Media Making Claims of Cholera in Puerto Rico

Oct 2, 2017

In its ongoing efforts to use the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands as a means of criticism Donald Trump a reporter for the New York Times claimed there was a cholera epidemic in Puerto Rico. Paul Krugman, of course blamed the outbreak on the President. His tweet on the subject was retweeted thousands of times and received thousands of likes.

Another liberal journalist followed with a similar tweet that garnered lot of attention also. However, there is a major problem; the Center for Disease Control, (CDC) says that not only is there not a cholera outbreak, but they have not received word of even a single case.
