The most dangerous place in the country at the present moment isn't a nursing home but rather the space between 'Dr. Phil' and any running television camera.

It's easy to dismiss Phil McGraw as a manipulative hack but realize that his insatiable appetite for ratings has made him the wealthiest daytime television personality behind a trail of severely broken people. He's influential and people, mainly elderly people, perceive him as having expertise. He's not a physician but he gets endless mileage from the confusion engendered by employing his clinical psychology PhD.

If Trump is a poor person's idea of a rich person, Dr. Phil is a mentally unstable person's idea of a well person. The blame for both misconceptions can be laid at television's feet, and not only Fox News.
