F&FW Rehabs Its Mixologist–Finally

Almost two months late, Clayton Morris’ “master mixologist” gets it right: Alcohol and Tylenol don’t mix. Today, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris brought back his fave NYC bartender/mixologist, Pamela Wiznitzer, for a return visit to apparently correct the record on hangover cures and rehabilitate her reputation with FNC viewers: Approximately, two months ago, in a similar F&FW segment (10/13/13), Wiznitzer risibly remarked, “I’m gonna tell you one thing: Aspirin is not what you should be taking if you’re drinking….But, ibuprofen and Tylenol are very safe!”

Subsequently, Carpe Diem responded with a scathing article entitled, “F&FW Med Malpractice? Tylenol Hangover Cure!” In reply, Witnitzer conceded “the dangers of using Tylenol as a hangover cure.” Unfortunately, F&FF and its co-hosts, including Clayton [and Anna Kooiman (Tucker Carlson absent)], did not follow suit and failed to alert their misinformed audience to those very dangers posthaste.

Today, Wiznitzer returned with more holiday hangover cures and this time she got it right (in her interview segment with Clayton, Anna, and Tucker).

Hinting at the issue of alcohol and Tylenol that she and Clayton had flubbed a few months ago, Anna asked, “And, some medications to stay away from: You say, ‘Advil may be good but aspirin may be bad?’”* Correcting her previous assurance, Wiznitzer answered, “Yeah, no aspirin, no Tylenol….”

Clarifying the matter all the more for the audience, Tucker interposed, “So, Tylenol can actually be dangerous when mixed with alcohol?” Nodding her head, Wiznitzer acknowledged, “Tylenol can be dangerous. There are studies that lead to the fact that it can have issues with your kidney.” Grimacing, she added, “Severe issues!”

Better late than never? Yes, but, Fox & Friends Weekend viewers deserve the truth in a timely fashion. When a guest screws up and gets the facts wrong, especially, if it affects the health and the very lives of its audience, F&FF producers and its anchors need to bite the bullet and correct the record then and there–not two months later.

On the bright side, at least, F&FW–and its mixologist–finally did get it right.

    The mixologist continues to make mistakes. Today she mentions that aspirin is not good for a hangover but Alka Selzer is OK. Most formulations of Alka Selzer contain significant amounts of aspirin.

    Also, although Tylenol(acetaminophen) can cause renal failure, it is considered rare. A much bigger problem is its liver toxicity.

    Only a physician should be making comments about these issues and not a mixologist. A mixologist should talk about mixing drinks only. It doesn’t seem to make you qualified for more than that. I agree that the record should have been corrected immediately and not months later.
