Seth MacFarlane Calls Out Oprah Over Coronavirus 'Pseudoscience' Pushers Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz - 2020-04-22
Coronavirus quarantine seems to have Seth MacFarlane more willing than ever to speak out against powerful figures in the media.
"Oprah has done some wonderfully altruistic things with her career, but the use of her platform to amplify the voices of dubious characters rather than legitimate scientists has been a disservice," MacFarlane tweeted recently. "I hope she will lend her own powerful voice to correct it." He included a link to a Los Angeles Times article that broke down how Dr. Phil McGraw and Dr. Mehmet Oz—both of whom rose to fame via Winfrey's show—have been spreading medical misinformation during the crisis.
