Dr. Oz's Free Cab Giveaway Is Not Free for Everyone
Dr. Oz, the heir apparent to Oprah's throne of daytime TV, gave away free cab rides to his adoring commuter fans yesterday. The promotion was an attempt to advertise his move to 4 p.m. -- the most coveted daytime spot. There were also blood pressure checks and Dr. Oz even drove one of the cabs himself! As you can tell from Dr. Oz's lean on the cab at right, the event was chock-full of enjoyment. But there's some controversy here. An Oz-hating cabbie ruined one person's day.
