The Fix Weighs in On Weiner

By Will Godfrey 06/15/11

Our own Joe Schrank gave a TV interview on Weiner's addiction, public perceptions of the disease and even New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Anthony Weiner is headed out to an undisclosed location, but the parade of pundits continues. This morning, our own Joe Schrank, interventionist and Editor-At-Large of The Fix, was interviewed by veteran broadcaster Laurie Dhue on WPIX in New York. Their conversation covered Anthony Weiner's admission to rehab for sex addiction, as well as public perceptions of sex addiction and addiction in general—even making mention of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's alleged food addiction. Joe also offered advice on how to help your loved ones if they are engaging in similarly risky behavior. Watch the video here:
