Warning: Prepare to be Manipulated
Just to show how much they care about you and your health, the Fox News Health Blog is headlining these stories:
This poor little girl, Emily Joost suffers from Aicardi syndrome. “Aicardi syndrome is an uncommon malformation syndrome characterized by absence of a key structure in the brain called the corpus callosum, the presence of retinal abnormalities, and seizures in the form of infantile spasms. It is inherited as an X-linked dominant trait and is lethal in males”.
Only 500 people in the entire world has this condition.
Fox News, in their inimitable style, have latched onto this highly emotional story in their quest for eyeballs.
If you, like me, were touched by this story, donations to the Aicardi Syndrome Foundation are being accepted here. I am sure that Fox News made a big donation.
Now we move from sorrow to sex.
Written by Fox Sex-pert, Dr. Yvonne Fulbright, Fox News as always, tackles the most serious subjects.
And Here’s the Top 10 Mistakes Women make in the Sack

Staying with the SEX stories…
Fox reports that, “Hugh Hefner has said that he would like to see Miley Cyrus pose naked for Playboy—when she turns 18”.
Is this surprising?
Hugh Hefner, at 82 years old, can still freak people out.
One of those freakees was Fox columnist, Dr. Keith Ablow. Dr. Ablow had this to say:
“I believe Hefner’s offer, albeit cloaked in the disclaimer that Miley has to be legal to strip for him, may herald a challenge to the current age of sexual consent—which is between 16 and 18 in almost all states, lower only in South Carolina (and only when the sexual partners are both young)”.
“What Hefner chose to do was to express being sexually attracted to an underage girl. He knows that he is perceived as freeing American men to express their sexuality. In this case, he is presumably leading the way in suggesting that men ought to feel free to direct their sexual fantasies toward 15-year-olds—bemoaning, perhaps, the fact that they will have to impatiently wait to get them out of their clothes”.
It seems that along with medicine, Dr. Ablow has also been trained in the doctoring of SPIN.
Fox doesn’t mind cashing in on the celebrity of Miley Cyrus. They also don’t mind taking a story that MOST people found disturbing and a little bit creepy, and then spoon feeding us back our own opinions.
