The British press is buzzing this morning with reports that ABC’s Martin Bashir is battling a brain tumor. A source close to Bashir tells the Telegraph that doctors found a tumor growing on his pituitary gland, but said that he wants “to get on with his life”.
The growth was first discovered after Bashir received treatment for a head injury suffered April 18 while he prepared for that night’s Nightline.
ABC News tells TVNewser, “An MRI scan recently discovered a small growth on Martin Bashir’s pituitary gland. Bashir’s doctors have advised that no immediate action be taken as they monitor the situation month to month. Bashir is feeling well as he continues to keep a full schedule anchoring and reporting for ABC News.”
