"I'm not a real bioethicist, I just play one on TV!"

Earlier this year, we blogged about House, MD and Grey's Anatomy: Showing the world the need for clinical ethicists one episode at a time.
Reuters claims that health experts help TV docs get facts straight:
"That young mother with breast cancer on "Grey's Anatomy" may do more than just drive the storyline: She may also be teaching you something.
Recognizing the reach of popular television shows, real-life doctors and public health experts are at work behind the scenes to add a dose of education to entertainment."

Now if they could only get a bioethicist on House MD to stop his bad-boy behavior! (or in the case of Grey's Anatomy, bad-boy, bad-girl, just plain bad behavior).
