Dr. Kent Brantly: I think there is a lot of irrational fear about Ebola

Dr. Kent Brantly contracted Ebola while working as a missionary in Liberia and he is one of the few success stories of this crisis. Dr. Brantly was the first Ebola patient to arrive in the U.S. After doctors in Atlanta helped him recover from the disease, he has become an advocate for those still battling Ebola. Dr. Brantly has donated plasma to three other patients. He spoke to  Anderson about the importance of fighting the spread of Ebola in West Africa, but warns "the answer is not simply closing the borders."

    Duh, 3000 die from the flu each year, 10,000 or more in a bad flu year.

    No hysteria about that.
    One guy dies of Ebola and the Corporate media goes BANANAS.

    time for the corporate media to DO THEIR JOB!

    STOP the fear mongering to sell newspapers and get traffic.
