7:00 am
medicine sullies the reputation of columbia university and undermines the trust tha esse to physician/patient relationships. >> if i wanted to stop him, i would write a letter recommending he be fired from abc. i wouldn't write a letter to columbia saying stop him from doing the job he's good at. >> reporter: the new round of criticism came as oz took on the first round of critics on his show. >> the question you should be asking yourself, i did for quite a while, is what's the motivation. why now? >> reporter: in their op-ed, the colleagues said he should begin with a simple disclaimer. >> the show's purpose is not to talk about medicine. it's to talk about the good life. >> reporter: in an interview that took place before the interview was published -- >> it's called the dr. oz show. we have oz as the middle and doctor is up in the little bar for a reason.
7:01 am
i want people to realize that i'm a doctor and i'm coming into their lives to be supportive of them. but it's not a medical show. >> reporter: for "today," stephanie gosk, nb. >> dr. oz, good morning. good to have you here. let's start where that piece left off. you said the word doctor is up in the corner of the graphics internationally. but you often wear scrubs on the show and people trust what you say because you have a medical doctor. have you upheld that trust over the years? >> without question. i'm proud of what we've done on the show. it's much broader than a medical lexture series. people don't want to be hounded about information that's irrelevant to their lives. it's about celebrating life and getting to them where they live. >> do you think when a doctor becomes the host of a television show, that he or she deserves a certain leeway and can do and say things on the air that perhaps you wouldn't do or say in private practice? >> it's much broader than what a
7:02 am
doctor might speak about on their own practice. i'm going to embrace unconventional routes. matt, i've always done it. my whole life has been about pushing boundaries. looking around the corner. both high-tech solutions but also some low-tech approaches. i think people have to get comfortable. in america, that's where the conversation is moving. >> this is the way you position it. you tend to position yourself as a crusader for your viewers. and their good health. and the little guy taking on the big guys. but these doctors are positioning you very differently. they're saying you're careless and reckless as a doctor and you could be endangering the health of those viewers. >> to be clear, there are different types of attacks that come out. some have agendas. the ones i dealt with last week and yesterday, were folks who had to clear gmo biases. i think they were unfair not wanting us to have that
7:03 am
conversation. when i talk about hard core medical issues which i do, it is a medical show in i do cover those topics but it's broader than that. hard core medical topics, we're all buttoned up. but i have to go beyond that. because health is not always found in a doctor's office. nutrition is a good example. >> but when you use words like breakthrough and radical and miracle to describe products or processes on your show, does the doctor in you ever cringe at what the talk show host in you is saying? >> i am proud of all those words. there's only one time i have not been proud. and that's the frustration that's been expressed about weight loss supplements. which i wish i could take back the words i said about them. this is a flawed area. i haven't talked about them in a year. so many americans think i'm all about the fake ads coming into their spam folders. that's not who i am. what i'm trying to do is help people understand their bodies better so they can be the expert on their bodies.
7:04 am
so when they go to talk to their doctor, that is supported. i hear from viewers and doctors all the time about how we have helped make that confers easier for them. because there are themes in america that we don't associate with health. as a good example, the nutrients we put in your body. that has to be a forefront on my show. >> going back to the criticism from faculty members at columbia. quote, many of us are spending a significant amount of our time debunking ozzisms regarding metabolism game changers. irrespective of the underlying motives, this sullies the reputation of columbia university and undermines the trust that is essential to physician/patient relationships. sullying the reputation of the university. that's very strong stuff. >> it's actually -- i'm appreciative in that same le applauded many things we do. you're not going to please
7:05 am
everyone. that's not my goal. my job is to help america understand the opportunity towards health. there are going to be times when i'm going to discuss topics where we just don't have all the information yet. other times we're going to be extraordinarily targeted because we have a truly new breakthrough on health. the show has to be broader than what might take place in the doctor's office. and i completely respect why so many of my colleagues might have a difficulty with that. but i appreciate many do understand. >> and if more and many doctors come out and criticize you, can you survive this? can you show survive this? >> without question. i expect my colleagues -- this is an important topic to come out there. and we are hearing from many. some critical, some supportive. the goal for all of us is it has to be a focus on people who need our help. i expect them to continue to be discussed. and i'm celebrating on our show, our 1,000th episode next year, i want to do the show as long as
7:06 am
we can because i think it helps make america a better place. >> good of you to talk about it in person. thanks very much. and let's go over to al for a check of the weather. >> all right, matt. thank you so much. and not only are we talking about severe weather, we're talking about unseasonably cold weather. i mean, this is very cool. we've got this upper level low that's been spinning around and the jet stream's down to the south. that allows the cold air to come in. we've got frost, freeze warnings, freeze watches stretching from iowa all the way to new england today. this is crazy stuff. look at these temperatures. highs today, caribou 44. syracuse 43. saturday more of the same. we start to see a little moderating on sunday. but again, temperatures anywhere from 5 to 10 degrees below average. so we're not looking for a warm-up until some time ea that's wha 7:38. happy friday to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren. this is bevel deer.

the mons ser a prehistoric reptile. or even a swimming elephant. >> hoax. this one, hoax. >> reporter: but what does a man who has hunted for nessie for years say? >> this is more like a giant eel than a prehistoric monster. >> reporter: he questioned whether google will help solve the mystery. you'd think that technology would mean that if it is there, there would be more sightings and more pictures. >> not necessarily. not if it's an animal that virtually never comes to the surface. >> reporte the answer simply and back now live. let's take another look at one of those google images that they have taken on that lake. in the middle of the lake,
