Dr. Oz has pretended to respond to the vast amounts of (entirely legitimate) criticism from his fellow doctors (the ones who actually have ethics) and, predictably, he is ignoring the substance of those criticisms and instead casting himself as the brave truthteller, the martyr and the courageous warrior against censorship.
“I know I’ve irritated some potential allies in our quest to make America healthy,” he says, as if his critics are opposed to health, when in fact they are trying to protect people’s health against his quack faux medicine. “No matter our disagreements, freedom of speech is the most fundamental right we have as Americans. And these 10 doctors are trying to silence that right.”
The martyrdom conclusion: “So I vow to you right here and right now: we will not be silenced, we will not give in.”
You’re not a martyr, you’re a fraud. You’re a hustler. You’re a paid liar. And you’re hurting the health of America by pushing bullshit “cures” that don’t cure anything but are very likely to lead people not to follow actual medical treatment recommendations.
