Well, duh: CNN decides story about women’s hormones affecting voting was a bad idea

  • cause CNN had a story online discussing how women’s hormones affected the way they voted. The lede was a total, uh, winner. "While the campaigns eagerly pursue female voters, there’s something that may raise the chances for both presidential candidates that’s totally out of their control: women’s ovulation cycles." Ouch.
  • retraction Hours after the story provoked controversy, CNN took it down, replacing it with this statement: "A post previously published in this space regarding a study about how hormones may influence voting choices has been removed. After further review it was determined that some elements of the story did not meet the editorial standards of CNN. We thank you for your comments and feedback." The original story is still online other places.
