Politifact: Manipulates CDC data with ridiculous criteria to try to show Tucker Carlson Pants-On-Fire wrong

Categories: Fact-Checkers


Here is the data from 0-14 years old:

CDC data:

0-14 yrs old  – Drowning and submersion while in bath-tub (W65)

0-14 yrs old  – Accidental discharge of firearms (W32-W34)


And if you include data from all children 14 and under who drown from accidental drowning and submersion while in a bath-tub, swimming-pool, natural water, and all other causes of accidental non-transport drowning and submersion, the disparity in numbers skyrocket.
