There is no doubt that every time Dr. Nancy Snyderman does a story on NBC News, someone will be thinking about how she broke her ebola quarantine.
Page Six says that NBC execs are still divided over how to deal with Snyderman.
The TV Doc kicked off a firestorm when she voluntarily agreed to quarantine herself for 21 days after returning to the US from West Africa, but was spotted getting takeout from a New Jersey restaurant.
NBC has to decide if her credibility is too damaged for her to continue reporting on medical issues.
One network source said: “Nancy’s quarantine was up two weeks ago, but there is still a debate going on at NBC News among senior managers, some who feel she should be fired for not following advice to quarantine herself. But others feel that NBC News should stand by Snyderman, since she was sent by them to Liberia to report.”
NBC News President Deborah Turness had issued a memo to staff in late October saying that Snyderman and those who traveled with her to Liberia would take “some time with their families” and would return “next month (which is this month).”
So far, Snyderman has yet to be seen on air.
