Uh Duh, what did you expect? Are you a fan of the show? Ornish when on
because because any PR is better than no PR.
Mayer is not Oprah Winfrey. If Ornish wanted his hand held with sensitive,
serious conversation, he should call Winfrey, not Mayer.
It would be curious to know if Ornish's agent knew what Politically Incorrect

I doubt it. I know diabetics who had to get amputations from gangrene caused by
poor circulation. The circulation problems were due to not be compliant on their
diabetic diets. After all that they still cheat. I wouldn't count on the actors
have a more open mind after their arteries are clogged.

I think you are taking this all too serious. If Ornish was "set up", then he should
fire his agent. This show NEVER has serious conversions on anything. It always
degrades into one liners and stupidity.
It's like expecting a Jerry Springer show not to have a cat fight.
