raisindot:How can one give credence to a report that doesn't even get the name of the drug right, either in spelling or pronunciation?
It's Belsomra, not Belsorma.
Bob Luken:LOL Yeah, no "real" news agency like CBS would get it wrong, ........ would they?
LOL Gotta love the FOX haters

That's what she said. (Bada boom)
raisindot:Much of the credibility of any news organization rests in its ability to get information right. Especially when it comes to something as important as a new drug to market. It doesn't matter whether it's FOX, CNN, MSNBC, the three networks or anyone making the error--anyone who screws up needs to be properly raked over the coals, whether the topic is a new drug, a war, a crime, or any other story. This isn't a "breaking deadline" type of story where a lack of information or a rush to get the story to the air might have caused such an error. It's simply sloppy editing. The fact that not only was the drug name spelled wrong, but also PRONOUNCED wrong by the anchors (who were obviously reading a teleprompter where the word was misspelled) in the story itself, and the fact that neither that two medical "experts" pointed this error out demonstrates the sloppiness of the editing staff for this particular segment. This is only a comment on the credibility of this particular story, and is not a general comment about FOX News in general. Since I don't watch FOX News, I don't have the data to make general comments on their editing team. As jgibv pointed out, other networks/news organizations spelled it wrong, too, and they're just as culpable for getting it wrong.
