Taking the Chantix Story National
Thanks to the several Friends of Unfair Park, including Uncle Barky, who've pointed out that on Wednesday, WFAA-Channel 8 medical reporter Janet St. James's story about Carter Albrecht and the smoking-cessation drug Chantix, which features an interview with Albrecht's girlfriend Ryann Rathbone, received prominent play on Good Morning America. And by prominent, I mean Janet St. James went to New York to present the story, which originally aired on Channel 8 Monday night, then sit down with Diane Sawyer afterward. For those who missed the GMA piece, it's available here. --Robert Wilonsky
