CNN wasn’t the only media outlet to put paid to Dr Drew Pinsky, although they were the most drastic.
KABC radio took down a link with his thoughts about Hillary Clinton’s health.
Here’s a look at both.
On August 17, Gateway Pundit reported:
KABC-AM has taken down the web page that featured Dr. Drew Pinsky speaking frankly about his concerns regarding the health and treatment of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton that was titled, “Dr. Drew Speaks Out on Hillary’s Health.”

This video features a brief excerpt from the interview with Dr Drew, ‘America’s most trusted physician’:
Fortunately, the full audio is still available. Anyone wishing to hear the interview can do so by clicking here.
Infowars has highlights of the KABC interview, excerpts of which follow (emphases mine):
Appearing on KABC’s McIntyre in the Morning, the hosts of the show were expecting Dr. Drew, known as “America’s most trusted physician,” to debunk claims that Hillary is having significant health problems, but Pinsky instead dropped several bombshells.
Pinsky said he and his colleague Dr. Robert Huizenga had already analyzed what medical records on Hillary had been released and were “gravely concerned….not just about her health but her health care.”
Pinsky noted that after her fall, Hillary suffered from a “transverse sinus thrombosis,” an “exceedingly rare clot” that “virtually guarantees somebody has something wrong with their coagulation system.”
“What’s wrong with her coagulation system, has that been evaluated?” asked Dr. Drew, adding, that Hillary was being given “weird” medication that could be exacerbating her health problems …
Pinsky said the situation was “bizarre,” adding that Hillary’s medical condition was “dangerous” and “concerning”.
Dr. Drew also highlighted when Hillary had to wear prism glasses after her fall [in 2012], declaring, “that is brain damage, and so that’s affecting her balance….tell us a little more about that – that’s profound.”
Unfortunately for Dr Drew, CNN did not like what he said on KABC and cancelled his show on their HLN (Headline News) network.
His last programme will air on September 22, 2016.
Dateline Hollywood sums up CNN’s likely reasoning on Pinsky’s pronouncements:
It played nicely into Donald Trump’s position that Clinton is not healthy enough to serve as POTUS.
People don’t call CNN the Clinton News Network for nothing.
On a forum discussion of the topic, the first comment nails it:
He broke the 1st commandment of the liberal media: Thou shalt not speak ill of Hillary.
CaribFlame agrees, explaining:
Clinton has thus far refused to release her full medical records to the public but has been rumored to be suffering from a plethora of medical ailments, including dementia, post-concussion syndrome, Parkinson’s Disease, brain injury, complex partial seizures, along with a number of other ailments.
Furthermore, bolstering these claims is a Clinton email, recently released by WikiLeaks, which revealed Clinton asking a State Department staffer to research new drugs for Parkinson’s disease.
Regarding Pinsky’s departure from HLN, CNN Executive Vice President Ken Jautz said: “Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows, and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming.” Jautz added, “Dr. Drew and I have mutually agreed to air the final episode of his show on September 22.”
Contrary to the public statement by CNN, the timing of CNN’s cancellation of Dr. Drew’s show leaves the distinct impression that his assessment of Clinton’s health was at least partially responsible for the abrupt sacking of his show.
Fortunately, Pinsky has other work to fall back on. He is:
Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, former Medical Director for the Department of Chemical Dependency Services at Las Encinas Hospital in Pasadena, California, staff member at Huntington Memorial Hospital, and a private practitioner.
A number of Hillary supporters have read about her health problems, concluding ‘So what?’
The problem is that Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John Fitzgerald Kennedy had problems with pain, not cognitive difficulties or seizures. Their brains functioned normally.
Hillary Clinton has to be carefully managed in order to appear in public. Even then, she has petits mals in front of others:
As I said in yesterday’s post, which features two of Clinton’s health-related emails, she has conditions that could rightly restrict an average person’s employment, never mind that of a president and leader of the free world.
Clinton supporters should be aware of their candidate’s serious health issues — and acknowledge them openly. Furthermore, her campaign team should urge her to make her health records public before November 8 to enable voters to make an informed decision.
