Dr. Mehmet Oz, the host of The Dr. Oz Show who has come under fire by 10 prominent doctors for “promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain,” told his audience on Tuesday that he “will not be silenced.” “This month, we celebrate my 1000th show,” Oz said. “I know I’ve irritated some potential allies in our quest to make America healthy. No matter our disagreements, freedom of speech is the most fundamental right we have as Americans. And these 10 doctors are trying to silence that right…So I vow to you right here and right now: we will not be silenced, we will not give in.” The 10 doctors have called for Oz to resign from his faculty position at Columbia University.
