Listen To “Sell Out” Here
Washington, D.C. – Today, Senate Majority PAC (SMP) is launching a new multi-million dollar radio ad campaign in the Pennsylvania Senate race against Mehmet Oz, first reported by The Hill.
The 60-second spot, titled “Sell Out,” highlights how Oz used his television show to make millions pushing miracles cures and promoting irresponsible medical advice—benefitting himself while selling out his patients. It will reach voters statewide beginning Tuesday.
According to the Washington Post, “Oz provided a platform for potentially dangerous products and fringe viewpoints, aimed at millions of viewers, according to medical experts, public health organizations and federal health guidance.”
“Mehmet Oz has no place in the U.S. Senate—unless it’s being hauled in front of Congress to be held accountable for hawking fake miracle cures and pushing reckless medical advice,” said Maryam Ahmed, spokesperson for Senate Majority PAC. “We’re making sure voters know the truth about Oz: as a celebrity doctor, he repeatedly sold out his patients to benefit himself and he would do the same to Pennsylvanians as a Senator.”

“Sell Out” Ad Transcript:
“He calls himself a Doctor…
But Doctor Oz sold out his patients.
On his TV show, Oz promoted reckless and dangerous medical advice.
And made millions of dollars pushing fake miracle cures like this:
[Oz]: ‘This miracle pill can burn fat fast.’
[Oz]: ‘Could this be the miracle pill?’
[Oz]: ‘I’ve got the number one miracle in a bottle to burn your fat.’
Just one problem… they were scams.
So, Oz got sued for it… again and again.
And hauled in front of Congress, where Senators from both political parties called him out for lying.
But Oz was just getting started.
He made millions more investing in big drug companies…
While they jacked up the price of prescription drugs like insulin and pushed opioids in Pennsylvania.
That’s the real Doctor Oz.
He’s a sell out.
And he’s out for himself…
[Oz]: ‘We always tell the patients the truth.’”
