    Dr. Gina Loudon

    I saw this woman on one of the cable news shows (FOX, I believe), so of course I couldn't resist looking up her background. It's kind of like nailing Jello to the wall, all she mentions on her website is that her undergrad degree is from William Woods University (no issues there), and "one" of her Master's degrees is from Saint Louis University (great school), awarded after a fight where the circumstances aren't specific.

    About #Dr.Gina - #DrGina

    I've looked in several other places, and the best I've been able to do with her Ph.D. (supposedly in Human Behavior) are references to an "online university in California", but nothing more specific.

    I'm always curious about the backgrounds of "doctors" on television, and this one seems like a cipher. Anyone know anything further?

    Thanks for sharing this, Bruce. I thought I was the only one who did this kind of thing.

    Which means calling her PhD a degree from an "online school in California" is absurd. Fielding requires quite a bit of residential learning and faculty contact.

    Haha!! No, I do it all the time. I have yet to spot a complete fake on TV, other than the infamous "Love Doctor" Ruth Sucato (who I never actually saw, I just found her bio online). Law of averages though, I'm bound to find one sooner or later.

    When you want to do a hit piece on someone, pesky things like facts don't matter.
