Claire McCaskill scolds Dr. Oz at hearing on weight loss scams

TV's Dr. Oz says he is used to being a “cheerleader” for healthier lifestyles every day in front of 3 million people. On Tuesday, he discovered he was not in the studio, but in a Capitol Hill woodshed. After being chastised by Sen. Claire McCaskill, he apologized – to a degree – for using “flowery” language promoting the use of controversial weight-loss products like green coffee extract.
