"Keith Russell Ablow is an American psychiatrist, author, and television personality. He is also a contributor on psychiatry for Fox News Channel and TheBlaze. Ablow resigned as a member of the American Psychiatric Association in 2011..."
" His 2011 book, The 7, co-authored by Glenn Beck, was released in January 2011 and was a New York Times bestseller. In November, St. Martin's Press published a second Ablow book, Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony: A Psychological Portrait.
Ablow serves as chief spokesperson and brand ambassador for Golo, a company that sells a weight loss supplement. Progressive media watchdog group Media Matters for America has raised questions about whether Ablow's endorsement of Golo violates Fox News' policy against product endorsements.
According to the Associated Press, Ablow "freely mixes psychiatric assessments with political criticism, a unique twist in the realm of cable news commentary that some medical colleagues find unethical." Ablow has, for instance, frequently diagnosed former President Obama as having "abandonment issues" without ever having met or treated the former president.
Ablow has asserted that Obama dislikes the United States, that he prefers Africa to the United States, and wants the United States to dissolve. Ablow promoted a conspiracy theory that Obama wanted Ebola to spread to America because he wanted America to suffer as much as poor countries.
He publicly speculated that Vice President Joe Biden had dementia after his 2012 VP debate performance.
Ford Vox, a staff physiatrist at the Shepherd Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta, said that Ablow's attempts to connect his political views to medical analysis "is really just irresponsible and it's embarrassing for physicians in general".
Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, chairman of psychiatry at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, and past president of the American Psychiatric Association, said that "It is shameful and unfortunate that he is given a platform by Fox News or any other media organization. Basically he is a narcissistic self-promoter of limited and dubious expertise."
Ablow has promoted pseudoscientific commentaries about gender identity.
During the 2012 Republican primary, Ablow wrote a column arguing that Newt Gingrich's three marriages actually made him more qualified to be president. He wrote: "When three women want to sign on for life with a man who is now running for president, I worry more about whether we'll be clamoring for a third Gingrich term, not whether we'll want to let him go after one."
The column was criticized, with Rod Dreher of The American Conservative commenting thus: "Oh for frack's sake. At some point, you have to wonder when shamelessness crosses the line from character defect to psychopathology. If only Dr. Leo Spaceman were a Republican, he could have a lucrative career on Fox."
In 2012, he said that the 2012 World Cup was a a plot by President Obama to distract America from what Ablow believed were Obama scandals.
