Politico‘s famed Capitol Hill Bureau Chief John Bresnahan is letting the world down.
Showing off how overly sophisticated he is for this daytime talk show crap, on Wednesday the guy who once questioned the need for media reporting, declared that until recently he had no idea who Dr. Mehmet Oz was.
Oz is interviewing GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump on his program Thursday. The topic is Trump’s health records. Oz was supposed to divulge Trump’s health records — but no, that is not happening because the whole thing was overhyped.
Politico should sentence Bresnahan to a month of watching daytime talk.
Until he knows who Rachel Ray is, the hosts of “The Chew” and Candace Cameron-Bure, his editors should bench him.
Matthew Miller, an ex-DOJ flak, makes a good point about why Bresnhan’s highbrow shit is ridiculous. He’s right. Congress grilled Oz in 2014. He appeared before a Senate subcommittee protection panel for claims he made about dietary supplements on his show. Oz got scolded for promoting green coffee extract and Garcinia cambogia.
Yahoo! News‘ Olivier Knox also makes a valid point, albeit one slightly less serious than Miller’s.
