Comedy Central’s Daily Show Addresses Ag-Gag Bills

The tongue-in-cheek news show criticizes ag-gag laws, featuring undercover factory farm footage that led to animal-cruelty convictions.

The Daily Show recently interviewed a Mercy For Animals and The Humane Society of the United States activist who shot undercover footage of a slaughterhouse employee beating cows with a wrench.

The news show––known for its sarcastic, humorous social commentary––featured comedian Al Madrigal questioning Emily Meredith from the Animal Agriculture Alliance on what she says are standard industry practices filmed out of context or skewed by organizations. “So let me get this straight,” he asks, “you’re protecting the animals from the people who are trying to protect the animals?”
