    I used to listen to this guy on Loveline as a kid and really looked up to him. What a tool. :coffee:

    Sounds like he took a few tips from Howard about passing off paid ads as show content.

    Dr. J is more of a real doctor than this jerkoff.

    This is what happens when the unknowns get a little bit of fame and recognition. They lose themselves.
    Look at Drs. Phil and Oz.

    Next time you visit your doctor, sneak a look around. There will be shelves full of "free" medicines salespeople (almost always hot women if the doc is a guy) push him to prescribe. Your doctor won't disclose why he's telling you to take that $200/mo drug instead of the $35/mo one. He's not getting $275K, but he's getting other perks. Most of them do it, it's a shady business, just like practically every fucking other one in America today. No ethics.

    Dr Drew cured Rodney King of his substance abuse and sent him home a changed man.

    This was inevitable. He's been a sleazebag who exploits people for $$$ for years.

    The celebrity "medical profession" media whores have joined politicans, lawyers and televangelists in that and it's really sad because most people are brainwashed from birth into reflexively trusting and never questioning anyone with a "Dr." before their name.

    I also think he's a closet case and won't be surprised when that comes out in a few years.

    I used to listen to that before XM came around. Remember how much he would push Wellbutron to the callers. Hope he gets his license revoked.
