Blow Hard: Burzynski Gets Favorable Media Coverage
Houston's KHOU was first with a segment on Great Day Houston back in May. FOX Austin referred to him as a "pioneer" in "alternative medicine" and headlined its online story "Curing Cancer Without Chemotherapy." KHOU's online copy trumpeted "Cutting Edge Cancer Treatment."
In fact, they spent so much time touting his cancer-bustin' that they didn't even have a chance to address the strides he's made battling that other Big C -- crow's feet. (Hey, it's only natural that, after conquering one of the nastiest terminal diseases in history, you go after mankind's next-biggest medical threat).
FOX's reporter at least stated that she tried to get oncologists to comment on Burzynski's miracle cure, but didn't get very far. The Press had a tough time getting oncologists to talk on record as well, which we didn't quite understand. But maybe it's just because they're all embarrassed for not having cured cancer first. Hell, they probably don't even know the first thing about wrinkles, either.
Now just sit there and swallow.
