Highlights from the 11.2.14 Sunday Shows

SundayShows-w-candyUS Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer:

…there really are positive signs in all three countries. In Liberia, thanks to the presence of the CDC and the US military, we see the rate of safe burial, which is a key part of the solution here, skyrocketing to close to 90% in the capital Monrovia. In Sierra Leone, the rate of safe burial within 24 hours is close to 100%. And CDC thinks that around half to 70% of the infections may well come from unsafe burial. So you could imagine what a difference that could start to make here you know just in a matter of days or weeks. And the rate of improvement in safe burial came over a four or five day period just because of the injection of command and control, frankly, by the United States and by the British and the Sierra Leonean context.

Jon Stewart Confirms NBC News Pursued Him as ‘Meet the Press’ Replacement

john_stewart(6)In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart confirmed that NBC News approached him to replace David Gregory as moderator of “Meet the Press.”

It was first reported earlier this month by New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman that NBC News’ president Deborah Turness pursued Stewart in the network’s efforts to boost the show’s ratings. Sherman cited three unnamed senior television sources, with one saying that NBC was “ready to back the Brink’s truck up.”

Stewart confirmed the offer during a recent interview with Andy Greene, who writes:

In an new interview with Rolling Stone, Stewart confirms that there were indeed discussions. “My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could,” he says. “I’m sure part of them was thinking, ‘Why don’t we just make it a variety show?’” Read more

Highlights from the 10.26.14 Sunday Shows

SundayShows-w-candyDr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with guest host Charlie Rose:

“Well, first of all, the most important thing, to protect the American people.  And as you said, you’ve got to base your decision and your policy on scientific evidence and scientific principles. Talking about health care workers coming back, they are at different levels of risk depending on their experience.”

“And you tailor the kinds of monitoring, passively, actively, direct, according to that kind of risk. The idea of a blanket quarantine for people who come back could possibly have a negative consequence of essentially disincentivizing people from wanting to go there. And the reason that’s important, Charlie, is because the best way to protect Americans is to stop the epidemic in Africa. And we need those health care workers to do that. So to put them in a position when they come back that no matter what, automatically they’re under quarantine can actually have unintended consequences. And that’s the reason why we’re concerned about that.”

SundayShows-w-candyDr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on ABC’s “This Week

“I think this idea that every single hospital can take care of a seriously ill Ebola patient right now is just not true. So what we’re going to be doing with the CDC and the state health authorities and the hospitals themselves, we know we have four hospitals that are there now, including my own hospital, but we need to pre-train people so that if we need to surge up we can. But I think we don’t want to get people to think that any hospital, community hospital is totally equipped to care for the patient. They must be able to identify and isolate and then from there get them to a place where you have pre-trained people who know how to do it.”

Fauci on CBS’s “Face the Nation

“The guidelines that were on the CDC were WHO guidelines that worked well for many, many years in approaching patients who have Ebola in the African setting, which is in a much less well developed setting, not the tertiary care. Now when you have patients here we do things that are much more aggressive with patients — intubation, hemodialysis — so the explore level is a different, particularly because you are keeping patients alive, because you have the capability. So, those guidelines had some aspects about it that we are going to improve on. For example, the guidelines did have some exposure of skin in the sense you had a mask but there was some skin that was exposed and some hair that was exposed. That is the thing that now in our setting of tertiary care we want to make sure that that’s no longer the case, that you have essentially everything covered.” Read more

Highlights From The 10.12.14 Sunday Shows

SundayShows-w-candyCDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden on CBS’s “Face the Nation

“The fact is that the individual who became ill who was, as per protocol, self-monitoring immediately when they developed symptoms. They isolated themselves, they were promptly isolated at the hospital so that any further spread from that individual was stopped and fundamentally, at this point, there are four things that we are doing. First is to make sure that that individual is cared for safely and effectively. Second, we’re identifying that individual’s contacts and our CDC team lead for this investigation on the ground in Dallas interviewed that individual in detail. Third, we now consider all of the health care workers who cared for the indexed patient potentially to have been exposed. And we’ll be rostering those individuals and determining which require active follow up in addition to their self-monitoring. And fourth, we will conduct a full investigation of what happens before health workers go in, what happens when they’re there, and what happens in taking out- taking off their protective equipment.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on ABC’s “This Week

“Well, certainly there have to have been an inadvertent, innocent breach of the protocol of taking care of a patient within the personal protective equipment. That extremely rarely happens. We’ve been taking care of Ebola patients since 1976. Groups like Doctors Without Borders who do that almost never have an infection because of the experience of doing this. So this happened certainly because there was — and the CDC is trying to find out now just what that breach was. But there was a breach in protocol, unfortunate for this very courageous health care worker.” Read more
