    I am deeply disturbed that the CDC has been issued this list of words and phrases it is forbidden from using. How can researchers adequately and accurately describe their work and findings if their vocabulary is limited? And what is the motivation behind selecting these specific words? At best, this flies in the face of first-amendment rights to free speech. At worst, it sounds like the beginning stages of implementing Orwellian Newspeak regulations.
