A Load of Crap on the Today Show



NBC's Today Show had a segment on Memphis' teen pregnancy problem this morning. It was the usual blather and sensationalism, highlighted by one of the most ignorant statements ever made on network television. Dr. Janet Taylor said, without contradiction, that there are NO ob/gyn physicians in Shelby County.

That's right, on a national news show, an "expert" was allowed to say that a major American urban area of nearly a million people had NO ob/gyn doctors. That's New York provincialism of a high order. And an embarrassment to NBC.

Here's the link to the segment. The interview with Taylor starts at around the 2:50 mark.
