** 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''.

* 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.

-->'''[[http://dlisted.com/2015/04/24/the-dr-oz-show-isnt-a-medical-show-okay/#more-175219 Michael K.]]''': As Iíve said a million times before, my mom is a major Dr. Oz fan mom and although she doesnít totally believe in everything he says, she will knife a bitch who talks major shit about him. Thatís why I keep a suit of armor in her spare bedroom closet. Whenever Iím at her house and sheís watching Dr. Oz, I have to put on that suit of armor so I can safely talk shit about him in front of her. Since my mom is an Ozhead, sheíd probably agree with him about his show [[{{Doublespeak}} not being a medical show]]. Itís not a medical show. Itís CHURCH!

* TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs: 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 scare-tactics like "PLASTIC CONTAINERS GIVE YOU CANCER!" ... If you leave them out in the sunlight for a month, then microwave them repeatedly, then drink the stuff that's been in there the entire time.
** On at least one episode, he dedicated an entire segment to homeopathy -- which these days is generally considered a pseudoscience.
** This can get worse when you have ''nurses'' falling for some of the more questionable stuff that's shown on the show.
** This trope is the main reason he was [[HauledBeforeASenateSubcommittee called in to testify to congress]] about his show.
