SLEAZY “QUACKBUSTER” SCAM SHUTS DOWN CANADA’S NUMBER ONE “ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE RADIO SHOW... It is time to get angry...

Opinion by Tim Bolen

I have a “project” North American health freedom fighters can get their teeth into. Read this article - get angry - and then get involved. It’s all explained here - and the reasons to get involved are obvious. And, we made it easy... It is all done on the internet.

The “Touch of Health Radio Show” with Christine McPhee was shut down the other day by Canadian Radio Executives acting under FALSE information provided to them by the “Quackbusters.” It was the biggest “Alternative Medicine” show in Canada. We need to get the show back on the air - and the “quackbusters” need to get smacked hard...

With this, the “Quackbuster” organization, headed by de-licensed MD Stephen Barrett, has had a MAJOR VICTORY against health freedom fighters in North America. They have managed, through a series of lies and misrepresentations, to convince Canadian Radio Executives that “Alternative Medicine” shows must be banned from Canadian broadcasting, as “they represent a danger to the Canadian Public.”

Barrett, who operates his murderous attack organization out of a basement in Allentown, Pennsylvania, has as his Canadian henchman, one Terry Polevoy MD, an acne doctor operating out of Kitchner, Ontario. Health leaders suspect that Barrett, who is in poor health, may be grooming Polevoy to succeed him as supreme leader in the North American conspiracy.

Operating in the way Barrett teaches, Polevoy has, in the current attack on McPhee, barraged Canadian Radio executives, the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commissions (CRTC), the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council(CBSC), and the radio stations, with bombacity, lies, and misrepresentations - all the while, holding up his MD license as evidence of his “credibility.” Polevoy operates a “hate” website (www.healthwatcher.net) focusing his character assassination tactics on health humanitarians who spurn the heavy use of dangerous pharmaceutical drugs.

Polevoy, who obviously has little scientific training, claims his MD license gives him god-like credibility. Apparently, he feels that license entitles him to bad behavior, also.

 

HOW TO TURN THIS LOSS INTO VICTORY...

North American Health Professionals, AND HEALTH ACTIVISTS, have long been aware of a plot to destroy the consumer-driven “Alternative Medicine/Health” movement. The conspirators, brazenly calling themselves “The Quackbusters,” falsely infer that there is something unwholesome, unsavory, or fraudulent, about leading-edge health professionals that don’t deluge their patients, and clients, with expensive, dangerous pharmaceutical drugs.

Health activists, and “alternative practitioners” together, outnumber the “Quackbuster” ranks 100,000 to 1. All the “Quackbusters” have are those “deep pockets” behind them - and they way things are - that’s probably a paper tiger. I think that when push comes to shove, Barrett, and his tiny little team, are going to find themselves very much alone in the world.

IT IS TIME TO PUSH AND SHOVE - and find out who is behind Barrett, Polevoy, and the others - and give them the bill for what they’ve done to North Americans.

Even worse for the “Quackbusters,” North Americans, in a huge consumer-driven movement, have turned their backs on allopathic “standard of care” buffoonery, relying instead on the more cost-effective “Alternative” approach to medicine. It is obvious that Americans, given the “choice,” want to be healthy, not drugged. And this fact alone rings the death knell for Barrett, and his cronies.

 

WHY DID BARRETT AND HIS CANADIAN MINIONS COME AFTER CHRISTINE MCPHEE?

 

“Choice” is the important word in the paragraph above. The only way the greedy drug lords can save themselves is to remove “choice” from Americans. That’s why their minions have focused on Christine McPhee in Canada. McPhee had a superb “Alternative Medicine” radio show covering FIVE MAJOR CANADIAN MARKETS. The “Quackbusters” were desperate to get her off the air - after all, with her show, Canadians were hearing the truth about health care - something Barrett, Polevoy, and company, can’t afford to let happen.

Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of caring North Americans have organized into political groups to defend against the endless onslaught. The operative word here has always been “defend.” It is time to go on the “offense” - it is time to shut down the “Quackbusters.”

Health Freedom fighters believe the attack comes from bonded subversive groups conspiratorially formed into attack units, and funded both directly, and indirectly by the sleaziest elements of the pharmaceutical drug cartel. James Carter, MD’s authoritative book “Racketeering in Medicine” succinctly explains the problem up to it’s publishing date in 1994. Others are working on an update of the “Quackbuster” activities to the minute.

 

NO ONE HAS EVER STOPPED THE “QUACKBUSTERS” BEFORE NOW...

