Media Continues to Ignore Fetterman's Health Issues Despite Lengthy Absence

Mainstream media outlets continue to ignore health questions related to Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) despite his stroke during his 2022 campaign and lengthy absence in the Senate.

Fetterman has been hospitalized for weeks with clinical depression, with few mentions of his current status or future ability to lead in Congress.

"Mental illness should not be covered any differently than any other illness," Dr. Marc Siegel told Fox News Digital. "Having said that, the people of Pennsylvania are owed a senator... we certainly deserve more transparency here."

"It's all political positioning rather than health concern or ability to function," Siegel added about the media's incuriosity.

"John Fetterman is making progress in his recovery from clinical depression and could leave Walter Reed within next two weeks, a person close to the senator told me. The senator's physician recently informed him that he will be 'as good or better than his best days post-stroke,'" he tweeted.

"Fetterman's stay has lasted this long because the doctors have been trying to get his 'medication balance exactly right,' per source. For instance, doctors learned his blood pressure med was too high, which may have contributed to dizziness when he went to GW hospital last month," he added.

Fetterman has been in the hospital for two months, leading to growing concerns about his ability to remain in his role.

The senator was only in office about a month before his first hospitalization, with Fetterman now gone more than he has been available as a senator.

Even if Fetterman is released in two weeks and returns to work, there is little certainty that a senator recovering from a stroke and with clinical depression will be able to maintain the schedule of a senator.

The concerns are especially important as this is his first year in a six-year term, with Democrats holding only a slim majority in the Senate.
