CNN Updates Article After Original Portrayal of Data Drew Criticism

Summary from the AllSides News Team

CNN updated an article detailing the results of a recent Gallup poll, following criticism from pundits and readers who said the network's initial coverage of the poll used the data misleadingly. CNN's first headline read "68% of Americans say a vaccine is needed before returning to normal life, new survey finds"; the story has since been updated, and is included below. Gallup described its poll results by concluding that "68% say it is very important to have vaccine before returning to normal." Only right-rated outlets pointed out the apparent misrepresentation, with some reporting that CNN also deleted a tweet that included its initial description of the data. No left- or center-rated outlets reported on the apparent distortion.
