ABC’s Matt Gutman Talks to Teen Doctor Accused of Fraud: ‘I’d Still Like to Finish the Interview’

By Mark Joyella 

ABC News correspondent Matt Gutman wasn’t the only reporter to talk to 18-year-old Malachi Love-Robinson (Gutman’s GMA interview was labeled “exclusive,” though portions of a local news interview with Love-Robinson did air on NBC’s Today), but ABC’s may have been the most entertaining.

Love-Robinson was arrested Tuesday in West Palm Beach, Fla., in his medical clinic on charges he was practicing medicine without a license. The teenager dodged most of Gutman’s questions about his medical training, and then opted to get up and walk out.

When Gutman asked “Are you a fraud? Because it seems like everything you’re saying to me is either evasive or an outright lie,” Love-Robinson decided he’d had enough. “I don’t appreciate your tone. I don’t appreciate the way you’re portraying this interview to actually be.”

“I’m going to have to cut this interview short,” Love-Robinson said, and walked out.

Gutman told TVNewser he hopes to get another chance to sit down with Love-Robinson. “There’s a lot about Malachi that we don’t know,” Gutman said. “I’d still like a chance to finish the interview.”
