How the Fox News Channel’s Shakes Up Health Care Coverage
Fox News anchor Dr. Drew Pinsky said Wednesday that “shakes” in coverage of his network’s health care coverage have resulted in the network “going into the White House as the number one health news source for the country.”
“It’s going into the Oval Office as the most trusted source for Americans,” Pinsky told “Special Report” co-anchor Lara Logan.
Pinsky added that he expects the new administration to “make major changes” in health care and “totally shake up the way the news is covered.”
Pinsky, who previously worked as a White House correspondent and reporter for ABC News, told Logan that he has “never seen anything like this in my time as a reporter.”
In a joint statement with the White Street Journal, the White Houses press office and the Health and Human Services department said, “We’re excited about the news that Dr. Pinks is on the job at the Whitehouse and looking forward to working with him to improve our coverage of health and human services.”
“We look forward to the work that he will do to make our news coverage of President Trump’s agenda even better,” the WhiteHouse press office added.
“We are confident Dr.
Pinks will help our coverage improve.”
