  • Donald Trump Bans The CDC From Using These Seven Words

    http://www.newsweek.com/trump-bans-c...n-words-750383
    Donald Trump’s administration has reportedly banned the Center for Disease Control from using seven words and phrases, including “science-based” and “transgender,” in documents it is working on for next year's budget.
    In an astounding move, officials at the CDC were told in a Thursday meeting they were not to use certain words, a policy analyst told The Washington Post.
    The other banned words were diversity, entitlement, vulnerable, fetus, and evidence-based, with the CDC staff in the meeting reportedly told that rather than using the phrases evidence-based or science-based, they should instead say: “The “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes.”
    Seriously ??

    Ban words. Bad shit usually starts from use of words. They cause too much harm. When will this madness end?

      from the article in the OP....it seems very reasonable to use a more descriptive phrase than the short one adjective phrase "science based".......the new phrase reads "The CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes", which conveys a more meaningful group of descriptors. Standards and wishes, of the community are based on science, is not an inaccurate method of describing the recommendations of the CDC in that it is a federal government agency and must be aware of and attempt to suggest methods of avoiding disease and death in conjunction with US social structure as based on scientific findings, not merely reliant on science as the sole arbiter.

        This is getting better and better

        http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare...gencies-report

        Multiple agencies in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have reportedly been told by the Trump administration that they cannot use certain phrases in official documents.

        A second HHS agency was told not to use the phrases “entitlement,” “diversity” and “vulnerable," in documents. It was also told to use "ObamaCare" as opposed to the "Affordable Care Act" and to refer to "marketplaces," where people purchase health insurance, as "exchanges.
        According to the Post, similar guidance on word choice has been issued at the State Department. Employees at the State Department have been told to call sex education "sexual risk avoidance," which primarily refers to abstinence-only education.
        Well, forbidding some words in agencies reports. I would have never expected that in USA. In NK, China or Venezuela, yes but not in USA .....

          Aaaaaand Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald just announce this was false.



          CDC director denies reports that staffers are banned from using certain words

          The director of the Center for Disease Control is denying recent reports the agency has banned staff from using certain words related to their work.
          "I want to assure you there are no banned words at CDC," Brenda Fitzgerald, the director, said Sunday on Twitter. "We will continue to talk about all our important public health programs."

            Just to add that Newsweek (like TIME) have gone waaaaay downhill over the past 20 years.

                Well, thanks. That's somewhere reassuring at least a bit
                Let's see how it unfolds for the CDC part

                    so basically it's spokesman of said agencies word versus MSM word

                    Well color me puzzled
                    Because none are neutral nor fully trustable according their past history
                    So basically one side is lying
                    I guess that each side will believe what it wants according to its political preference

                      unsure of your meaning? you say "bad sh*t usually starts from use of words" .....like you love to ban words, before that you say "ban words" like banning words is BAD? I am a bit confused by your seemingly supporting banning words and not banning words? I think this forum BANS certain offensive words. How does that fit with your views?

                        I smelled fake news as soon as I read this post.

                        Though it would never suprise me. Governments do sneaky shit sometimes

                          I'd agree. Neither the CDC nor the WaPo have a very good record with the truth.

                            The assertion that HHS has 'banned words' is a complete mischaracterization of discussions regarding the budget formulation process," the HHS statement said. "HHS will continue to use the best scientific evidence available to improve the health of all Americans. HHS also strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions.”

                              Wait...fake news? God, the lefties look like retards again. Error after error after error and all the haters lap it up like Gospel. I have to say the original story seemed non -sensical. Not nearly as well thought out as banning the term “Islamic terrorism”. Hahahahaha!!
