Default CDC gets list of forbidden words

Quote:
The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in any official documents being prepared for next year’s budget.
Quote:
Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”
Quote:
In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or *“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.

WaPo won't let me read their rag. Probably just as well. Several other well known lefty MSM report the same WaPo story from unnamed reportedly sources confirmed by other unnamed reportedly other sources.

Several other words and phrases are notably missing. I guess workplace violence and Mislim/jihad had already been used up.

Fox apparently based their story on an AP story who got it from WaPo.

I love this quote:

In the case of “science-based” and “evidence-based,” the analyst said a substitute phrase was: “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes."

Science is now based on community standards and wishes?

Sounds like climate control.

Well, this feels doubleplus ungood.

This is literally the official, government-backed equivalence of "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge"

What the f-ck is happening to this country?

Millions of snowflake flurries from the left side of the country overpowering the landscape, would be my guess.

Considering that it's the Trump administration doing this, no.

WaPo wants money to read their editorialized stories.
