You know those hormonal supplement ads for babyboomer men that show up all the time on the nightly newscasts? It is the target demographic after all. The right thing to do when negative research is published about side-effects is to report it thoroughly. CBS did the right thing, assigning in-house physician Jon LaPook to cover the risks to heart health from taking testosterone supplements like AndroGel. NBC and ABC get a black eye for keeping quiet, especially ABC's Neal Karlinsky, who gave us the buff babyboomer with the six-pack ads twice previously, both last June and 14 months ago.
And CBS' Mark Strassmann followed up on the Miami Dolphins lockerroom story that he and ABC's Matt Gutman covered Monday. The NFL prohibits harassment, intimidation and discrimination by its players, hence the $235K-per-game suspension of lineman Richie Incognito. Hazing of rookies, forcing them to throw $15K parties for senior players? That's kosher.
