* AllNaturalSnakeOil: Doctor Oz seems to have a frequent-passenger card on the Health Topic Bandwagon. If a current rumor or half-fact-checked news story is circulating newspapers or the internet, you can guarantee that it'll be on his show. Everything from "This herbal supplement will cure everything" that later turn out to be little more than flavor-enhancements to ACTUAL cures, if not outright placebos (acai berries most recently spring to mind) to "magic beans" (his phrase) to lightning-fast weight loss that doesn't require leaving the couch or missing ''The Dr. Oz Show''.
** On at least one episode, he dedicated an entire segment to homeopathy -- which these days is generally considered a pseudoscience. This trope is the main reason he was [[HauledBeforeASenateSubcommittee called in to testify]] about his show.

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: The petition to fire him from Columbia University, led by Dr. Henry Miller, was quickly deduced to be a publicity stunt. An ill-conceived one, as Oz boasted that he was being "silenced" by academics and shills for Big Pharma. If you come at the King you'd best not miss.

Oh wait, there was a show called ''{{Series/Oz}}'' and that was a show that really worked medical miracles, because every time I saw Christopher Meloni’s muscled-up ass bounce up and down all my ailments went away.