Don’t get me wrong, lots of people have successfully defended against them - beaten back the attack - so to speak. But no one, so far, has made the attackers themselves, bleed, or wish they had adopted some other life activity. No one has made the attackers pay for what they’ve done, and do, every day, to the people of North America.

IT IS TIME FOR THAT. And, I’m about to tell you how to do that - how you can help begin the smashing of the conspiracy, the destruction of the plotters, and help save the lives of millions of North Americans who are now being denied first-rate health care because of those conspirator’s activities.

 

 

POLEVOY’S OPERATION IS TYPICAL OF THE “QUACKBUSTER” TACTICS.

“Know thine enemy”... and you know how to beat him...

Canadian Polevoy is like one of those cartoon musicians (a one-man band) that plays the saxophone, the trombone, the drums, a keyboard, and twenty other instruments, trying to sound like a big band. And, all the while holding up his music degree from Julliard, as though that were justification for cacophony.

To the trained ear (health professionals) Polevoy sounds, and is, ludicrous. But it isn’t the trained ear Polevoy is addressing. He is pure fraud - addressing those that are unaware, shoving in their face his MD license, as though that were some sort of special God-issued certificate, justifying lies, misrepresentations, and bad behavior - cacophony.

An MD license is issued by the people (that’s us), and WE decide who gets one, and under what circumstances. We, the people, have the ultimate responsibility, and obligation, to decide who, and under what circumstances, can act in the intimate capacity of functioning as a “doctor.”

Tell me people, after observing Polevoy’s “hate” website, and his horrible actions, do we want people of the Polevoy ilk, to be able to touch us, or our loved ones, intimately? In fact, don’t we, as a society, have an obligation to protect the “unawares” from the likes of Polevoy?

In Polevoy’s attack on McPhee, first he tried to shut her down with scare tactics; stalking, and intimidation techniques. Polevoy followed McPhee for months from place to place, peering and peeping at her from concealment, but letting her know by e-mail afterwards that he was there... Terrified, McPhee called in the police - who visited Polevoy with some very pointed questions.

Polevoy made it clear that his intent was to shut down her “alternative medicine” radio shows across Canada. Polevoy, this time, (no more disguises, and “peeping” this time), has help from a Patricia Marchuk MD, who appears to be one more quackpot illiterate when it comes to non-drug science-based alternative modalities.

Polevoy and Marchuk developed a campaign of outright lies and misrepresentations of the subject material delivered on McPhee’s shows. Using their “MD” titles to give them credibility for their dishonest campaign, Polevoy and Marchuk falsely claimed to radio industry executives that McPhee, and her “alternative medicine” guests represent a serious danger to the Canadian listening public.

The problem is that Canadian radio executives believed, or pretended to believe, Polevoy and Marchuk’s lies. Because of that perceived “danger” they did, in fact, take McPhee’s shows off the air.

Polevoy will probably get promoted (as the “heir apparent”), in the Barrett organization, for this. I predict we’ll soon see his name as “Editor” of some sleazy drug promoting magazine. Rumors say that Barrett is in “bad health.” I suspect Polevoy wants to be the new supreme leader - when Barrett goes out in the pine box.

A BUG IN THE RADIO EXECUTIVE’S ETHICS OINTMENT...

The radio network that is terminating McPhee’s shows carries two “conventional” MDs, Gabe Merkin, and Al Hister - both of which spout the standard, and very dangerous, “allopathic” model of health care. Hister, who’s show is owned by one of the networks, has 30 stations carrying that show. Merkin, a US based MD, has 60 stations - and his show is a “property” of a radio network (one of those cancelling McPhee’s shows).

All of which forces Canadians to hear, on the radio “air” they own, and have licensed out to radio companies, only one side of a significant social and political issue. Canadians are now bombarded with Hister, and Merkin opinion, with no attention given to the other political opinion. In fact, it looks like Merkin’s whole show is an “Infomercial” for his “News Letter for sale.”

 

IS THIS A CIVIL AND CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY?

All is not rosie for the “quackbusters” and the radio broadcasters that own those MD shows. A good case can be made that Canadian broadcast executives, coupled with the subversive “quackbuster” organization, are engaging in a CIVIL AND CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY to eliminate “Alternative medicine” from Canadian broadcasting. And for this boys and girls, there is a solution...

 

SIMPLE FACTS:

SIMPLE FACT ONE: Canadians own Canadian Radio, and license a “privilege” to radio stations. Radio Executives with their finger in the financial pie of one side of a significant issue, do not own Canadian Radio or Television - they can lose those licenses.

