Besser joins ABC's' Dr. Timothy Johnson to report on medical issues for the news division.
Johnson, who has been at ABC News since 1975, has been named chief medical editor, while Besser will join the network in September as senior health and medical editor.
Besser did a stint as a television health reporter for a San Diego station early in his career. He currently heads the CDC's Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response, where he is responsible for the CDC's public health emergency preparedness and emergency response activities. He will step down from the CDC in mid-August.
Dr. Besser: I don't think you have heard of ASTELIN.
It is the best nose spray I have found. My nose no longer runs, it protect me from allergies.
Please tell your audience about it.

I saw a news brief today 1/6/10 concerning MRSA. I have not yet seen the piece, set to run later today, but I do have an amazing solution to safely eliminating bacteria and virus. It's EPA CAT IV Registered, NSF certified for Food Contact Surfaces. Fast, Simple, Economical.
Contact me for more information.

I attended Pennel Elementary School in 1937. The school physician at that time was Dr. Joseph Besser, a very fine gentleman. I was curious as to weather this man could be the grandfather of Dr. Richard Besser.

Unfortunately, for that growing proportion of the population which instinctively disagrees with the current politically dominant paradigm of 'disease' and its treatment, Besser's appointment will be seen as just another cynical attempt by government to consolidate propoganda control on the media.
Any right minded person would reject such a view as conspiracy theory paranoia, except that there is too much money being made out of this 'pandemic' and too much unseemly haste to market to totally discount such a view. By their fruits thou shalt know them
