After George W. Bush's recent controvertial stent placement, news organizations were hot to jump on the media buzz created by a former President's health issues. Perhaps the funniest moment of all came from Fox News' proported medical "A-team" member, Marc Siegel, MD.
Dr. Siegel is an internist by trade, and when internists are handed a cardiac stent to open on TV, the ensuing moments were something to behold:
The special moments begin a 2 minutes into the video where Dr. Siegel attempts to open the stent packaging (even resorting to using his teeth 22 seconds later). After failing, he hands the package back to the anchorwoman who hands the challenging packaging to her TV crew to open.
Once the package contents are returned to Dr. Siegel, he remains baffled and displays the stents flush port to the TV audience as the stent.
Sorry, but it rarely gets better than this on TV...
