Here’s something unusual yet understandable under the circumstances: The most-featured guest on today’s Sunday shows was also the most-featured guest on last week’s Sunday shows. Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases won’t hit all five this time but he’ll have the lead interview on “This Week,” “Face the Nation,” and “Fox News Sunday.” I wonder if that’s been in the works for days or something that was only hastily arranged after Dr. Craig Spencer came down with Ebola in NYC. As for CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden, he’s nowhere to be found for the second straight week. Looks like the White House has retired him for the time being as the administration’s chief mouthpiece on Ebola. I wonder why.
Actually, the most interesting Ebola-themed segment this morning should be the one with Dr. Rick Sacra, who survived the disease with the help of a transfusion of antibody-rich blood from fellow survivor Dr. Kent Brantly. He’ll be on “Meet the Press.” And if none of that grabs you, Debbie Wasserman Schultz will appear on “State of the Union” to demonstrate her latest groundbreaking techniques in ignoring questions about Barack Obama. The full line-up is at the AP.
