Watch Steve Novella on Dr. Oz!
Steve’s breakdown and response is here on Science-based Medicine. See the full segment in three parts on the Dr. Oz site:
Dr. Oz’s show recently came under fire for editing a psychologist to look as though she agrees with “psychic medium” John Edward, so I for one was quite worried about how Steve would be portrayed. Steve is pretty happy with the editing on his segment, though. So, is it worth it for skeptics to trust the purveyors of quackery when we have the opportunity to get the message out there? How do you think Steve did?
Despite my reservations, I’m really proud of how well Steve came across. He was knowledgeable without being condescending, and very well-spoken. Go Steve!
Edited note: a few people have kindly sent me links to the clips on YouTube and elsewhere. Thanks, but since it’s available on the official website I’d much prefer for people to use that and send the show a message that skeptics are in the audience.
