    ...when you minimize serious errors and cover-ups because you don't like how they could be used against your cause.  Glasnost, to use a dated term, is always best when it comes to good vs. bad medical practice--we can handle the other side's distortions.

      Bad things happen every day at hospitals all over America.

      The point is that corporate media are replaying this story from 2008, cuz its got the fear words: cancer and malpractice.

      Dr. Kao owuld have been able to make these mistakes at most hospitals. He was bad and dishonest.

        This story is only incidentally about Kao.  It's about a failed process of oversight and review.  The idea that you'd want to minimize it into oblivion because it could be used against (y)our cause is not something I want to be part of.

          That a surgeon faking surgical reports is something you'd look for routinely ??? -- This is the first time I've seen something like this one.

          Then it was news. Not now.
