Weird: claim XMRV causes "chronic fatigue"

In the Yahoo news feed this morning I saw the headline "Getting to the Bottom of Chronic Fatigue" for a Newsmax article. Ordinarily I wouldn't look at a Newsmax article. From their headlines alone I long ago decided that Newsmax is not a reputable news source. But today I clicked and found an article purportedly written by Dr. Jacob Teitlebaum, dated 12 June 2015, in which he claims that XMRV causes chronic fatigue syndrome.

All I can guess is that some idiot at Newsmax decided to recycle an old article for its clickbait potential. And I took the bait!

That sucks! I wouldn't be happy if I was him...

Where's the integrity Newsmaxx? I guess there isn't any!
