Why this radiologist's report gets 1/10

"I would like some advice please. I am a 46-year-old male with an off and on cough for 4-5 months. I have never smoked. After my primary care physician examined me, he ordered a chest X-ray.

Well, I read it and to me it doesn't sound what you would call totally normal,
