Colorado Public Television (Channel 12) will be airing "Burzynski The Movie" about the infamous cancer clinic in Houston on March 7 and 9, with two in-studio guests who are proponents of Stanislaw Burzynski (filmmaker and clinic PR guy). Nonetheless, CPT insists the station will be neutral about the film. Sure.
CPT is getting critical posts on their website and Facebook site about airing this promotional film for Burzynski's unvalidated, potentially dangerous, and very expensive cancer "treatment."
Skeptical blogs are picking up the issue.
CPT's Burzynski pages:
“Colorado PBS has become a wretched hive of scum and quackery” by Orac
“Colorado PBS has become a wretched hive of scum and quackery (CPT responds to criticism)” by Orac
Oncologist David Gorski has published an in-depth critical analysis of Burzynski's operations and the film here: http://tinyurl.com/d9...
If you have time, please consider posting a comment on CPT's website. I also suggest writing the PBS Ombudsman Michael Getler regarding CPT airing an infomercial for Burzynski.
