In my previous post, I plugged an upcoming National Public Radio segment on CCSVI that I had been interviewed for a few weeks ago. It was supposed to air this morning, on NPR's "Morning Edition" and I was surprised/disappointed when it failed to hit the airwaves.
I contacted the reporter who interviewed me, and was told that because there are several crucial reports on CCSVI due to be released in some of the major medical journals in the near future, and because NPR wanted to interview Dr. Zamboni and Dr. Zivadinov (who is conducting intensive research on CCSVI at the University of Buffalo) for the piece, that it was being held back until some time in the relatively near future, probably after the holidays.
Sorry for the confusion, I was as surprised as anybody. I will of course keep everyone informed once I get word of when the piece will actually air.
And so, the national US media silence on CCSVI lives on, at least for another couple of months. Actually, print pieces have been run in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, but who's counting…
