What a shock! Fox News consumer reporter John Stossell made the stunning admission on April 21 that he was currently in the hospital being treated for lung cancer! You’ll never believe what his biggest complaint of the ordeal is. Find out, right here.
Poor John Stossell! The 69-year-old Fox News consumer reporter found out that he has lung cancer on April 21, and immediately shared his experience with his loyal fans. Luckily, the noted journalist will probably be okay, but you’ll never believe what he had to say about his stay at the hospital! We have all the details, here.
Moments after John found out he had cancer on April 21, he rushed to share the info with his loyal fans on foxnews.com. He didn’t even wait to leave the hospital, saying “I write this from the hospital. Seems I have lung cancer.” However, he quickly put our minds at ease, saying “My doctors tell me my growth was caught early and I’ll be fine.”
He also gave us some insight into what the next steps are to recovery for him. “Soon I will barely notice that a fifth of my lung is gone,” he wrote. “I believe them. After all, I’m at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. U.S. News & World Report ranked it No. 1 in New York. I get excellent medical care here.”
But that’s when John returned to the typical tongue-in-cheek, brutal honestly he’s known for. “But as a consumer reporter, I have to say, the hospital’s customer service stinks. Doctors keep me waiting for hours, and no one bothers to call or email to say, “I’m running late.” Few doctors give out their email address. Patients can’t communicate using modern technology.”
And thus began the laundry list of complaints John has with the hospital. He also complains about the costly and often unnecessary tests that were run on him, the repeated medical history forms he was asked to fill out, and “indifference” of many hospital workers.
John is a libertarian pundit, and he used the illness as an opportunity to vouch for the free market, claiming that insurance companies and the government were responsible for the crappy care since there is no competition within the market. Leave it to a Fox News guy to use his cancer as a political talking point, but we must admit he makes a very good point. We hope John feels better as soon as possible!
