On January 25, 2015 between 1 -1:30 PM, CBS will be broadcasting a program called American Health Front and will be featuring a NJ physical therapist performing dry needling.
We need everyone you know to call CBS and leave a complaint message.
Here is a template of what you can say and feel free to use this exactly:
My name is _____ and I am an (acupuncturist/acupuncture patient or acupuncture academic). The program “American Health Front”, showcasing North Jersey Physical Therapy, (scheduled to air 1/25/15 between 1 and 1:30 PM)) should be cancelled. If CBS was to air such content pertaining to Dry Needling, which both the NY and NJ regulatory agencies have declared to be the unlicensed practice of acupuncture and does not fall into the scope of practice of the featured provider, you would be confusing the public and compromising public safety. Dry Needling is considered a class D Felony. Further, airing the program will lead to countless complaints filed with the FCC. I strongly request that CBS cancel this program.
The number you should call is: 212-975-4321 and ask for “program information” and leave the above message.
