It's not quite fair to say that Frist diagnosed Schiavo from a TV screen,

Not quite fair?! Clearly from the faith based community perspective perhaps. Watch the video clip, Bobo. Watch the clip. Listen to the words. Dr. Frist, who rarely misses an opportunity to remind people of his medical degree, made an announcement as to Ms. Schiavo's well being. That is a de facto diagnosis.

Sure sounded like a diagnosis to me. He began his speech by reminding us all that he is a doctor. He later says he spent an hour in in office watching Terri Schiavo on his television, and that her condition looked like something other than a persistent vegetative state.
