RFK, Jr. needs a dose of his own medicine
I didn't see the interview, given that I was busy getting this week's Skeptics' Circle ready that night, but a few readers e-mailed me about it. Sadly, it appears that Jon Stewart dropped the ball on this one. I realize he's just a comedian trying to be entertaining (although there are times when I get the feeling that he thinks he's something more than that), but what happened to his trademark sarcasm when it comes to dubious conspiracy theories? Maybe the Kennedy mystique shut it down. Or maybe he doesn't mind wild-eyed unsubstantiated conspiracy theories as long as they're wild-eyed unsubstantiated conspiracy theories theories that implicate the government and big pharma.
