Fish Wrapper and AP Twist Facts To "Debunk" Giuliani's Cancer Statistics

On page A2 in the Saturday edition of the Fish Wrapper, they reprint an AP article that attempts to rebut cancer survivability statistics quoted by Rudy Giuliani in campaign ads.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Rudy Giuliani is defending the survival rates he quotes when talking about his prostate cancer, amid criticism he understates the figures and makes unfair comparisons.

In a radio ad running this week in New Hampshire, Giuliani says: "My chance of surviving prostate cancer, and thank God I was cured of it, in the United States: 82 percent. My chances of surviving prostate cancer in England: only 44 percent under socialized medicine."
