#AceNewsReport – Aug.29: Continuing the report on Hilary Clintons health report by CNN who has since canceled Dr. Drew Pinsky’s long-running primetime program on HLN Thursday, just a week after the board certified physician and media personality expressed he was “gravely concerned” about Hillary Clinton’s health Western Journalism reports …..
CNN executive vice president Ken Jautz broke the news Thursday afternoon, abruptly announcing that Dr. Drew On Call would end its five-year run next month.
“Dr. Drew and I have mutually agreed to air the final episode of his show on September 22,” Jautz said in a statement. “Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming.”
Jautz continued: “Their audience-driven shows, in particular, were innovative and memorable TV. And Dr. Drew has been an authoritative voice on addiction and on many other topical issues facing America today.”
“It has been a privilege working at HLN,” Pinsky said in a separate statement Thursday. “My executive producer Burt Dubrow and our outstanding staff and contributors were consistently exceptional. I am very excited to stay within the CNN Worldwide family as a contributor.”
HLN, which is operated by CNN, is reportedly rebooting its entire primetime lineup. However, the sudden announcement is conspicuous for some, considering Pinsky grabbed headlines a week ago for expressing concerns over Clinton’s ability to serve as president.
Pinsky appeared on KABC’s McIntyre in the Morning show on Tuesday Aug. 16, where he was asked to debunk theories about Clinton’s health.
Instead, Dr. Drew broke rank with his mainstream media colleagues — who have been anxiously attempting to sweep such questions under the rug — when he gave an assessment of the presidential nominee that seemed to validate concerns raised by GOP nominee Donald Trump and others.
Pinsky explained that he and his colleague, Dr. Robert Huizenga, also shared concerns about Clinton’s overall health, but also shared opinions about the quality medical care she has been receiving.
“Both of us concluded that if we were providing the care she was receiving, we would be ashamed to show up in a doctors’ lounge,” Pinsky said. “We would be laughed out. She’s receiving sort of 1950s-level care by our evaluation.”
After reviewing the few Clinton medical records that have been made public, Pinsky added he feels Clinton suffers from hypothyroidism, and that she is receiving “bizarre” and outdated treatments.
The original KABC broadcast of the segment is now unavailable, however Pinsky’s comments can be heard on the video below.
CNN, which had been largely ignoring questions about Clinton’s health before Dr. Drew’s comments, spent Thursday morning instead discussing Trump’s health.
The company also ran a story on its website Thursday headlined: “Clinton’s health is fine, but what about Trump?”
Dr. Drew Pinsky will air his final HLN show on Sep. 22, at which point the network will seek to find a permanent replacement. In the interim, Dr. Drew On Call will be replaced by reruns of the popular crime documentary series Forensic Files, and reruns of CNN original programming.
