Media--CCSVI

Post by thornyrose76 » Sun Dec 13, 2009 6:43 pm

I was curious, in that has CCSVI and Zamboni's findings been mentioned, even in great detail, by the mainstream media?? (Besides W5) Have any of the big networks in the US and UK covered it? Any media, anywhere, besides Canada?

I was told all the major US networks will be airing stories this week. And, yes Cheer said she did an interview with CBS which will air this week.

Hi Rhonda,

I know about CBS evening news and am waiting to hear when it will air. Do you know more about ABC (they interviewed Dr. Dake, right?) and NBC?

All He** will break loose in the US after things air. This should be a very interesting week.

Thanks,
Michelle

Dr. Dake told me he has not done any interviews, but he thinks once the reports air there will be doctors everywhere testing and treating CCSVI! How amazing would that be??!!

Rhonda,

I agree that there will be doctors diagnosing and treating this.

I'd think CCSVI is an interventional radiologist's candy. It's new, exciting, and will have a huge impact on hundred of thousands of people in the US, not to mention world-wide.

Someone mentioned that Dr. Dake spoke with ABC. Maybe I saw it on Facebook.

Media in UK

Post by Badger » Tue Dec 15, 2009 5:33 am

:twisted: There has been very little media coverage in the UK, the MS Societies have been very dismissive and other than a small article on the internet from the BBC there has been very little:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8374980.stm

there was also an article in a newspaper in Glasgow:

http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/news/edit ... r-1.987654

Other than this the coverage has been poor. I have contacted most newspapers and TV stations but they are not interested. I have even contacted the Scottish health secretary, on 3 occassions, yet still no reply.

It is more than likely that they will all show an interest once it has been shown on American TV. TYPICAL.

Anyway thank you Dr. Zamboni. :D
