Dr. Phil Show: You Can't Throw Us Under the Bus

11/30/2009 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. PhilDr. Phil wants everyone to know he wasn't responsible for a 2007 bus crash that injured 17 mothers -- it was all that pesky bus company's fault.

According to docs filed last week in L.A. Superior Court, the production company behind the "Dr. Phil" show claims it ain't their problem the bus they hired to transport a group of mothers to see the show had faulty brakes ... and ultimately plowed into a tree.

The "Dr. Phil" show was sued back in September by 5 passengers who claimed the show "negligently hired" a crappy bus to transport them to a taping of the show -- and therefore the crash was partly the show's fault.

So far, Dr. Phil's company has denied all liability -- but if a court says Dr. Phil and his people are liable anyway, the show wants the bus company to cover their fair share of the damages.

Dr. Phil is not responsible for maintaining the integrity of those buses. And how could he have foreseen this crash? I think they are going after the show, because it probably has deeper pockets than the bus company.

How could Dr. Phil have known about the faulty brakes on that bus? Why would he have wanted the bad press surrounding the crash? We can't hold him responsible for this. It would be so silly.

He's just another Idiot    

Does anyone watch Dr. Phil? I don't know anyone who watches that Fake Dipstick. If you want to watch a smart, real Medical Doctor, tune into Dr. Oz. I learn something new every time I watch.

It's about time that the police assert their responsibility in this matter. If Tiger was running from an assault and was a victim of spousal abuse, he is continuing a cycle of violence in his family by hiding the abuse. He may not want this out in the public, but he needs counseling and intervention if he has been abused by his spouse. Violence is not acceptable. I don't care if he cheated on her or not in the matter of violence. If she thought he was sleeping around, she should hire an attorney and get a divorce....not resort to violence.

Also, if Tiger and his wife were involved in mutual violence...they definitely need treatment because there are 2 children witnessing this tragedy. There were minor children in the home, the public's interest is to determine if they may be in harm due to violence between the adults. The police needs to investigate.
