Burzynski Infomercial on Colorado PBS 12

Last night Burzyński I was aired of CPT12, one of Colorado’s PBS channels. It was used as a fundraising tool for the channel. In my opinion a shameless attempt to use a controversial topic to raise money.

Eric Merola and Burzyński spokesman Azad Rastegar were the only guests in the studio, despite mine and others asking for the station to provide some balance and have an independent oncologist on the show.

It’s 6.30 in the morning and I’m getting a little tired. I thought before I headed off I’d post some of the videos I recorded of the ad break sections of the broadcast. I didn’t get all of them and some of the quality is pretty poor. All my fault, but it’s the best I could do when I realised the software that was supposed to be recording the feed decided not to!

More Burzyński posts can found here.

Like I said, sorry about the quality of the videos. I should clarify that I’m only apologising for the recording and not the program. That’s for CPT12 to do.

    Have you read their responses to the comments posted on their website, regarding the airing of that trash? It is obviously apparent they fully intend to show whatever they feel like, as long as it’s controversial and they have no intention to hold themselves responsible or to any standards. The lack of moderating, attention and addressing questions asked of them on their Facebook page was almost maddening. There’s mention of letters being sent to cancer clinics and some major supporters, so maybe we’ll be hearing more about that in the near future, would be interesting.

    […] it definitely hurts. However, I do want to use this incident to show that Merola, contrary to the image of himself that he cultivates for the press and world of documentary films, is no neutral “investigative reporter.” […]
