I read that entire article and I still don't have a clue what point the author was trying to make.

Following some of the links in the original article it appears some CDC researchers were contacted by outside groups and/or were themselves personally affiliated with outside groups that would have liked to have seen different results than originally published.

It appears one of the CDC researchers personally affiliated with one of the outside groups sliced and diced the data until it said what he wanted. His study was ultimately retracted after peer review found many flaws and inconsistencies in his methods.

Some of the linked articles stated the retracted study would have lead toward some kind of government action had it stood.
