You would think that when a confirmed case of ebola is found to be in the U.S., it is news that you would want to get out as fast as possible.
But, the CDC tried to put an embargo on the news and hold off telling the public about it, until they wanted to.
It didn't work and a number of news organizations broke the embargo (good for them) and reported the news that the U.S. citizens needed to know, ebola is in fact in the United States.
The fact that news organizations realized that getting this very important news out to the public as quickly as possible, did not seem to sit well with NBC's Luke Russert:
Sorry Luke, you can embargo stories like when U2 is going to start their next tour, but you can't embargo ebola.
