P.S. HBO, I don't care how much you're pushing it to Last Week Tonight viewers, the great majority of us have NO INTEREST in Real Time With Bill Maher. UGH.

It seems that the solution to the weird FDA/USDA split would be to reshuffle their responsibilities.

That fox business bit was just creepy.

Always great, thanks for posting these. I know it's old hat by now, but I love the flip of comedy/news compared to the old Daily Show or Colbert Report. I only found old articles saying he thinks he isn't, which now is a bit disappointing, but he clearly cares, does great in-depth stories, and investigates really important issues.
