Debunking Suzanne Somers' Knockout

Dr. David Gorski in Science-Based Medicine writes Suzanne Somers’ Knockout: Dangerous misinformation about cancer (part 1) which shreds Somer's new book and promotional tour. It's long and detailed and good.

Turns out Somers had a serious reaction to a fungal infection called valley fever because her immune system was weakened due to the steroids she takes. But she doesn't understand that the cortisol replacement therapy she's on is in fact steroids and weakens (not strengthens) her immune system.

Why can't any of the news programs she goes on to promote her book do any fact-checking?
