Dr. Phil Fibs? Oh noes!

Found at the website of HSLDA.

It would appear that Dr. Phil did indeed either publicly tell a fib or made certain statements based on faulty information that someone else told him existed. Either way, he's not personally laid eyes on the fabricated research he personally said exists. The only remaining question is, will he be a man and publicly correct this fib/error? If so, will he say it really fast like they do the side effects on Viagra and Zoloft commercials (you know, if I weren't depressed already I'm pretty sure dry mouth, insomnia, sexual side effects, diarrhea, and nausea would do the trick and as bad as I would feel for someone showing up at the ER with something that shall remain nameless lasting longer than four hours, the thought still amuses me every single time)? Or will he just run a correction in tiny print with the credits after the show? Perhaps he'll just ignore all the emails and letters I'm certain he's receiving.

I don't watch Dr. Phil all that much and I've really no opinion about him as a person at all. I do, however, find it interesting enough to watch and see what someone who advises others on their own personal behavior (for a living) does in such a predicament.
