The 61-year-old Oz has begun hiring a staff and reaching out to potential allies, according to influential Republicans familiar with his plans. It is unclear when he is planning an official announcement.
...
Critics are likely to home in not only on Oz's flimsy ties to the Keystone State but also on the quack solutions—miracle cures for everything from fat loss (raspberry ketones, green coffee beans) to longevity (red palm oil)—that he has hawked to an enormous audience amidst serious and sensible medical advice.

His advocacy for miracle cures is also prompting concerns from senior Republicans involved in next year's Senate races, one of whom told the Free Beacon that Oz's "long trail of issues that would be instant fodder for any Democrat running against him."
...
A dual U.S. and Turkish citizen, Oz served in the Turkish Army in the 1980s and has since developed a relationship with the country's president, the strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

That’ll keep him off network TV due to equal time rules.

Not at all.

But equal time rules mean that his opponent gets to have equivalent airtime for every one of his daytime talk show appearances and infomercials.

It's a free-for-all (Not sure if the Ted Nugent reference is intended or not. Probably.)

Nope. Has to be prime time that was given by the network to the candidate.

Prime time is commonly used as an example, but that's not the reg.

If the candidate gets morning airtime, his opponent is allowed morning airtime.

[definitions.uslegal.com]

Equal time doctrine states that the U.S. broadcast stations permitting a political candidate for public office to use the facility for broadcasting must also give an equal opportunity to all other candidates for the office. Equal time doctrine is also known as equal time rule.

According to 47 USCS § 315, equal time doctrine is codified in the Communications Act, 1934. There are four exceptions whereby the equal time doctrine is not valid :

1. documentary;

2. bona fide news interview;

3. scheduled newscast;

4. on-the-spot news event.

The following is an example of a case law describing equal time doctrine:
Equal time doctrine has been described as a "contingent right of access"; it does not require a licensee to offer time to any candidate, but once a candidate is permitted to use the station, the station must provide other candidates with equal time at an equal rate, at a comparable hour of the day, and with a similar format for presentation. The purpose of the equal time doctrine is to facilitate political debate by qualified candidates.[Rosenberg v. City of Everett, 328 F.3d 12 (1st Cir. Mass. 2003)]

In Texas: Doctor Phil vs Matthew McConaughey (who recently discovered he doesn't like vaxx mandates) sounds like he's reconsidering his previous reconsideration.