ANSWER ONE: Use this tool. Take the licenses away from those stations and networks that don’t comply with Canadian law. Give the licenses to those businesses that will comply, and properly “balance” Canadian social and political issues in their programming. Tell the CRTC, the CBSC, and your elected officials, what you want, and why. You’ll get it... And, the reason you’ll get it is right below...

SIMPLE FACT TWO: Health activists outnumber the “Quackbusters” 100,000 to 1...

ANSWER TWO: Use that fact... Speak out loudly, right now, and continuously.

 

HOW TO SPEAK OUT...

There are TWO MAJOR ISSUES that need to be dealt with.

(1). THE FIRST IMPORTANT ISSUE is the attack by Polevoy, and the virulence of that attack by Polevoy, on Christine McPhee, and “Alternative Medicine in Canada,” AND Polevoy’s relationship with the subversive “quackbuster” organization.

 

(2). THE SECOND IMPORTANT ISSUE is the one of “Balanced Presentation” - Canadian broadcast law “licenses” radio and television stations, in effect, giving them a broadcast monopoly over an area. That monopoly situation mandates, among other things, that a “balanced” presentation must be made of a “social or political issue.” The social/political issue here is “allopathic versus alternative medicine” - and it is a recognized significant social/political issue in Canada.

The Canadian people have the right to take the licenses away from those radio and television stations that refuse to comply with Canadian law - and give those licenses to companies that WILL “balance” their programming.

Removing Christine McPhee from the radio without removing Art Hister MD and Gabe Merkin MD, etc., violates Canadian law - for there are very few “Alternative Medicine shows on Canadian Radio. Hence, there is NO balance...

Having a radio station conglomerate decide that one side of a social issue has no value, or “is dangerous,” could be construed as a violation of their licensing agreement - and that license could now be handed to a competitor that will “balance” social issues as required. The preferred “balance” would be to, not only give Christine McPhee her stations back, but match, hour-per-hour, with Lister and Merkin.

Let’s put those radio stations and that network in front of the CRTC and Parliament in a license hearing.

 

 

 

 

THE ACTIVE SOLUTION:

Round One...

Five things need to be done by health activists, not just by Canadians, but from around the world. All can be done on the internet. All five of these things need to be done by each and every supporter, and they need to be done all at once. Sample e-mails are at the end of this instruction.

(1). A complaint with the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons about Polevoy's activities. Those activities involve several issues.

(a). His STALKING (make sure you use the word "stalking") of Canadian radio personality Christine McPhee. Emphasize his actions of "following her around" to her radio show sites. Make sure you say that she had to call the police to get him to stop following her - and that the police kept two uniformed officers on site for some time, to deal with Polevoy. Mention the fact that you have heard that there were "others" (and there are) he followed (but you don't know their names). When they investigate they'll get those names.

(b). His "hate" website, which was completely inappropriate behavior for a man using the term "MD" after his name (professional misconduct). Emphasize the fact that Polevoy's website attacks drags down the medical profession as a whole. Make a big deal that his "hate" website was so offensive, and Polevoy was so "out there," that his Internet Service Provider finally took his site down at 3:30 PM on July 4th, 2000 - permanently. Mention his connection with the subversive “quackbuster” organization.

(c). His website is, and was, so virulent, that it brings into question Polevoy's mental state. Ask the question "Does the College of Physicians and Surgeons have an obligation to protect the public from those in a state of mental disorder?

(d) Ask the question "Considering that Polevoy's actions were public for some time, why haven't you acted before to stop this MD's professional misconduct?"

 

(2). An “Urgent” complaint to the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) about the radio network taking Christine McPhee off the air, allegedly, because of Polevoy's lies and misrepresentations.

Emphasize that this is a significant “Canadian social issue” in which the radio network, without any investigation on their own, has taken the side of the “allopaths.” Emphasize that Polevoy and Marchuk, lied, and/or misrepresented facts, in their complaints - and that the radio stations did no investigations of the actual facts. Emphasize that the radio stations that made the decision to remove “Alternative Health” from Canadian Broadcasting have a financial interest in the issue (they own the MD shows).

Include, in the complaint, a description of Polevoy and his "hate" website. Send a copy of the complaint to the radio stations, and the networks and the station owners. This is a "restraint of freedom of speech issue, and a balance issue." Ask the CRTC to “Remove the license of any Canadian radio station which does not do “balanced” broadcasting in this significant social and political issue. Send a copy to the local newspaper.

(3). (a). A complaint the CBSC exactly like the one above, plus below...

(b). Complain to the CBSC that they, themselves, have apparently failed in their mission to “inform their member broadcasters of significant social issues.”

(4). A complaint to the station owners - same as above...

(5). Send a copy of the above complaints to all Ontario MPs. Make sure you send a cover e-mail that states that the Ontario College of Physicians has been aware of Polevoy’s activities for some time, and has obviously chosen not to discipline him. This, in itself, shows the OPSC’s tacit approval of Polevoy and his activities - if not their own involvement.

 

 

SAMPLE E-MAILS:

Note: E-mails to each sub-group are similar. The first is to the CPSO and the CMA. The second set is to the Elected and appointed government officials that have jurisdiction over the issues. The third set is to the radio executives.

FORMAL COMPLAINT:

Dear Registrar:

Terry Polevoy MD, a medical doctor under your jurisdiction, is an embarrassment to the medical profession. He is now, and has been for some time, engaging in a series of activities which could only be described as “Professional Misconduct.” I believe the seriousness of his misconduct merits an investigation for the purpose of disciplinary action not excluding revocation of licensure.. Please begin such an investigation immediately.

It may be that Polevoy, in his current mental state, is a danger to the Canadian community. As such, it might be prudent to suspend his license pending outcome of the investigation.

 

 

Polevoy, it appears, is obsessed with a public attack on “Alternative Medicine” proponents. His attack method is virulent, far outside normal discussion method, focuses on personal attack, defamation, character assassination, and malicious falsehood. Polevoy never uses scientific argument, nor does he back up his virulent attacks with facts. He uses instead, as his “proof,” as it were, of his credibility, his MD license - and ONLY his MD license.

I believe Polevoy, with his virulent, obsessive attacks on proponents of alternative medicine, may be in violation of several subsections of clause 51(1)(c) of the Health Professions Procedural Code, as follows:

Subsection 4) - Practicing the profession while the member’s ability is impaired...

Subsection 5) - Having a conflict of interest...

Subsection 13) - Making a misrepresentation respecting a remedy, treatment or device...

Subsection 14) - Making a claim respecting the utility of a remedy, treatment, device or procedure other than a claim which can be supported as reasonable professional opinion...

Subsection 16) - Falsifying a record relating to the member’s practice...

Subsection 18) - Signing or issuing, in the member’s professional capacity, a document that the member knows, or ought to know, is false or misleading...

Subsection 33) - An act or omission relevant to the practice of medicine that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional...

Subsection 34) - Conduct unbecoming a physician...

THE FACTS...

Polevoy, police reports show, STALKED Canadian Radio Personality Christine McPhee, until, terrified, she called in police. He followed her around, affecting disguises, for months - then further terrified her by e-mailing her the details of his stalking actions. Police agencies felt it necessary to assign armed uniformed officers to protect McPhee from Polevoy. Reports show that McPhee was not the only female Polevoy stalked.

Polevoy operates a “hate” website targeting “Alternative Health” practitioners, and competent Canadian authority. On this website, Polevoy characterizes all of his targets as “cheats, frauds, swindlers, whose sole motivation is profit at any cost.” His virulent attacks, both by e-mail, and on his website (www.healthwatcher.net bring into question his overall mental state.

Alternative Medicine is a significant social and political issue in Canada. Competent authority ie; Universities, medical and health associations, government agencies, elected and appointed officials, and the Canadian Medical Association have legitimized the “Alternative” model. Polevoy accuses them all of the same “fraud, swindling, etc...”

Polevoy’s most recent campaign is a venomous attack, in partnership with a Patricia Marchuk MD, against Radio Personality Christine McPhee - again. Polevoy has, in the current attack on McPhee, barraged Canadian Radio executives, the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commissions (CRTC), the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council(CBSC), and the radio stations, with bombacity, lies, and misrepresentations - all the while, holding up his MD license as evidence of his “expertise.” They offered no proof - except their MD licenses, claiming that that license qualified them as “experts.”

Not only were Polevoy and Marchuk’s claims about McPhee’s show FALSE, but their claim that they were “Experts” solely based on that licensure were also FALSE. Canadian law makes no provision, nor intended any situation, placing an MD license as some God-like authority of health or medical issues. Canadian law, in fact, forces MDs to take further training and qualify in a field before claiming expertise in that field.

Neither Polevoy, nor Marchuk, have engaged in, or completed, any special training in the areas they publicly claim expertise. Polevoy and Marchuk MISREPRESENTED their qualifications to Canadian Radio Executives - to further their plot.

The problem is that Canadian radio executives believed Polevoy and Marchuk’s lies. Because of that perceived “danger” they did, in fact, take McPhee’s shows off the air.

Considering that Polevoy's actions were, and have been, public for some time, why haven't you acted before to stop this MD's unprofessional conduct?

Please act now... I believe the situation to be urgent.

FORMAL COMPLAINT:

Honorable Sheila Copps:

As you know, Canadian Radio has an obligation to broadcast a “balance” in significant social and political issues. A recent occurrence has made it clear to me that some broadcasters have no intent of following that rule. Without a proper investigation, representatives of the below described broadcasters have removed one whole side of a significant social issue - declaring it’s offering “dangerous to the Canadian public.” They may have done so for financial gain...

The Touch of Health Radio Show, produced by HTI productions Inc., hosted by Canadian Radio personality Christine McPhee has been taken off the air after FALSE complaints were filed against the show, to the radio stations, by a representatives of a subversive political group.

The radio stations were convinced by an organization calling itself “Canadian Quackwatch,” that McPhee’s interviews represented “a threat to Canadian safety.” This hoax, perpetrated on the unknowing(?) radio broadcast management was completed for the express purpose of removing “balance” in Canadian radio over “one of the most significant social and political issues facing Canada - the dispute between allopathic (conventional) and alternative (leading-edge) medicine.”

Canadian radio management was completely duped - and failed to make their own investigation of the charges (which would have quickly exonerated McPhee) - which, to me, suggests complicity. Two “MD” shows, featuring only “allopathic medicine” dialogue and advertising, and owned by a network and a station group comprise ninety (90) daily broadcasts of one side of a significant political issue across Canada - with, now, zero (0) “alternative medicine” viewpoints.

There is now no “balance” over this issue, what-so-ever, in Canadian radio.

“Canadian Quackwatch,” in reality, one MD named Terry Polevoy - an acne doctor who operates a website health professionals describe as “a hate website,” began their campaign to discredit McPhee in March 2000 with a series of “hate” type articles on his website, actual “stalking” of Christine McPhee (following her around), and spurious complaints to the CRTC, CBSC, and the radio stations.

 

Polevoy’s website was so virulent, that his Internet Service provider removed him from the Internet. Polevoy has since found another provider.

Please deal with this issue immediately, and restore “balance” to Canadian broadcasting over this significant Canadian social and political issue. Canadians are suffering.

Please use your influence to see that a criminal investigation of “Canadian Quackwatch” subversive activities begins immediately.

As you know, Canadian Radio has an obligation to broadcast a “balance” in significant social and political issues. A recent occurrence has made it clear to me that some broadcasters have no intent of following that rule. Without a proper investigation, representatives of the below described broadcasters have removed one whole side of a significant social issue - declaring it’s offering “dangerous to the Canadian public.” They may have done so for financial gain.

The Touch of Health Radio Show, produced by HTI productions Inc., hosted by Canadian Radio personality Christine McPhee has been taken off the air after FALSE complaints were filed against the show, to the radio stations, by a representatives of a subversive political group.

The radio stations were convinced by an organization calling itself “Canadian Quackwatch,” that McPhee’s interviews represented “a threat to Canadian safety.” This hoax, perpetrated on the unknowing radio broadcast management was completed for the express purpose of removing “balance” in Canadian radio over “one of the most significant social and political issues facing Canada - the dispute between allopathic (conventional) and alternative (leading-edge) medicine.”

Canadian radio management was completely duped - and failed to make their own investigation of the charges (which would have quickly exonerated McPhee) - which, to me, suggests complicity. Two “MD” shows, featuring only “allopathic medicine” dialogue and advertising, and owned by a network and a station group comprise ninety (90) daily broadcasts of one side of a significant political issue across Canada - with, now, zero (0) “alternative medicine” viewpoints.

There is now no “balance” over this issue, what-so-ever, in Canadian radio.

“Canadian Quackwatch,” in reality, one MD named Terry Polevoy - an acne doctor who operates a website health professionals describe as “a hate website,” began their campaign to discredit McPhee in March 2000 with a series of “hate” type articles on his website, actual “stalking” of Christine McPhee (following her around), and spurious complaints to the CRTC, CBSC, and the radio stations.

Polevoy’s website was so virulent, that his Internet Service provider removed him from the Internet. Polevoy has since found another provider.

Please deal with this issue immediately, and restore “balance” to Canadian broadcasting over this significant Canadian social and political issue. Canadians are suffering.

Please use your influence to see that a criminal investigation of “Canadian Quackwatch” subversive activities begins immediately.
