    They can only get so much mileage out of lather, rinse, repeat, from the Nadler clowncar, so I am not surprised they've gone this far into the abyss with repulsive Trump blame.

    I thought I'd post this "news story" for anyone out there who still thinks CNN has any iota of doubt regarding the overwhelming bias at CNN. Blaming premature births on Trump. Can the liberal MSM sink any lower in terms of credibility?
    Oh I see. So that’s why we need to some real news stories like Obama’s secret Kenyan birth certificate.

    CNN didn't draw the conclusions. They shared the results of a study published in a peer-reviewed journal. The title of the study:


    Association of Preterm Births Among US Latina Women With the 2016 Presidential Election

    (more details at link)


    But go ahead and hold CNN responsible for the contents and conclusions of the study they didn't have anything to do with.

    This sounds like a fun #CNNReports hashtag game.

    "Children's tantrums are lasting 18% longer than when Obama was President."
    "Bunnies are hopping 27% less than average ... because of Trump."
    "Snickers taste 33% less satisfying in Trump America, say anti-Trumpers."

    That study, if you read it, identifies 4 means for “limitations” to the study. 2 of them applying to correlation over causation.

    Did CNN spend much time talking about that part? (Answer is no.)

    They did mention limitations. You're nitpicking.

    The study had some limitations, including that the researchers were unable to separate the data on Latina women to determine differences among those who were foreign-born versus those who were born in the United States, and only an association was found between preterm births and the presidential election -- not a causal relationship.
    CNN is not responsible for the study. They merely reported on it and they reported in a fairly comprehensive manner. They didn't appreciably spin the content or conclusions.

    Ahhh facts. The Kryptonite of the base. No wonder it's giving them so much trouble.
    You have to be crazy to take Trump's racist tweets seriously. Sadly, a few Americans are. ... RIP 8/03 victims

    That is not an old saying. Just saying.
