CNN Scolds Liberals for Spreading "Conspiracy Theory" That "Rape Will be a Pre-Existing Condition" if Obamacare Is Repealed, Without Noting That CNN Was a Primary #FakeNews Propagandist for the Lie

Yes, of course.

Chris Cilliza is now scolding liberals for pumping out conspiracy theories themselves dreamed up by hardened partisans, but he overlooks that CNN was a major megaphone for this #FakeNews:

"[The Affordable Care Act] ensured that tests for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases, plus domestic and interpersonal violence screening and counseling, would be completely covered by insurance companies," wrote CNN's Jen Christensen.

"That may not be the case in the future. Under the current bill, states could seek waivers that would let insurers sell plans that don't include all the essential health benefits mandated by the ACA," she added.

In case you're thinking, "But that doesn't mean the article reported that 'Rape and Domestic Violence Could be Pre-Existing Conditions,'" you should also know that the much-linked-and-tweeted story was headlined Rape and domestic violence could be pre-existing conditions.

By the way, Google still returns zero hits for any news story on the Washington Post reporting that the "hate crime" it reported on endlessly turned out to be a complete false-flag hoax.

Google also reports no stories on this hate-crime-revealed-as-yet-another-hoax on the New York Times or, of course, CNN's website, either -- at least, searching for the admitted hoaxer's name, George Stang or George Nathaniel Stang, turns up no references on either #FakeNews site.
