Nevada Governor Speaks Out About Health Clinic

 Washington (dbTechno) – Gov. Jim Gibbons of Nevada has come out and made some comments in regards to the Las Vegas endoscopy center.  This health clinic was linked to an outbreak of hepatitis C, as well as medical violations. Gibbons has made some controversial remarks, coming to the defense of the center.  It has been the center of attention in the state since the practice of unsafe syringe use was discovered.

Pay special attention to the last sentence in the 2nd paragraph.

As much of a problem as I have with the media, ‘focusing on the facts’ is a good thing. It’s when they go outside of the ‘fact’ arena that they run into problems.

UPDATE:  The previously published article has been changed to omit the last few words of the 2nd paragraph where the governor stuck his foot in his mouth.  You can see the google results HERE:

What it said was ‘Gibbons has come out to the defense of the Las Vegas endoscopy center. He has been speaking out about various things in regards to these incidents, hinting at times that the media may have gone too far with the focus on the facts.’
