That is just it, I READ the facts presented and did not try to add or subtract anything. Just read the five articles [three were embedded links from the original article.
And NO, the media is NOT basically biased on everything they write. They delivered the facts of the story and presented them. YOUR biases started making assumptions. It is why I asked if you had a point to posting as the articles were very flat.
Oh, tell me then if you really READ the arcticle, if the media is just "delivering the facts", why did the company file a motion "asking to bar the press from the trial, saying the media attention would prevent it from receiving a fair trial." ? The media (KGO ABC7) definitely has an ax to grind
by rehashing the story and hyping the lawyers publicity stunt.
It is most likely caused by the nameless
hospital and nameless
doctor fuck up, and suing the device maker in this case is a pure money grab.
Conmed's attorney went on to file a motion asking for, not only a gag order to prevent attorneys from talking to the media, but specifically mentioning ABC7.
In the lawsuit, Carcione maintains the medical device that caught fire has a design flaw. The family wants the device taken off the market.
But he maker of the device Conmed said in its incident report that the operator's manual warns never to perform electrosurgery, such as the tonsillectomy, where there is an abundance of oxygen.
