Ted Cruz Sends A Missile To Twitter, Demands They Restrict CNN For Making The Same Claims Trump Jr. Did

Senator Ted Cruz called out Twitter and demanded that they penalize CNN over making the same claims trump Jr. did.

On July 3rd CNN posted an article that highlighted a study reporting the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine boosting the survival rate of coronavirus patients.

In the original report CNN stated:

A team at Henry Ford Health System in Southeast Michigan said Thursday its study of 2,541 hospitalized patients found that those given hydroxychloroquine were much less likely to die.
Dr. Marcus Zervos, division head of infectious disease for Henry Ford Health System, said 26% of those not given hydroxychloroquine died, compared to 13% of those who got the drug. The team looked back at everyone treated in the hospital system since the first patient in March.
“Overall crude mortality rates were 18.1% in the entire cohort, 13.5% in the hydroxychloroquine alone group, 20.1% among those receiving hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin, 22.4% among the azithromycin alone group, and 26.4% for neither drug,” the team wrote in a report published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.
“Our results do differ from some other studies,” Zervos told a news conference. “What we think was important in ours … is that patients were treated early. For hydroxychloroquine to have a benefit, it needs to begin before the patients begin to suffer some of the severe immune reactions that patients can have with Covid,” he added.
Donald Trump Jr. was suspended on Twitter when he posted a video of medical professionals touting the benefits of using hydroxychloroquine.

Senator Cruz then asked Twitter to also restrict CNN.

According to Web Archives, CNN has altered the original pro hydroxychloroquine articles nine times, including changing the title. When the report was published the articles title was “Study finds hydroxychloroquine helped coronavirus patients survive better” to the current version”

By the end of the day, liberals must have complained because the title was changed to “Study finds hydroxychloroquine may have boosted survival, but other researchers have doubts.”

What Twitter and CNN are engaging in is digital book burning.
