Snyderman: ‘Tell Me If You Would Walk by Somebody Who Has a Bone Sticking out of His Arm’

On today’s “Reliable Sources” on CNN, NBC News’ Dr. Nancy Snyderman appeared from Haiti to discuss the “Sanjay Syndrome,” the situation where TV news doctors are providing medical assistance in Haiti in addition to reporting. Host Howie Kurtz asked Snyderman about potential ethical concerns.

Snyderman said, “I think ethically I question all of it,” but added, “I guess the best thing I could ask of the critics is come here and walk in my shoes for a day and tell me if you would walk by somebody who has a bone sticking out of his arm. If you would walk by it, then I guess we’re just different people.”
