Fox's Ablow Unrepentant After Medical Experts Condemned "Shameful" Behavior: "My Analysis Is Accurate."

Fox News' Keith Ablow issued a defiant statement defending his cable news psychoanalysis of President Obama after being condemned by medical experts

Here is a sample of the type of bizarre and offensive commentary offered by Ablow:

Yesterday the Associated Press reported on criticism of Ablow from other psychiatrists, including the past president of the American Psychiatric Association's statement that "it is shameful and unfortunate that he is given a platform by Fox News or any other media organization."

In his statement, Ablow responded that "As a psychiatrist, news commentator, and medical professional, my analysis is accurate. I stand by what I have said." He added that "Psychiatrists are uniquely situated to comment on political figures, and the interface of politics and psychology is improved by psychological analysis."

Ablow reiterated his remote psychoanalysis of President Obama, claiming, "it is readily apparent that a President who tours the world apologizing for America, who was part of a church in which the pastor preached 'God damn America!' and who admonished American entrepreneurs that they did not build their own businesses is a President who has issues with the nation of which he is President." His statement concludes, "My commentary is accurate, and I will continue to speak truth to power."

Ablow is a member of Fox News' "Medical A-Team." In recent months he claimed that President Obama had the desire to make America "suffer" and would allow an outbreak of Ebola, said Obama won't "fully defend" America because "he has it in" for America.
