Dear CNN... Fix[ed] your stuff!

May 19 2013 Published by under Publishing, Uncategorized


A recent opinion piece at CNN about Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy (Article here) had a few errors and had some issues with it.  But what was most confusing was wording that mislead the reader to believe that most of the non-familial breast cancer patients did not have BRCA1/2 genes, instead of stating that they did not have mutations in those genes.  I was actually kind of surprised when both the author and the article responded to me quite quickly.

Bravo CNN for fixing the inaccuracies but boo to the clinician who wrote the paper with the errors in it.
