Move’ With Obesity Drop, Ignore Flawed CDC

March 17th, 2014 12:55 PM
Michelle Obama’s highly touted “Let’s Move” campaign might not have its first victory after all. Despite healthy living advocates touting a decline in obesity among preschoolers, that CDC claim of a 43 percent decline in a decade might not be at all true. In fact, the data is so vague that the obesity rate may actually have increased, according to Reuters. ABC and CBS praised the statistic as…
