During its never ending wall to wall Hillary defense babble, the Clinton News Network featured a panelist who claimed that Clinton’s illness isn’t a big deal because every week in America TEN MILLION people come down with pneumonia.
Hilary Rosen, a rampant Clinton apologist, assured CNN viewers that Hillary is just one of millions to be struck with the illness this week
“Are you worried at all that her being away for a day, two days, three days, we don’t know totally yet, could hurt her politically?” asked host Brooke Baldwin.
“Look, 10 million Americans a week catch pneumonia, Rosen said. “I don’t think people don’t begrudge her a couple day’s rest.”
“I think we have the candidates we have–you know, they are as healthy as they’re going to be, and I don’t have any doubt that either one of them will be healthy enough to be president,” Rosen added.
Rosen then suggested that the candidates releasing health records wasn’t really important.
“I’m going to disagree with the original premise, which is that the issues of this campaign are about health records and transparency and tax returns,” she said. “Tax returns I think matter because it says, ‘Will Donald Trump scam middle-class voters the way we think he’s probably scammed the IRS or not?’”
If Rosen’s medical expert assertions were to be taken as fact without question, then it would mean that 520 million Americans per year would be diagnosed with pneumonia.
Given that there are no more than 350 million people in America, that means that EVERYONE gets diagnosed with pneumonia every year, according to Rosen.
In reality, according to most medical estimates, there are around three million cases of pneumonia a year.
Approximately 60,000 people die as a result of the condition., with around a third of the cases occurring in people over the age of 65. Current estimates suggest that approximately 4 out of every 100 American children develop pneumonia each year.
Will CNN issue a retraction? Unlikely.
More likely that they will just edit the comments out of transcripts, much like CBS News edited out Bill Clinton’s admission that Hillary has “frequently” suffered fainting episodes.
In an interview this week, Clinton said “Frequently — well, not frequently, rarely, on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her when she got severely dehydrated, and she’s worked like a demon…”
CBS edited out the words “Frequently — well, not frequently”, from both video footage and written transcripts of the interview, claiming they need to ‘save time’.
Your corporate media, giving you the facts as they make them up.
