The Christian Post – CBS and NBC edited or ignored comments that Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek made about prayers helping his recovery, said a media watchdog group. When Trebek, diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, spoke to People Magazine, he credited prayer with playing a factor in the success of his chemo treatments.
“I told the doctors, this has to be more than just chemo. I’ve had a couple million people out there who expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy and their prayers. The doctors said it could very well be an important part of this,” Trebek said.
