The AP’s David Bauder asks whether NBC News chief medical officer Dr. Nancy Snyderman has lost too much credibility to continue reporting on the key medical story of the moment, Ebola. “The quarantine against possible Ebola exposure ends this week” for Snyderman, Bauder writes, “but the troubles clearly aren’t over” for Snyderman’s NBC career:
An admitted lapse in the quarantine, combined with a curiously imprecise explanation, unleashed a furious response. NBC must now decide whether Snyderman’s credibility is too damaged for her to continue reporting on Ebola or other medical issues and, if so, for how long. The network would not comment.
