CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta on responsible reporting during a health crisis like the Ebola outbreak.
Here are some of the highlights from the conversation...
>> "It's a teachable moment, I think, if it's done properly."
>> Dr. Gupta on two extremes: "There are people who are really, really sort of nurturing that hysteria... And the other side, the other extreme is people [who] are completely dismissive of fears, very clinical, just presenting the science. And as you might guess, I think the right way for television is somewhere in between, obviously making sure the science trumps it."
>> Dr. Gupta agreed with Stelter that there is sometimes "a disconnect between what people are hearing from the people on TV and what they're reading in the banners... We try to have conversations with the shows ahead of time, when I'm doing segments, to make sure that doesn't happen. It's a real concern."
>> "I think the layers to this story are really essential, really... Just the headline, that's a real problem. But adding one more layer over that is absolutely essential. Tom Frieden, the CDC director, says 'Ebola is going to come to the United States.' That's the headline. The second line he says after that, 'but it will not cause an outbreak.' You can't have the first without the second."
