Fox News host gets embarrassed on live TV by a doctor over her Ebola comments

After the first case of the Ebola virus in the United States was reported last week, the American media was quick to jump on the news and craft a narrative that best fit their agenda. For one Fox News host, her words were quickly debunked by a doctor who has worked extensively in the field.

The Ebola panic in the states has grown to a fever pitch. With thousands dying from the virus in West Africa, the first reported case was announced last month in Texas. Thomas Eric Duncan traveled to the United States from Liberia just two weeks ago, and has been under special care ever since. During Monday's episode of "Fox and Friends," co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck welcomed the Director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Anthony Fauci, to the show. Hasselbeck began questioning the doctor on why the United States hadn't closed the borders, in addition to stopping incoming flights from areas that could have been prone to a possible outbreak. Hasselbeck even went as far as to mildly scold the doctor for not recommending to close the United States' borders.

"Why not just shut down the flights and secure the borders?" Hasselbeck asked. "Why not, just as a precaution until we get things under control, seal off the border temporarily?” she questioned. Fauci was sympathetic to Hasselbeck's concerns, but simply stated that her solutions “didn't make any sense." Fauci noted that by cutting off aid to countries in need only furthers the risk of a wider outbreak, not just in the isolated region, but in other countries.

"If we completely isolate them, don’t let anything in, don’t let anything out, we know from experience with public health, that marginalizes them," the doctor noted. Fauci also made note that if that were the case, it could cause civil unrest, as well as governments to fall, ultimately spreading the virus to other countries, which would "only compound the problem.”

I'm glad someone is taking a stand against the hysteria. I doubt it will make a difference though - some Americans seem to rely on the news media to tell them what to be scared of.

This is very similar to the way climate change stories are reported - no-one wants to listen to educated people with experience studying the science behind this issue. Apparently they'd rather listen to scare mongers and partisan agitators.

Or a lawyer with no medical experience.

How much you want to bet someone is going to come in here and argue that a news commentator is more knowledgeable than a doctor with actual medical experience?

Kinda like a lawyer with no political experience running the country.

I don't see anything in the paragraph that you posted that shows that the doctor embarrassed the host. Maybe there's more to the story. Probably not, just more hyperbole.

I'm sure that's a question a lot of people want an answer to. Seems the doctor explained why that's not a good idea, and would do more harm than good. I'm still wondering what's the big deal here?

or maybe it's just the headline of the article that the OP posted

That's why it's a good idea to read the entire article before posting it. I've gotten burned that way before.

He served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000. In 2004, Obama received national attention during his campaign to represent Illinois in the United States Senate with his victory in the March Democratic Party primary, his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July, and his election to the Senate in November.
