'The Food, the Bad, and the Ugly': Jon Stewart Mocks Food Safety Opponents

>With the Senate having passed its FDA Food Safety Modernization Act on Tuesday, food safety is once again in the news—and this time, the story is big enough to qualify for a segment on The Daily Show. Watch Jon Stewart eat a hotdog ("I should have known you can't make flavor like that under proper conditions"), slurp questionable SpaghettiOs, and cue a montage featuring a true gem from Glenn Beck: "Now you might be thinking to yourself, 'Glenn, I think my food is already safe'—but that's just how stupid you are. They know better in Washington!"
