Colbert Report Takes on Food Inc.

Stephen Colbert is well-known for his far-right conservative values and his ringing endorsement of big business. In fact, his television show, The Colbert Report, is sponsored by “Prescott Pharmaceuticals” makers of Vaxadrine, a detox pill that may cause self-cannibalism.

Colbert supports agribusiness and drinks high fructose corn syrup by the can load. So, see what happens when he goes head-to-head with Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, on his new project, Food Inc., about the dubious underbelly of the American food production industry.

This is not the first time Colbert has “argued” against natural foods and reforming the food industry. Last month, he squared off with New York Times journalist and author of In Defense of Food, Michael Pollan. Colbert tried to convince him there is nothing wrong with fake food.
