I dont understand this install... didnt he have to cut out at least 2 vertical studs and a horizontal stud too. Is removing two load-bearing studs smart? And what about the door clearance?

Not sure how real this is. I got an email a few weeks ago with this picture included along with several others. The title of the e-mail was "You might be a redneck if...this is your idea of a flat screen wall mountable TV! Katzman

True if it's a load bearing wall. All walls are not load bearing.

It's OK if the correct headers are used. For example all external doors and windows are holes topped with headers.

And what about the door clearance?

Not great, but I've seen worse in a $2,400,000 new house. The door from the garage swung into where the microwave oven was located. But in the monster master bedroom suite, the bathroom door hit the toilet or the owner's knees just past 90 degrees of it's ark.
